DeAndre Hopkins tosses shade at Texans with Thanksgiving tweet
As part of a tweet that was sent out on Thanksgiving, Hopkins appeared to take a jab at the Texans, who traded the star wideout for running back David Johnson. The Cardinals sent the Texans a second-round pick in the 2020 draft (40th overall) and a fourth-round pick in 2021.
I’m thankful for the @AZCardinals believing in me enough to trade me for a 2nd rounder 🙏🏾🙏🏾

Hopkins has been a force to be reckoned with for the Cardinals. With 912 yards to his credit, the former Clemson standout is currently leading the team in receiving. He’s made 72 receptions this season, bringing down four touchdowns passes along the way.
Hopkins has become the No. 1 option for the Cardinals — a role that he has embraced. He caught five of his eight targets for 51 yards in the Cardinals’ Week 11 loss to the Seahawks. This was an uncharacteristic stat line for D-Hop, to be sure. Larry Fitzgerald led the team in receiving yards in that game, bringing in eight catches for 62 yards.
According to a report from rotoworld.com, Hopkins missed Tuesday and Wednesday’s practice sessions with an illness. His ailment is not believed to be associated with COVID-19.
Hopkins and the Cardinals will be back in action on November 29, when they’ll travel to New England for a matchup against the Patriots. Kick-off inside Gillette Stadium is set for 1:00 p.m. ET, with FOX having live broadcast coverage.
