DeAndre Hopkins Holding Out for New Contract; Will It Impact Brock Osweiler?

It’s been made clear by his production and from the words of coaches and opponents that DeAndre Hopkins is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL.

The Houston Texans parted ways with Andre Johnson and his huge contract, because they believed the blossoming Hopkins was ready to become an elite talent.

Hopkins became that and more, so now he wants to get paid for his production. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Hopkins is officially a holdout.

What that means for the Texans and more importantly Brock Osweiller, is anyone’s guess.

Hopkins was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season after 111 receptions for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns, and has gone on record praising Osweiler’s work ethic.

Ex-NFL Player Antonio Armstrong & Wife Killed by Their Teen Son (Video)

This is tragic news.

Former NFL player Antonio Armstrong and his wife Dawn were fatally shot by their teenage son in the family’s Houston home early Friday police, sources told KTRK-TV.

Armstrong’s wife, Dawn, was pronounced dead in their bedroom after their 16-year-old son dialed 911 around 1:30 a.m., police sources told KTRK-TV. Antonio Armstrong was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but multiple local media outlets reported that he had died later in the day.

Investigators who searched the southwest Houston home found a gun still smoking with a note next to it reading, “I’ve been watching you,” the TV station reported. Police arrested the 16-year-old boy. Sources close to the investigation said he was likely to be charged as an adult.

The Armstrong’s own a fitness company called 1st Class Training with three locations in the Houston area.

“There was nothing left out. There was no neglect or anything. There was nothing that even could possibly have justified this situation,” Dawn Armstrong’s cousin, Vaun Lee, told reporters. “This doesn’t even make sense. It makes no sense.”

“This was an outstanding family. The male of the family was an absolute hard-working breadwinner,” Dodson told KPRC-TV. “He was an associate pastor in an area church. He’s a great guy. The mother was apparently a great mother, according to family members. Like I said, it was kind of the all-American family.”

Antonio Armstrong, 42, starred at linebacker for the Texas A&M Aggies.

Richard Jefferson Recalls Time He Had Fistfight With Kenyon Martin

Richard Jefferson is no small dude by any stretch of the imagination, but did he really throw hands with the infamous Kenyon Martin.

The Cleveland Cavaliers reminisced recently with Max Resetar of SLAM Magazine about his time with the New Jersey Nets, and a crazy story detailing the fight he had with Martin, his former Nets teammate.

Jefferson says it all started with some trash talk between him and Bonzi Wells.

"My rookie year, we had gone on a west coast road trip. We had gotten off to a really, really good start that year. We had lost four in a row on that west coast road trip.

"Towards the end of the game, me and Bonzi Wells are kinda getting into it. Kenyon’s at the bottom of the free throw line and the referee tells Kenyon, ‘Tell your rookie to be quiet because I don’t wanna have to give him a technical this late into the game.’ Kenyon tells me, ‘Hey Richard, be quiet.’ Bonzi Wells goes, ‘Yeah! Listen to Kenyon and shut up.’ I just lose it. I’m like, ‘F, Bonzi! And F you too, Kenyon!’"

The story is hilarious, and you can pretty much sum up where it went from there. Things escalated quickly, according to Jefferson. 

"I go and sit down, I’m mad, pissed off. I’m sitting down and Kenyon comes in the locker room pissed off. I stand up and he pushes me down in my seat. We have a full-on fist fight. The only thing that saved me is Aaron Williams, and you remember how big he was, grabbed him from the back to try to calm him down. My last swing hits Aaron Williams in his lip and busts his lip open. At that point in time, I realize what is going on. I have no problem fighting Kenyon. Aaron? I don’t want any piece of Williams."

Jefferson went on to say that the fight brought him and Martin closer.
