Former Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins did not report to Texans camp and will hold out for a bigger contract according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hopkins has two years left on his NFL rookie contract and will make $1 million in base salary in 2016 unless the two sides agree to a new deal. Hopkins can be fined $40,000 for each day missed.

Last season, Hopkins pulled in 111 receptions for 1,521 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns from often suspect quarterback play.
