Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Taken into custody Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman was taken into custody by the University of Texas police department on Sunday and charged with marijuana possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon, Brian Davis of the American-Statesman reports.

With the legal process just beginning, we won't speculate on a possible suspension, but there's a chance the Texans take action once all is said and done. A third-round pick out of Texas, Foreman is expected to compete for the No. 2 running back role behind starter Lamar Miller, although it remains to be seen how Sunday's events will affect his standing.

Texans' D.J. Reader: Primed for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have "no concerns" that Reader will be able to replace Vince Wilfork at nose tackle, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans' 2016 fifth-round pick -- who was viewed as more of a rotational lineman coming out of Clemso -- started seven games in his rookie season and proved sufficiently capable of occupying double teams and clogging up the trenches at the professional level. While he finished the year with only 22 tackles and one sack across 16 appearances, Reader seems to be a lock to improve upon his 40-percent snap count from a season ago and, in turn, should have more of an opportunity to rack up the counting stats in his sophomore campaign.

Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Still confident he'll get extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hopkins remains confident his agent will work out a long-term deal with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. "Those talks are between the Texans and my agent, but this city has embraced me just like my hometown in South Carolina has," said Hopkins. "I love being here. I love playing for this team, great organization."

Hopkins is under contract this season at his fifth-year-option salary of $7.915 million, coming off what was easily the least efficient campaign -- 6.4 yards per target, 12.2 per catch -- of his otherwise impressive career. Brock Osweiler proved far worse than the subpar quarterbacks Hopkins dealt with in previous seasons, finishing last in the league by a wide margin with 5.8 yards per pass attempt. The Texans and Hopkins seem to agree that the 25-year-old wideout was a victim of circumstances last season and probably still has his best football ahead of him. It may still take time to work things out, as Hopkins likely is targeting an extension that compares to the deals signed the past few years by Julio Jones, Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant and A.J. Green -- all of whom have five-year contracts for $14-15 million per season with 40-50 percent of the money guaranteed. The Texans may hope to pay him a tick below that rate, though he'd end up making quite a bit more if he were to rebound in 2017 and then hit the open market next offseason. Either way, Hopkins stands to benefit from Osweiler's departure, even though the combination of Tom Savage and Deshaun Watson doesn't seem too promising, at least for this season.
