Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins is available for all teams to trade for, but so far no team has been able to strike a deal. At 30 years old, DeAndre Hopkins may become available very soon. It is no secret that the Arizona Cardinals have been shopping him for some time now but nobody has been willing to take on his massive contract.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Hopkins himself may prefer to come to sunny Los Angeles and catch passes from Justin Herbert.
During NFL Live on Wednesday, ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky said the Los Angeles Chargers could make a move for the Pro Bowl wide receiver after the completion of the NFL Draft.
“They got a really good roster and if they go into a draft wanting a receiver or two, and don’t get them. I match DeAndre Hopkins with Mike Williams and Keenan [Allen]. Now we’re talking about the ability to push the ball downfield.”

Hopkins was one of the Cardinals’ lone bright spots in a season where their quarterback, Kyler Murray, tore his ACL at the end of the year and multiple coaches got fired. Hopkins joined the squad after missing the first six games of 2022 and recorded 717 yards on 64 catches and three touchdowns.
The 30-year-old Hopkins has two years left on his deal with no guaranteed money remaining. When healthy, he’s still one of the best wideouts in the NFL.
The Chargers themselves are in their own rough cap situation and wouldn’t be able to trade for that contract. However, Hopkins just might want to restructure his deal to make things work.
The focus of everyone in the Chargers building right now is the Jaguars and getting past them to reach the Divisional Round after they blew a huge lead. having a guy like Hopkins could’ve likely stopped the bleeding and kept their offense on the field longer.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
