The Arizona Cardinals plan to trade receiver DeAndre Hopkins during the offseason. It is a strange move since the team still does not have a general manager or a head coach. So Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill must have made this call.
Sources: #AZCardinals plan to try and trade All-Pro WR DeAndre Hopkins this offseason. DHop has 2 yrs and $34.36M left on his contract and is likely to seek a new deal. Owner Michael Bidwill plans to express this to GM candidates.

Hopkins was limited to nine games this year after serving a nine-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, and he also had knee issues. However, he still managed to lead the Cardinals in receiving with 64 catches for 717 yards and three touchdowns.
The receiver has two years and $34.4 million left on his Cardinals contract, and Hopkins could ask for a new deal this offseason. However, Hopkins also has a no-trade clause, meaning he could choose where he wants to play.
In ten seasons, Hopkins has caught 853 passes for 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns. He has six 1,000-yard receiving seasons and caught 100 or more balls for times in his career. Hopkins is a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro.
