An AFC club has emerged as the heavy odds-on favorites to sign free agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
It’s been nearly two months since the Arizona Cardinals released the five-time Pro Bowl wideout from his contract. As a result of his release, the Cardinals are taking on a massive $22.6 million dead cap it for 2023.
The 31-year-old has already visited with the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots. But nearly two months after his release from the Cardinals, the superstar wideout surprisingly remains unsigned as training camp draws closer.
DraftKings gives New England the third-best odds of landing the perennial Pro Bowler at +275, followed by the Buffalo Bills at +1500. The reigning AFC East champs are said to have interest in Hopkins, but only if the price is right for them.
The Cardinals traded for Hopkins in a 2020 offseason blockbuster move with the Houston Texans. He was set to enter the final season of his contract with the Cardinals before they decided to release him.
Although he was limited to nine games last season, Hopkins still finished with 64 receptions for 717 yards and three touchdowns. For his career, “Nuk” has 853 receptions, 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns.
