He hasn’t necessarily had the experience of working with any franchise quarterbacks in his pro career, but DeAndre Hopkins has been more than pleased with what he’s seen from Deshaun Watson and Tom Savage.
The Houston Texans receiver isn’t picking a winner of his team’s quarterback battle, but he is confident the pair of competitors in camp this year.
“You know, through my whole career I think I’ve played with the most quarterbacks through any wide receiver’s career throughout my first four years,” Hopkins told NFL Network on Wednesday.
“So, I’ve never had stability at quarterback to be able to build chemistry in back to back years. So to have two guys like that in the locker room that I know can be franchise quarterbacks, it’s a great feeling.”
Over the past four seasons, Hopkins has lined up with Savage, Brock Osweiler, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates, Matt Schaub, and Case Keenum. While Watson was a national championship winner last season, Savage did not throw a touchdown in three appearances, passing for 461 yards on 46 completions. Clearly, Hopkins sees something more.
