Could a potential extension for DeAndre Hopkins or Chandler Jones be coming soon?

The Arizona Cardinals created over $7 million in cap space by converting D.J. Humphries $10.59 million base salary into a signing bonus, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

According to Spotrac, the Cardinals now have a little over $9.83 million in cap space.

With this new found money for the 2020 season, the Cardinals are in a better position to offer extensions to their two All-Pros in wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and linebacker Chandler Jones.

As Yates mentioned, it gives the Cardinals plenty of flexibility to add players throughout the season in case of any injuries or to improve their overall depth as they round out their 53-man roster.

Do not expect the Cardinals to pursue Jadeveon Clowney or Leonard Fournette.
