Arizona Cardinals make shocking decision regarding WR DeAndre Hopkins

The burden of a weighty $21 million dead salary cap hit looms over the Cardinals’ coffers for the 2023 season. However, hope resides in the fact that this financial millstone will eventually be lifted from their books. The option of designating him a June 1 cut presents itself as a viable strategy, enabling the team to distribute the blow evenly across the current and upcoming seasons, should they opt for such a path.

Throughout this tumultuous affair, Hopkins maintained a conspicuous silence regarding his desire to depart from Arizona. Yet, in equal measure, he refrained from expressing an explicit commitment to remain with the Cardinals. On numerous occasions during national interviews, he flirted with the notion of engaging with other teams or entertaining the thought of sharing the field with different quarterbacks who piqued his interest.

In recent days, a question was posed to Hopkins, one that sought to uncover the attributes he sought in a prospective team.

“What I want is stable management upstairs, that’s something I haven’t really had the past couple years of my career coming from Houston and then to Arizona,” Hopkins said. “A QB who loves the game, a QB who brings everybody on board with him, not just himself but everybody around him … and a great defense. A great defense wins championships.”
