The Buffalo Bills certainly need to make a couple of blockbuster moves this offseason if they’re to finally get over the playoff hump in the AFC.
Buffalo entered the 2022 season as the main favorites to win Super Bowl 56, but their season ended in a disappointing home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round. It marked Buffalo’s second straight loss in the Divisional Round, a considerable step back after making a thrilling run to the 2020 AFC Championship Game.
One roster hole that must be addressed: The WR2 position, as the offense has relied too much on the Josh Allen-Stefon Diggs duo.
Over at Bears Wire, Jarrett Bailey proposed an enticing trade scenario that would help the Bills fill that void: By trading for Arizona Cardinals All-Pro wideout DeAndre Hopkins:

“Gabe Davis was a big disappointment in 2022. After what was supposedly his breakout performance against the Chiefs in the divisional round, where he caught four touchdowns, Davis notched only 48 catches on the season, and was very boom or bust. The Bills need a 1B to Stefon Diggs’ 1A. Hopkins has shown that he is still capable of being a top 10 receiver in the game, it just won’t be in Arizona. Pairing him with Josh Allen and Diggs would greatly benefit both Buffalo and Hopkins.”
The soon-to-be 31-year-old Hopkins has been frequently mentioned in trade rumors since the end of the Cardinals’ 2022 season. Though a six-game suspension and injuries limited him to nine games last season, the 2013 first-round pick still racked up 64 receptions for 717 yards and three touchdowns.
Hopkins has crossed the 1,000-yard mark in six of his 10 NFL seasons. He’s been the model of consistency at the position, so it definitely makes sense for a Buffalo team in win-now mode to make a play for him.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
