DeAndre Hopkins is an American footballer; he plays as a wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL). During his college career, DeAndre Hopkins played football at Clemson. He was drafted in the 1st round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.

DeAndre Hopkins Trade Rumors

The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly looking for a trade partner with the star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the offseason. He is a capable downfield player who can provide a game-changing presence for the matches he will be playing in the 2023 NFL season. So he should generate a lot of interest from other franchises.

In 2022, the Cardinals were a huge letdown. Still, they could have performed much better if DeAndre had been available, as we remembered that he was suspended for the first 6 matches of the 2022 regular season for violating the NFL’s PED policy. While he was away, the Cardinals went 2-4, and by the time he was back, the team had looked broken to turn things around. DeAndre finished the 2022 regular season recording 717 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns on 64 receptions. 

Cardinals’ struggles could continue into 2023, as the team has parted ways with head coach Kliff Kingsbury, additionally the fact that quarterback Kyler Murray is still recovering from a season-ending injury. Suddenly, the Cardinals do not like an ideal situation for DeAndre.

And it’s not like DeAndre has plenty of years left. He will be completing 31 by the 2023 season. He is still a potential weapon and is capable of being one of the top options for any team’s passing attack. Here are 3 potential landing spots for DeAndre Hopkins outside of the Cardinals.
