NFL offseason heating up: Houston Texans trade DeAndre Hopkins
Arguably the most productive offensive player in Houston Texans’ franchise history was just traded away.
NFL free agency is set to begin on Wednesday with teams currently working hard to secure deals with pending free agents across the league hoping to land their clients the best deal possible before the signing flurry arrives later this week.
Before we even arrive at free agency, a massive trade just went through in the NFL as the Texans have traded away star receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals according to multiple reports.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle was the first to report the full details of the trade: Houston has traded Hopkins and a 4th round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to Arizona in exchange for running back David Johnson, a 2nd round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and a 4th round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Hopkins is coming off a year in which he caught 104 passes for 1,165 yards and seven touchdowns. During his NFL carer, Hopkins has 632 catches, 8,602 receiving yards and 54 receiving touchdowns in seven seasons with the Texans.
