Vegas odds on DeAndre Hopkins' next NFL team
|Monday, May 22, 2023, 5:00 PM- -|
The NFL offseason is often filled with rumors and speculation about player movement, and this year is no different.
One player who has found himself at the center of trade talks is DeAndre Hopkins, the talented wide receiver and former Clemson standout.
Multiple reports suggest that the Arizona Cardinals are considering trading Hopkins.
However, any potential trade would require Hopkins' approval, as he reportedly has a no-trade clause in his contract.
The Cardinals may be looking to move Hopkins in order to address other needs on their roster or to potentially free up cap space.
Hopkins, a three-time All-Pro receiver, still has over $34 million left on his current contract, which runs for two more years.
