DeAndre Hopkins: I can be the best WR in the NFL, Deshaun Watson can be the best QB
During the games when Deshaun Watson was their starting quarterback last season, the Texans were the highest-scoring team in the NFL. So it’s no surprise that Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins thinks he and Watson can be the best pair in the NFL this year.
Hopkins said at Houston’s Organized Team Activities that he sees the two of them developing into the best quarterback-receiver combination in football in 2018.
The Texans are coming off a 4-12 season, but with Watson and J.J. Watt returning to health, there’s every reason for plenty of optimism coming out of Houston.
Still, Lewan is showing up to work every day, even though it’s not mandatory. He figures something will get done when it gets done.
As of right now, there is no situation, Lewan said, via Terry McCormick of titaninsider.com. I understand that this is a business, and if something gets done here, that’s great. But if not, I understand it. That’s how it is. That’s how this game works. Whatever happens happens.
Lewan currently is scheduled to make $9.341 million on the fifth-year option the Titans exercised. He is not opposed to his representation, CAA, negotiating into the season if that’s what it takes to get a long-term deal.
When it comes to this kind of stuff, that’s why I have an agent, Lewan said. I don’t give them 3 percent to sit on their [expletive]. I’m being serious. If they want to go, and Jon [Robinson] wants to call, and they want to have a conversation, I’m more than willing to, but I’m not going to move forward any in my life not focusing on football. That’s the main most important thing, and I can’t lose track of what is important, and that’s playing football.
