NFL: DeAndre Hopkins has been on of the most talked about free agents during the 2023 off-season. The Arizona Cardinals released the All-Pro wide receiver earlier this off-season. The New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans were the front-runners to sign Hopkins this off-season. The veteran wide receiver has visited both organizations and even left Nashville with a contract offer. As it turns out, that contract offer was exactly what he was looking for.
DeAndre Hopkins Signs With The Tennessee Titans (NFL)
Former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is signing with the Tennessee Titans, according to Doug Kyed with the deal expected to become official over the next few days. The move caps a long offseason full of trade drama with Hopkins and the Cardinals before he was ultimately released prior to June 1, which cleared Arizona of any of his cap liability for 2024.
Hopkins arrives to a Titans squad that reportedly made a strong offer to him once he hit free agency. Tennessee was one of two teams to physically host Hopkins on a visit, the other being the New England Patriots.
NFL Fans React To The DeAndre Hopkins Signing
While the Titans were one of the front-runners all off-season, many thought DeAndre Hopkins could have been waiting for another team to enter the mix. A contender, at that. The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs were two rumored teams that Hopkins hoped would get involved. When the news of his signing surfaced, fans exploded on social media:
