EAGLES SAID NO TO DEANDRE HOPKINS: NOT WORTH $18M-$20M PER!

By Harvey Hoffman

The Cardinals landed one of the best wide receivers in the NFL when they got DeAndre Hopkins from the Texans. But the Cardinals weren’t the only team involved in trade talks surrounding Hopkins.

The Eagles also talked to the Texans but decided against trading for Hopkins, based both on what the Texans were asking for and what Hopkins wanted in a new contract — $18 million minimum per year — ESPN’s Adam Schefter said today on 97.5 The Fanatic.

Houston got running back David Johnson (who was a candidate to get cut by the Cardinals), plus a second-round draft pick and an exchange of fourth-round picks. It’s surprising that the Cardinals only had to give that up for Hopkins — and surprising that the Eagles and other teams didn’t offer the Texans more to secure Hopkins’ services.
