DeAndre Hopkins Trade Rumors: DeAndre Hopkins is looking for best fit, Not most money
DeAndre Hopkins would love to play for a contender and win a Super Bowl. Let’s face it, that is every players dream situation, and there are two teams in the AFC right now that can offer that.
The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs right now are two contenders that could use some help at the wide receiver position.
The Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver is going to be traded, it is just a matter of when. Well, yesterday Mike Garafolo said Hopkins is looking for the best fit in a trade, not most money. He would be willing to take a new contract, and not necessarily the most money. He wants to win, and winning is a priority for the start wide receiver.
Ian Rapoport also stated that trade talks are ramping up, and I think it is something to keep an eye on because if winning truly is something that DHop is looking for it would be interesting to see where he puts the Chiefs and the Bills. There were rumors the Cowboys had interest in Hopkins, but they traded for Brandin Cooks, which likely eliminated them from the Hopkins trade rumors.
Hopkins has been the biggest name on the trading block all offseason, and in a year where elite receivers are hard to come by, he is still an option that must be tempting for several teams, even with his contract.
Some possible landing spots are the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and New York Giants, but you have to remember this, the star caught over 50% of contested catches last season and at 30 years old, he still likely has multiple seasons at the top before decline sets in. If a contender like the Bills or Chiefs can get him, what would it cost?
