Eric Gordon shocked by trade of Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins

The Houston Texans made a truly shocking trade on Monday that floored many within the NFL.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle added several draft pick details, which includes the Texans getting a second-round pick in this year's draft.

Hopkins entered the National Football League as a first-round pick of Houston's back in 2013 and has made four Pro Bowl appearances while earning three First-Team All-Pro selections.

The NFL's top receiver is on the move.

NFL Insider Adam Schefter was the first to report that the Cardinals had traded David Johnson to the Houston Texans, which would retain the running backs entire salary. This is all great news for their second-year quarterback Kyler Murray, who lacked for weapons as a rookie.

Arizona gets a true WR1 and the Cards can double up next month and take advantage of a deep wide receiver class. I repeat: The Houston Texans have actually agreed to trade DeAndre Hopkins. Through the first six games, Johnson was averaging 102.2 total yards per game and had scored five touchdowns. He was a first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler each year. He registered 104 receptions for 1,165 yards with seven touchdowns through 15 starts last season. Johnson had 715 yards from scrimmage on 130 touches. If trading Hopkins is a sign Houston wants to be even more balanced on offense, that could mean big things for Johnson.
