Huge news has broken in the National Football League.
DeAndre Hopkins, one of the best wide receivers in the league, has been released by the Arizona Cardinals. As a five-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All-Pro honoree, the 30-year-old is a six-time 1,000+ yard receiver. Hopkins got selected at No. 27 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. After time with the Houston Texans and Cardinals, where does Hopkins go next?

He has mentioned a few quarterbacks, including Jalen Hurts, that he would love to catch passes from.
On a recent appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast, free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins listed the five QBs he’d most like to catch passes from: the Bills’ Josh Allen, the Eagles’ Jalen Hurts, the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, the Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and the Chargers’ Justin Herbert.

The Philadelphia Eagles have DeVonta Smith, A.J. Brown, Quez Watkins, and talented tight ends, but would the organization be aggressive enough to get Hopkins for Hurts? It will be interesting, especially after watching Hurts lead the Eagles to the Super Bowl in his third season with the team. The New England Patriots would be a nice spot for Hopkins as Mac Jones needs a No. 1 option to throw to, but Hopkins did not mention Jones as someone he wants to catch passes from.

We will see who Hopkins signs with, but teaming up with Hurts is an option.
