After being cut by the Arizona Cardinals in a salary cap move at the end of May, the star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins became an eligible free agent again to join a new NFL team. Amid fans’ ongoing speculation about his potential next destination, the WR remained optimistic and was adamant about inking a deal to match his value given his past track record of performance.

Whatever, Hopkins‘ adamance didn’t go in vain and his signing saga came to an end with the Tennessee Titans. He is set to battle for the AFC South franchise after inking a whopping deal to arguably become their most dangerous wideout upon signing.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network provided a detailed breakdown of the wide receiver’s contract.

“$250,000 for reaching 65 receptions, $500,000 for reaching 75 receptions, $750,000 for reaching 85 receptions, and $1 million for reaching 95 receptions.

$250,000 for reaching 750 receiving yards, $500,000 for reaching 850 receiving yards, $750,000 for reaching 950 receiving yards, and $1 million for reaching 1,050 receiving yards.

$250,000 for reaching four touchdowns, $500,000 for reaching six touchdowns, $750,000 for reaching eight touchdowns, and $1 million for reaching 10 touchdowns,” said the post.

Hence, the veteran star might earn $3M available in incentives each year if he manages to record 95 catches, 1,050 yards as well as 10 touchdowns.
