5 teams who could call the Arizona Cardinals for DeAndre Hopkins
1 - Dallas Cowboys
With so much uncertainty regarding the Cowboys with the likes of Tony Pollard, Dalton Schultz, and Noah Brown becoming potential free agents, the door has opened for potential trade talks with the Arizona Cardinals. While Dallas may re-sign all three of the above names, they’re still lacking that one player capable of getting them to the NFC Championship Game.
Trading a first round pick for Hopkins would allow him to step right into the lineup and play on the same offense as CeeDee Lamb. And that could make for a dangerous duo in Dallas.
2 - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo’s situation is much like the one the Cowboys are facing. They are missing just one puzzle piece on offense to get them back to the AFC Championship, and Hopkins could slide right in opposite of Stefon Diggs to create a lethal one-two combo in the Queen City.
Also like the Cowboys, the Bills could give the Arizona Cardinals a first round pick in exchange for Hopkins’ services. For Monti Ossenfort, such a trade would be a no-brainer.
