The past few weeks during the offseason have been filled with unexpected twists and turns, leading to a whirlwind of emotions for the fans. Despite being one of the most ruthless wide receivers in the league, DeAndre Hopkins was released from his team. The Cardinals were both unable to meet his expectations or trade him to a new home. Being a free agent and struggling to find a new home has been very challenging for the soon-to-be 31 years old WR.

There were numerous rumors about other teams’ interest in recruiting Hopkins. From Patrick Mahomes to Jalen Hurts, it felt almost certain that Hopkins is on his way to landing a lucrative deal and playing with his desired players. But time and time again there came only bad news for Hopkins. Recently the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans revealed that neither of those teams will be signing Hopkins. Amidst the rejections and speculations Hopkins tweeted a cryptic post that left the fans in more suspense.

The three-time first-team All-Pro wide receiver’s online activity is definitely unusual. Firstly he refuses to negotiate with his former team with a pay cut, and then likes a tweet that suggests that he does not care about a ‘top-of-the-market deal‘. He was very vocal about his selection of players that he covets to play with, but he never also disclosed if any team had reached out to him with a deal.

The most satisfactory teams for Hopkins

Hopkins revealed that his most desired QB to play with is Josh Allen. It was later revealed that the Bills were the most interested in trade talks with the Cardinals for Hopkins, so it is fairly appropriate for them to make a move on him now. Chris Fowler, an NFL insider revealed that the Bills and Chiefs are the top two contenders to make a move on Hopkins. The Chiefs are in grave need of a wide receiver on their team. Several reports have indicated that they tried to negotiate a deal with less pay as Hopkins currently insists on a staggering $19.45 million contract, which the team can not afford. But as there are no reports of them shaking hands it’s safe to say they haven’t come to an agreement.

To sum it up, there are thousands of speculations and rumors all around the internet. But all the uncertainty aside, Hopkins did make some changes so that he is approached more often than not. He even hired a new agent as he searches for a new team. He might be 31 but his stats are too remarkable to pass for a team. Hopkins has a few more months before the season starts to look through multiple offers and choose what suits him the most.
