Five Potential Trade Destinations for DeAndre Hopkins

The Cardinals are reportedly shopping DeAndre Hopkins this offseason, as first reported by Jordan Schultz of theScore. This comes just a day after their firing of previous head coach Kliff Kingsbury and the resignation of general manager Steve Keim. Seems the Cardinals are ready for change and want to depart ways with the five-time Pro Bowler. Let’s explore some DeAndre Hopkins trade destinations.

Green Bay

Green Bay could make a desperation move to keep Aaron Rodgers just one more year after what seems like his final season in the league. This team has not had a lead wide receiver, besides the four-game streak with Christian Watson where he accumulated 362 yards and eight touchdowns, all season — a very apparent and drastic result of the team trading Davante Adams.

Therefore, the Packers top this list of trade destinations for Hopkins as it would make sense for them to pair him with Rodgers for a “Last Dance” season. Green Bay is also notorious for their drafting of receivers, so this falls right in line with their previous moves.


Cleveland could do what no one would imagine, a reunion between Hopkins and Deshaun Watson on a better and fuller offense. While Hopkins and Watson were previously having Pro Bowl careers for the Houston Texas, that organization seemingly blindsided him and traded Hopkins in 2020.

Now that Watson is in Cleveland, it almost makes too much sense for them to acquire Hopkins. They have a previous connection, and the move would boost the passing game of the Browns, making it almost impossible for opposing defenses to defend both the run and pass. That previous connection between the two could be exactly what the Browns need as Watson looked very rusty this season.

It’s a win-win situation really; help your quarterback return to previous form, while acquiring a deep threat to match Amari Cooper‘s route running. That offense can be exponentially elevated with this move.

Kansas City

As much as they don’t need the help, Hopkins to the Chiefs just seems like a perfect fit for the team. They no longer have a WR1 with Tyreek Hill, their previous deep threat, and could get Hopkins to pair with Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

This offense is already at an elite level, and anyone can thrive in it, but the missing piece seems to be perfectly met with a potential for Hopkins. It makes too much sense and is scary for the rest of the league if made true. A connection between Patrick Mahomes and Hopkins could be devastating.

However, if the Chiefs were to win the title and bring back the Lombardi Trophy, there should be no reason for them to bring him in.


Chicago is almost in the best position of any team in the league this offseason. Having $100 million in cap space and the first overall pick of the 2023 draft, they can do some damage. That damage could include trading for Hopkins.

The Bears have found what seems to be their future franchise quarterback in Justin Fields after his play this season, so a move for a solidified WR1 does not seem too farfetched.

Chicago mistakenly overpaid for Chase Claypool to help buff up their receiving core and haven’t gotten much back. However, getting a deal done with Hopkins just might help bring them back after that horrible mistake. The stars have almost perfectly aligned for a Hopkins trade as they have the cap space and draft capital to complete it.


Jerry Jones would be having the time of his life, finding a 30-year-old wide receiver past his prime that would look good with a star seems to be his latest motto and that applies here. After plans of getting Odell Beckham Jr. fell through, they resorted to getting previous Colt, T.Y. Hilton.

Although he has made a few plays with the Cowboys and has seemed to be a worthwhile, cheap pickup, a potential move for Hopkins doesn’t seem out of the picture. With the rise of the overly dominant Eagles this year, the Cowboys need just one more thing to set the edge and keep up with their division rivals.

It shouldn’t be a surprise for DeAndre Hopkins to look good in a star, as it has the potential to come true.
