Arizona Cardinals get blockbuster deal done to acquire DeAndre Hopkins from Houston Texans

NFL: Super Bowl LIV-NFL Honors Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Well, Steve Keim is certainly going all in with Kyler Murray’s rookie contract.

According to Adam Schefter the Arizona Cardinals are trading for All Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

The Cardinals packaged David Johnson and at least the #40 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to acquire one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.

As this updates you still feel really good about the Cardinals end of the deal.

Hopkins is a soon to be 28 year old three time All Pro wide receiver that has three years left on his current contract, with salary hits of $12.5 million, $13.5 million and $13.915 million over the next three seasons.

He is looking for an extension, something the Cardinals are definitely aware of.

Hopkins numbers the last three seasons where he has been an All Pro:

2017 - 96 catches 1,378 yards 13 touchdowns
2018 - 115 catches 1,572 yards 11 touchdowns
2019 - 104 catches 1,165 yards 7 touchdowns

This is a huge coup for the Cardinals and Steve Keim.
