Texans’ DeAndre Hopkins keeping mum on hand strength regimen
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has the surest hands in the NFL, but he isn’t ready to give away his secrets on how he builds up his hand strength. Last season Hopkins caught 115 passes and didn’t drop a single one—and those are the expectations and more for this season.
Earlier this week Hopkins revealed that he used to catch flies with his bare hands, but that has to do more with hand speed over hand strength.
Hopkins said there are many other things that he does at his home to improve his hand strength, but doesn’t want to let others know what it is because he needs a leg up on the rest of the receivers.
“There’s a lot of little things that I do at home, during the day, to work on my hands, my hand strength,” Hopkins said. “While I’m driving I do certain things. I can’t give it away. I do those things because I know someone else is trying to come take my position, trying to come take that title. Making first-team All-Pro is not something you can do back-to-back if you’re just sitting at home chilling.”
It’s clear that Brown thinks he has some of the best exercises to help his hands, but he is going to be keeping it as classified information.
This season the Texans have expectations of competing for the AFC South division title and if they are going to win it, Hopkins’ hands are going to be a big reason why.
