Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will likely be traded this offseason, but where should the star player land? Teams will likely be lining up to acquire Hopkins’ services. The future Hall of Famer has enjoyed a wickedly successful career, but seems to be down to the final few years of it.
The Cardinals traded for him a couple of years ago to help out Kyler Murray, and now they’ll look to trade him to another team to hopefully have the same impact for their quarterback. He’ll turn 31 years old this summer, but I’m not sure he’s lost much of a step, so I’d expect that teams would be willing to pay for his services.
Which teams should be the first in line to make a trade for DeAndre Hopkins?
Three trade destinations for receiver DeAndre Hopkins
Green Bay Packers
It’s pretty obvious that the Green Bay Packers were missing some dynamic playmaking on offense this year after the departure of Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. In one last effort to win another Super Bowl and to keep Aaron Rodgers happy, the Packers should send whatever is necessary to land Hopkins.
Rodgers would instantly develop a connection with the veteran receiver, and I think we’d see the dynamic 2020 and 2021 offense come alive again in 2023. No offense to the crop of pass catchers in Green Bay in 2022, but none will have a sliver of impact on the offense that Hopkins would have.
However, I do think it’s too little, too late for the Packers, but they are in need of someone like D-Hop.
