Hopkins has been the focus of NFL trade rumors over the last three months, and there has been speculation that he is seeking a raise on his contract. But in a tweet that has since been deleted, the five-time Pro Bowler poured cold water over this rumor.

Back in January, Jordan Schultz of theScore reported that the Cardinals were looking to trade the 2013 first-round pick. The 30-year-old Hopkins is under contract for two more seasons.
A six-game suspension (for violating the NFL’s PEDs policy) and injuries limited Hopkins to nine games last season. He still finished the year with 64 receptions for 717 yards and a trio of touchdown receptions.
The Cardinals acquired Hopkins in a 2020 offseason blockbuster trade with the Houston Texans in a move that predictably turned out to be extremely lopsided in Arizona’s favor. Through three seasons as a Cardinal, Hopkins has 221 receptions for 2,696 yards and 17 touchdowns.
For his career, Hopkins has 853 receptions 11,298 and 71 touchdowns. He has recorded 1,000 yards six timesWANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
