Meeting with Tennessee this weekend

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-06-07

Hopkins is scheduled to fly to Nashville on Sunday for a visit with the Titans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Pelissero added that the Titans aren't the only team speaking with Hopkins, who was released by the Cardinals at the end of May, but the wideout's impending visit shows the two sides have mutual interest. Hopkins and Titans head coach Mike Vrabel were together in Houston for a few years, but Vrabel was a linebacker coach and then a defensive coordinator, so they weren't working directly with each other every day. The five-time Pro Bowler has also publicly been connected with the Browns, Patriots, Bills, Chiefs and Giants.

Released by Cardinals

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-26

The Cardinals released Hopkins on Friday.

A suspension and knee injury limited Hopkins to nine appearances last season, but his per-game numbers -- 7.1 catches for 79.7 yards and 0.33 TDs -- remained prolific. He now becomes a free agent two weeks before his 31st birthday and is instantly the top player on the post-draft market at any position. Prior to his release, Hopkins was scheduled for a non-guaranteed $19.45 million salary in 2023 and $14.92 million in 2024.

Not at voluntary OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-22

Hopkins isn't at voluntary OTAs but has been talking to teammates and working out with private trainers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Hopkins was oft-mentioned in trade rumors earlier this spring, before he posted an Instagram story May 1 (on the heels of the NFL Draft) suggesting he didn't want to leave. He sounds more open to a trade in a recent interview with the I AM ATHLETE podcast, though he also said he thinks the Cardinals are "in good hands" with new GM Monti Ossenfort. While the soon-to-be 31-year-old wideout might seem an odd fit on a team many consider to be rebuilding under a new front office and new coaching staff, Hopkins seems to think the Cardinals have enough veteran talent to be competitive. Still, it won't be shocking if he's traded at some point this spring or summer, nor will it come as any surprise if the Cards struggle through another lackluster campaign.

Draft trade not anticipated by GM

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-28

GM Monti Ossenfort indicated that he doesn't expect the Cardinals to trade Hopkins during the NFL Draft, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN reports.

When asked if the veteran wideout might be on the move as the draft progresses, Ossenfort noted Thursday, "I don't foresee that happening," adding "DeAndre's a Cardinal...and we're moving forward." That said, considering Hopkins' looming $30.75 million salary cap hit in 2023, it's possible that offseason trade speculation regarding the 30-year-old could linger after the draft is over. For now, however, Hopkins sits atop an Arizona WR depth chart that also includes Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore. In nine games with the Cards last season, Hopkins recorded a 64/717/3 receiving line.

Not at voluntary workouts

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-11

Hopkins wasn't present for the start of Arizona's voluntary workout program Tuesday, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website.

With two years left on his deal, Hopkins has already been granted permission to seek a trade, though there's been zero traction on that front. When asked if Hopkins will show up to Arizona, new coach Jonathan Gannon replied, "We'll see." Hopkins has been working out on his own and is currently in Texas. Turning 31 this summer, Hopkins has no desire to be part of the Cardinals' rebuild, especially with Kyler Murray (knee) unlikely to be ready for the start of the season.

Has permission to seek trade

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-27

The Cardinals have granted permission to Hopkins' (knee) representatives to discuss trades with other teams, Albert Breer of reports.

After missing just two games in the first eight years of his career, Hopkins has been absent for 15 games the past two seasons due to a combination of injuries and a suspension. He's still produced when on the field, though, totaling 106 catches (on 160 targets) for 1,289 yards and 11 touchdowns in 19 appearances during that span. Despite Breer's report, new coach Jonathan Gannon told Steve Wyche of NFL Network at the Annual League Meeting on Sunday that he's "operating that he's a Cardinal right now" when asked about Hopkins. Hopkins' situation may continue to linger due to his 2023 base salary of $19.45 million, his age (he turns 31 in June) and his recent inability to be available to Arizona's offense.

Out for Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-04

Hopkins (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the 49ers, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

The 30-year-old wideout missed the first six games of the season due to a suspension and will wind up sitting out the final two with a knee injury. In between, he averaged 7.1 catches for 79.7 yards on 10.7 targets with three touchdowns in nine games, essentially providing his usual level of fantasy production until things fell apart Week 16, when third-string quarterback Trace McSorley completed only one of his 10 throws to Hopkins in what ended up being the wideout's final appearance of the season. Hopkins is signed through 2024, but he could be the subject of trade rumors this offseason with a non-guaranteed $19.45 million salary looming in 2023. Even if he stays in Arizona, there's plenty of uncertainty for his outlook with head coach Kliff Kingsbury a candidate to be fired and franchise signal-caller Kyler Murray (knee) recovering from a surgery that could put his availability for Week 1 of next season in doubt.

Not playing Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2022-12-31

Hopkins (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Considering Hopkins left Friday's practice early, it certainly appeared as if the knee injury was relatively serious and Saturday's designation confirms the notion. It's entirely possible Hopkins could be shut down for the rest of the season considering Week 18 means nothing in terms of the Cardinals' playoff hopes, but the team has yet to make anything official in that regard. Marquise Brown and Greg Dortch figure to get more opportunities with Hopkins out, although the prospect of third-stringer David Blough throwing the duo the ball might be an unenviable situation for fantasy managers.

Questionable with knee injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2022-12-30

Hopkins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Tyler Drake of reports.

Potential shadow coverage from Falcons CB A.J. Terrell is the least of Hopkins' problems with David Blough set to start at QB for the Cardinals and their star wideout now considered questionable. Hopkins left Friday's practice early -- early enough to be considered a non-participant rather than limited -- and thus appears truly in danger of landing on the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. A Hopkins absence would boost the volume projections for WRs Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch and A.J. Green, plus TE Trey McBride.
