Best destination for DeAndre Hopkins if traded by Arizona

DeAndre Hopkins appears likely to be transferred to a new team this offseason. Who is the best fit for the future Hall of Famers?

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The trade market for five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is heating up, with an Arizona reunion looking increasingly unlikely for the 31-year-old.

NFL insider Benjamin Allbright listed four teams that were interested in Hopkins’ services while also having the capital to make a trade work: the New England Patriots, the New York Giants, the Tennessee Titans and the Atlanta Falcons.

NFL hosts Tyler Rowland and Alex Clancy aren’t sure they see a desirable fit between those teams because of lackluster quarterback play with those franchises.

“If I had to pick one of those four teams to match Hopkins, the only one I would pick would be the Giants,” Rowland said. “Just because you trust Brian Daboll, they went to a playoff game last year and the need is there.”

Of course, there could be more than just these four teams interested in Hopkins, and Rowland goes on to list his preferred target for the future Hall of Famer:

“The Bills need a real wide receiver number two,” Rowland said. “You have to give everything this year. He [Hopkins] could be a security blanket for Josh Allen. That would also help Stefon Diggs open up.”

Arizona reportedly wants a second-round pick as its primary indemnity, though teams have shown an unwillingness to pay the price given Hopkins’ recent injury history.

Whether Arizona gets what they’re asking for Hopkins remains to be seen. For more on Hopkins and the trade rumors, watch the Locked on Cardinals podcast.
