Since being released by the Arizona Cardinals, the market for DeAndre Hopkins has considerably cooled down.

Teams don’t seem to agree with his asking price so far, but somebody is bound to pull the trigger sooner or later.

One team to rule out though is the Dallas Cowboys, as executive Stephen Jones reveals why the team is not going to pursue DeAndre Hopkins.

According to Pro Football Talk, Jones claims that the acquisition of Brandin Cooks will prevent Dallas from pursuing Hopkins. Here’s what he said during Clarence E. Hill Jr.

“He’s not on this team right now. We went down the road with [Brandin] Cooks. We’re very comfortable with Cooks. We’re pleased with our receiving group.”

At the end of the day, his reasoning makes sense. The Cowboys already have CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Michael Gallup. Additionally, Jalen Tolbert is expected to progress from his rookie campaign.

Considering DeAndre Hopkins has dealt with injuries these last two seasons, perhaps signing him doesn’t make sense fr the Cowboys.

Especially considering they already have a plethora of weapons at their disposal.

For now, it remains unclear where Hopkins will land. The Cleveland Browns seem to be a real possibility at this point. Meanwhile, rumors still connect the star wide receiver with the Kansas City Chiefs.

We also can’t rule out a possible reunion with the Houston Texans, as reports suggest he’s interested in returning to Houston.

With several teams bowing out of the race, we should have an answer relatively soon.

Keep an eye out for more updates, as DeAndre Hopkins is the most exciting player remaining in the free agent pool.
