Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins enjoying going up against Lions’ Darius Slay in joint practices
For all of the complaining we have heard from NFL players about joint practices over the last week, it seems that not all of them think they are so bad.
“Going against your team is fun, but we go against those guys every day so being able to go up against other guys like Darius Slay [is beneficial],” Hopkins said, per Avery Duncan of Texans Wire.
Hopkins understands that Slay is one of the best cornerbacks in the game, having made it to back-to-back Pro Bowls, so he is happy to get some work in against one of the game’s elite:
“Oh yeah, that was great work [facing Slay],” said Hopkins. “Darius is one of the best doing it right now, and he matched up against me well.”
