The marketplace for DeAndre Hopkins ought to quickly take form, however it appears like workforce executives are cut up on how a lot the star broad receiver nonetheless has to supply.
Albert Breer of The MMQB requested a few team executives for their opinions on Hopkins. One exec supplied a blunt evaluation of what he feels Hopkins has left within the tank after 10 seasons.
“Not a lot. He can’t run anymore,” the exec advised Breer.
That was not the consensus, nonetheless. One different govt described Hopkins as “nonetheless a risk” and stated the 30-year-old is able to profitable on balls within the air. A 3rd exec supplied a blended opinion on Hopkins and shared some character issues.
“Nonetheless nice fingers, he’s not going to separate, not a lot of a deep risk, however very robust, and makes contested catches in addition to anybody within the NFL,” the AFC govt stated. “Doesn’t like to apply — I can’t think about that’ll get any higher. And when issues don’t go nicely, you’re all the time gonna be leery, All proper, what sort of drama are we gonna get from this man? When issues are nice, he’s nice. When issues go south, his true colours present a bit bit.”
It’s secure to imagine most coaches and executives consider Hopkins’ greatest days are behind him. That’s the reason the Arizona Cardinals couldn’t discover anybody keen to tackle Hopkins’ contract in a commerce.
Hopkins will probably prioritize signing with a contender, and we all know of two that have interest in him. The five-time Professional Bowl choice could also be at his greatest in a scenario the place he doesn’t should be a real No. 1 broad receiver, although he might have to just accept a contract that displays that.
