However, it is important to note that this outcome is primarily influenced by Hopkins’ existing contract rather than a lack of interest from other teams.

5 Potential Landing Spots for DeAndre Hopkins

With the WR now on the market, numerous teams are undoubtedly interested in acquiring his services. However, the question remains: which destinations would be the most logical choices for him to land?

Let’s explore five potential landing spots for DeAndre Hopkins.

1- Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills present a logical landing spot for the wide receiver. DeAndre has expressed his desire to play for the Bills and has praised their quarterback, Josh Allen.

If Hopkins joins Stefon Diggs, they will surely make the best wide receiver duo, ultimately increasing the chances of the team’s success. 

2- Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers traded D.J. Moore, their star wide receiver to acquire the No. 1 overall pick and select Bryce Young as their quarterback of the future.

With a proactive approach to acquiring offensive weapons, adding the newly released star WR would further strengthen their supporting cast and enhance their prospects of success.

3- New England Patriots

The New England Patriots need a top wide receiver for a long time. While they added JuJu Smith-Schuster in free agency, the departure of Jakobi Meyers leaves room for improvement.

Although securing DeAndre may have hurdles due to his history with Bill O’Brien, the Patriots’ desire for a premier wide receiver remains apparent.

4- Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions face early-season adversity with wide receiver Jameson Williams suspended for gambling violations.

Adding Hopkins to their wide receiver group would provide valuable experience alongside Amon-Ra St. Brown and Marvin Jones Jr., strengthening their chances of capturing the division crown.

5- Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles boast a formidable wide receiver duo in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. However, depth beyond these two is lacking. Signing DeAndre Hopkins would solidify the No. 3 receiver role and elevate the Eagles’ offensive potential, especially considering his interest in playing alongside Jalen Hurts.
