Mack Wilson is trying to form a super team in New England, especially on offense to help Mac Jones.

After the Patriots signed JuJu Smith-Schuster, Wilson has been campaigning for Jerry Jeudy and DeAndre Hopkins to join his team. Wilson and Jeudy played together at the University of Alabama in 2017 and 2018, helping the program to a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2017.

The Patriots would land a talented receiver in Jerry; however, getting Hopkins would be a next-level move. As a former first-round pick of the 2013 NFL Draft from Clemson University, Hopkins is a three-time first-team NFL All-Pro receiver (2017-19).

He’s made five Pro Bowls and led the National Football League for touchdown catches (13) in 2017 with the Houston Texans.

Hopkins had four 1,000+ yard seasons in seven years with the Texans before getting traded to the Arizona Cardinals on March 16, 2020. He enjoyed 1,407 receiving yards and six touchdowns with the Cardinals in 2020, but he did not reach 1,000 yards in each of the last two years. Hopkins dealt with a hamstring injury and a torn medial collateral ligament (MCL) in 2021. He served a suspension in 2022 for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. Hopkins is one of the league’s best receivers when he is healthy. If Wilson can pull him to New England, Jones will have a dynamic weapon for a No. 1 option.
