Despite being traded this offseason, DeAndre Hopkins is clearly still very interested in what's going on with the Houston Texans. Of course, that makes sense, as he spent years developing strong relationships with his teammates in Houston.

After wide receiver Will Fuller erupted for an absurd Thanksgiving Day performance against the Detroit Lions, Hopkins took to Twitter to hype up the former Robin to his Batman.

Hopkins was the clear alpha and No. 1 WR when the two played together in Houston. That made Will Fuller one of the league's best WR2's.

Hopkins wants it to be known, however, that Fuller is not just a WR2. He's got the opportunity now, and he's clearly a dominant No. 1 WR himself.

A 6-reception, 171-yard, 2-touchdown performance on Thursday gave Fuller at least 170 yards in a game for the second time in his NFL career. Hopkins has achieved that feat three times, and he's played over twice as many games as Fuller.

Hopkins may not have much love left for the Texans' front office, but he clearly still shares a close bond with his former teammates.
