There won’t be many big-name wide receivers on the market at the end of the season, but one high-profile WR could possibly be on the move.
According to the Twitter account, NFL Rumors, DeAndre Hopkins could become available in the offseason, with the Arizona Cardinals said to be keen on getting rid of some contracts.
The Cardinals are 4-11 this season after getting blown out in the playoffs last term, on the back of a very positive regular season, and might be looking to overhaul in 2023.

The team is reportedly poised to let general manager Steve Keim go while Kliff Kingsbury’s future is still unclear.
At 30, Hopkins doesn’t have many years left at the top and might have some decisions to make. The receiver is due $19.5 million in base salary next year, which is not all that significant when compared to some of the contracts handed to other high-end WRs in the NFL, so he would be considered a steal if he ends up elsewhere.
The Cardinals stand to benefit from a trade too as they’d have the aforementioned sum in savings plus $11.3 million in dead money.
With the player set to be 31 in June, the trade compensation could be lower than the first and second-round picks the Las Vegas Raiders gave up for Davante Adams, who just might become available too, given the situation involving Derek Carr.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
