Hopkins has been a top receiver in the league for several years, known for his impressive catches and ability to make big plays. He was originally drafted by the Houston Texans in 2013 and played there for seven seasons before being traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2020.
Hopkins recorded 853 catches for, 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns in his career.
However, it seems that the Cardinals are now willing to part ways with the talented receiver. While they initially asked for a second-round pick and another asset in exchange for Hopkins, it seems that this price may be too high for interested teams.
Sports Illustrated reporter Albert Breer recently weighed in on the potential trade, stating that he believes it is unlikely that the Cardinals will receive their initial asking price. Instead, he thinks that the trade will be more similar to the deal that sent Brandin Cooks from the Houston Texans to the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, which involved a fifth-round pick and a sixth-round pick.
While it remains to be seen which team will ultimately acquire Hopkins, it is clear that there is significant interest in the talented receiver. Any team that is able to acquire him would likely gain a valuable asset for their offense, and could potentially see an improvement in their overall performance on the field.
As the NFL offseason continues, fans will undoubtedly be watching closely to see how this situation unfolds and where Hopkins will ultimately end up.
