Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer writes interest in DeAndre Hopkins is “very tepid from teams” and that he may have to choose between “tak[ing] the bag” and “chase a ring.”
The Chiefs and Bills don’t want to pay Hopkins’ current asking price and the sense is that Odell Beckham’s contract earlier this offseason drove Hopkins’ market into a range where neither felt comfortable executing a trade.
Hopkins may have to choose between a one-year, mid-range deal in a JuJu Smith-Schuster sort of way or making real money for a team that doesn’t have one of the preferred quarterbacks on his list.
Breer surveyed evaluators and found a divide on what Hopkins had left, with one anonymous executive saying “He can’t run anymore.”
