5. DeAndre Hopkins, Texans: $24,000,000
A week before the start of the 2017 season, the Texans signed star wideout DeAndre Hopkins to a 5-year extension worth $81 million, making him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. His production this season justified the massive extension, as Hopkins finished the regular season with 96 catches for 1,378 yards and 13 touchdowns. Those stats are even more impressive than they seem when you consider Hopkins was catching passes from Tom Savage for half the season.
