NFL Trade Rumor: Ex-Cardinal free agent DeAndre Hopkins hints possible ‘Big Apple’ move in the midst of Patrick Mahomes speculations

The former Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers, the Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson, and the Arizona Cardinals DeAndre Hopkins were constantly setting buzz in the NFL world due to their uncertainty in their respective teams. While Aaron found his new destination in the New York Jets and Jackson decided to stay with his team by signing a blockbuster trade, Hopkins’ fate is still hanging in the air.

The Cardinals star found himself in the free market after getting released from the team due to not finding a potential suitor for him and since then, multiple teams are rallying to include the young star in the roster.

Hopkins hints possible move to New York Jets

The five-time Pro Bowler shared an enigmatic Instagram story to add another layer of excitement to the NFL offseason where he added a photo of a television screen in his gym, with the New York Jets logo displayed in the bottom left corner.

While there is no concrete evidence linking the 30-year-old and New York in any potential deal or collaboration, D-Hop’s sudden sharing of the Jets’ photo, intentional or unintentional, has sparked intriguing theories among football enthusiasts.

Fans are speculating it as a hint for the next home of the veteran star.

Can Mahomes recruit DeAndre Hopkins to the Chiefs?

Hopkins is widely regarded as one of the best receivers in the NFL and had a productive stint in Arizona forming himself as a formidable force on the field, hence, teams eyeing him is not surprising at all.

The free-agent market is highly competitive, and several teams would undoubtedly be interested in securing the services of one of the league’s premier wide receivers and Josh Allen’s Buffalo Bills were one of them. The Bills are yet to hold any Lombardi trophy, and D-Hops’ caliber could provide a much-needed boost to their offenses.

The future NFL GOAT Patrick Mahomes Kansas City Chiefs have also been frequently mentioned in connection with the ex-Cardinals following losing their two stats JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman in the free agent market, albeit, the Chiefs might need to make some major adjustments to include him in their roster following their limited cap space.

However, despite arguably being the best quarterback in the NFL right now, Mahomes is not charging the highest amount in his salary to provide the Chiefs with the flexibility to keep veteran troops enrolled in the team, hence, Hopkins might be seen to join the wide receiver corps in Kansas City alongside Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson.

Besides, the Bills and the Chiefs, the three-time All-Pro wide receiver has also caught the attention of the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, and Dallas Cowboys.

Which team do you think Hopkins can end up with? Will he join the four-time MVP in the Jets or the two-time MVP in the Chiefs?
