Murray and Hopkins having a full offseason together

Arizona fans were dancing for joy back in March of 2020 when it was announced that the sensational DeAndre Hopkins was acquired in a trade.

All of the celebrating was tempered a bit, however, by the COVID-19 pandemic that hit the world at just about the same time. Much to their credit, the league succeeded in serving up a full and complete schedule, despite the difficult obstacles that had to be overcome.

Even a substantially watered-down offseason could not prevent Kyler Murray and Hopkins from becoming one of the most lethal quarterback-wide receiver tandems in professional football. Despite a limited amount of practice time, Murray and Hopkins still managed to connect 111 times for 1,372 yards and six touchdowns. This year, the duo spent much more time getting on the same page, so Cards fans can only imagine the enormous possibilities that lie ahead for the pair in 2021.
