D-HOP IS AVAILABLE
Former Houston Texans' star receiver is on the move
Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been rumored to be traded throughout the offseason, but we finally got some resolution on Friday.
Hopkins has one of the biggest receiver contracts in the NFL, and Arizona was unable to find a trade partner that was willing to take on his monster deal.
So DeAndre Hopkins has been released and now becomes a free agent.
This is not a post-June 1 designation. Arizona takes the entire $22.6M dead cap hit this season. https://t.co/8Qdxy9127K

Hopkins is rumored to be open to joining the Cowboys, Bills, and Chiefs. Even the Patriots are reported to have interest in D-Hop, which would have him working again with now Patriots OC and former Texans head coach, Bill O'Brien.
It's hard to believe Hopkins would have any interest in heading to New England, but you never know.
What about the Texans? As much as the Texans could use some more talent at receiver, we can't imagine Hopkins would have interest in joining a rebuilding team like Houston. Hopkins missed two games to injury last year and served a 6-game suspension for PEDs.
Hopkins, who will be 31 years old when the season begins, played in 9 total games last year and recorded 717 receiving yards with 3 TDs on 64 catches.
