Two teams are reported to be frontrunners in the race for DeAndre Hopkins following his release from the Arizona Cardinals last week.
Hopkins has emerged as the top name on the free agent market and has outlined what he’s looking for from his next team. The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs both happen to fit the description, which you could check out here. And, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, those very teams are in an “arm’s race” for the star wide receiver.
The Chiefs, in particular, might not pursue Hopkins as aggressively as they believe in Kadaius Toney. And, per Fowler, neither team is desperate to sign the former Cardinals wideout, though they are concerned about him ending up with a rival.
Surely, Hopkins must have emerged as a target for several other organizations. He is one of the best pass-catchers in the league and could help any team win as long as he remains available for the long haul.
Hopkins was released by the Cardinals last Friday after a long-drawn-out saga that was expected to end with a trade despite both the GM and head coach indicating he would stay put. The team opted to release him instead after facing difficulty finding a trade partner.
