Though the package they got in return for him was pretty universally panned, one of the reasons that some think that Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals this offseason was because he may soon ask for a pay raise, one it may have been hard for them to accommodate with a new deal for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and one looming for quarterback Deshaun Watson.
