DeAndre Hopkins reportedly traded from Texans to Cardinals

The Houston Texans are trading wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

What It Means:

The Cardinals are acquiring Hopkins and a 2020 fourth-round selection from the Houston Texans in exchange for running back David Johnson, a 2020 second-round pick, and a 2021 fourth-rounder. The deal is a boon for Kyler Murray and the Cardinals' offense, though it could limit looks for the likes of Christian Kirk, Andy Isabella, and Larry Fitzgerald. Hopkins is only entering his age-28 season.

Hopkins averaged 14.5 FanDuel points in 15 games last season, sixth-most among all wideouts. He recorded 77.7 yards on 6.9 catches a game with 7 touchdowns. Hopkins' arrival should lead to more shots down the field from Kyler Murray, who was 16th in the NFL in air yards (3,986) as a rookie.
