Texans' DeAndre Hopkins wants Oilers jersey back in Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- DeAndre Hopkins has Houston stirred up after his latest Instagram post.

Wednesday, the Texans wide receiver posted a photo of himself in a Houston Oilers jersey, asking followers "Who would like to see this?"

Hopkins' followers seem to think the idea is legit, as does J.J. Watt, who said last week he'd like to see the Tennessee Titans give up the rights to the throwback uniforms to Houston in response to a "Happy Birthday" tweet from the NFL.

"Thank you NFL. I'll check the mail for my present. (Gift idea hint: Get the Titans to give us the rights to the Houston Oilers throwback uniforms)," Watt tweeted.

Thet topic has been an ongoing discussion for the star defensive end. The tweet below was from last year.

"I understand why, but man it's such a shame we can't rock the baby blue Houston Oiler throwback uniforms one time," he wrote.



Other Texans players have been rocking the throwback jersey.

Deshaun Watson traded his Texans jersey for a Houston Oilers jersey.



Moon sent the jersey to Watson after they built a relationship when they met a few years ago.



The jersey, of course, is part of the Titans franchise. The Oilers played in Houston from 1960 to 1996.
