The Lions went 9-8 last season, marking their first winning season since 2017. With Aaron Rodgers now out of the division, the NFC North is up for grabs and wide open.
2022 first-round pick Jameson Williams was suspended for the first six games of the season for gambling, so there is a void at wide receiver. Third-year wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown and veteran Marvin Jones Jr. are the lead WRs on Detroit’s roster.
But adding Hopkins to an offense consisting of Williams, St. Brown, Jones Jr. and the dynamic running back duo of David Montgomery and rookie Jahmyr Gibbs would go a long way in helping Detroit’s chances of winning the NFC North.
Despite being limited to nine games last season, Hopkins racked up 64 receptions for 717 yards and a trio of touchdowns. For his career, Hopkins has 853 receptions for 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
