NFL Rumors: DeAndre Hopkins may opt for trade destination.

ESPN analyst Dan Orlowski predicts which team should make a run at Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Trade talk dominated the NFL Offseason, especially in relation to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the league is waiting to see if he will actually trade with the New York Jets. Another player who has been on the trade block is none other than the team’s wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. It is reported that they have received permission to speak with him and his agents at the Arizona Cardinals. So the question that remains is which team will add him to its roster for the 2023 season?

On the April 5 episode of “NFL on ESPN,” analysts were asked who they think Hopkins should run. Dan Orlovsky, a former NFL quarterback, believes this NFL team should add him to a pretty stacked wide receiver depth chart.

That group: Los Angeles Chargers.

ESPN analyst Dan Orlowski believes the Chargers should trade for DeAndre Hopkins.

Quarterbacks Justin Herbert Hopkins, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to target downfield? That would be the best three at this position, and would definitely help them compete in what is a tough AFC. Not to mention trying to take the AFC West crown from the rival Kansas City Chiefs, which they haven’t done in the past seven seasons.

Last season, the Chargers averaged 281.8 receiving yards, fourth-highest in the entire league.

The thing with Hopkins is that he’s dealt with injuries the last two years. In the year In 2021, he missed seven games with a hamstring strain and a torn MCL. Combined with missing the first six games last season due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, he missed the last two games at Arizona with a strained knee.

In the year In 2021, Hopkins caught 42-of-64 pass attempts for 572 yards and eight touchdowns. This past season, Hopkins recorded 64 receptions for 717 yards and three touchdowns on 96 targets.

The Chargers will be the landing spot for Hopkins. But, it is only a prediction from Orlovsky.
