When the Houston Texans and head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien decided to send star wide receiver D'Andre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in a deal that most perceived as raw for Houston's side of things, he was heavily criticized, and rightfully so.

While Hopkins has been relatively quiet about the move, sometimes actions can speak louder than words. And he certainly joined that conversation when he liked a recent tweet arguing in favor of the Texans moving on from him.

Thanks to a screengrab from reddit user u/MyOtherActGotBanned, this subtle action from Hopkins was captured.

While there's always speculation in these sorts of things, it does seem like one of the more viable interpretations would be thinking that Hopkins is clearly liking this as motivation or for motivational reasons.

And for a player of that talent level and established production, playing the 2020 season with a chip on his shoulder and paired with new QB Kyler Murray is a scary thought.
