Report: Bills among teams interested in trading for Hopkins
The Buffalo Bills are among the teams interested in trading for Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, reports Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston.
Multiple teams have reportedly been looking into potentially making a move for the five-time Pro Bowler, including the New England Patriots.
The Cardinals apparently made Hopkins available this offseason. The 30-year-old has two years and $34.36 million left on his current deal. He's set to earn $19.45 million in base salary and carries a $30.75-million cap hit for the 2023 season, per Spotrac.
Buffalo made wide receiver one of its priorities this year. The Bills roster All-Pro pass-catcher Stefon Diggs, but the rest of their wideout depth chart currently features Gabe Davis and Khalil Shakir, among others. Davis was considered a potential breakout candidate entering the 2022 season but struggled with drops, finishing the campaign with 836 yards (17.4 per catch) and seven touchdowns.
Hopkins didn't make the Pro Bowl in each of the last two seasons as injuries have forced him to miss 15 games since 2021. He caught 64 passes for 717 yards and three touchdowns in nine appearances last year.
The Clemson product has amassed 2,696 yards and 17 touchdowns on 221 receptions since joining Arizona via a trade from the Houston Texans in 2020.
