What Does Deandre Hopkins Future Hold in Arizona?
It seems that DeAndre Hopkins, a star receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, did not attend the team's offseason strength and conditioning program and instead chose to work out on his own elsewhere.
The new head coach, Jonathan Gannon, has stated that he has been in communication with Hopkins and wants to do what's best for both him and the team. While Gannon initially expressed excitement about having Hopkins on the team, his tone shifted when asked if he expects to see Hopkins in Arizona this month, saying "We'll see." It remains to be seen whether Hopkins will participate in the team's offseason activities.
Hopkins' first season with the Cardinals was a success, finishing with 1,407 yards and six touchdown catches in 16 games in 2020. Since then, he's played a total of 19 games, dealing with injuries and sitting out due to a suspension related to a violation of the league's performance-enhancing substances policy.
