Top Three Teams that Should Sign DeAndre Hopkins

After being traded from the Houston Texans to the Arizona Cardinals and playing for them for three seasons, veteran receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been released by the team. Over those three seasons, he put together 2,696 yards and 17 touchdowns. The biggest thing with Hopkins is staying healthy and on the field, but for a team in need of receiver help and a veteran who can help stabilize a receiving room, Hopkins provides the perfect player to look to. There are three teams automatically that come to mind that should be actively seeking to add Hopkins.

Buffalo Bills

“I’ve been through three or four general managers in my career, so a stable management. A quarterback who loves the game, a quarterback who brings everybody on board with him and pushes not just himself but everybody around him . . . and a great defense. A great defense wins championships.” That is a quote from Hopkins on what he wants, and the Buffalo Bills match all of that. The Bills have long been rumored to be a team interested in Hopkins, and with his release, things became a lot easier for them. Brandon Beane has created a contending team and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Josh Allen provides Hopkins with the stability at quarterback as well, and outside of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis the Bills the outside receiver spot lacks talent and Hopkins would bring that. 


Dallas Cowboys 

CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Brandin Cooks. Those are the three current top receivers for the Cowboys. Lamb is the bona fide star receiver, but Gallup has left a lot to be desired after missing time with injury and not having a 1,000-plus yard season since 2019. The Cowboys did bring in Cooks, who is coming off a 699-yard season, but that was over 13 games and had two 1,000-yard seasons in 2020 and 2021. Still, the receiving room needs a boost for Dak Prescott, and Hopkins would bring that. Hopkins would also provide Prescott with a reliable target that can come down with contested catches at a high rate, as he had 11 last year, and 90 total over his entire career. Adding an extra veteran to the receiving room would pay dividends for this offense. 


Philadelphia Eagles

Are the Eagles in need of a wide receiver? No. But they have exactly what Hopkins is looking for. Jalen Hurts took a massive leap last season, where he led his team to the Super Bowl. The offense already has A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, but the third receiving option leaves much to be desired, and Hopkins could fill that perfectly. Hopkins is already used to having a dual-threat quarterback during his time playing with Kyler Murray, and knows with his experience how to adjust mid-play to help his quarterback. The Eagles also have the championship-caliber defense that Hopkins mentioned. Plus, with the Cowboys potentially being rumored to have interest, it would be ideal for the Eagles to swoop in and not allow their rival to add him to their offense and instead further boost their own.
