Hopkins really sent everybody into a spiral and stole the attention of social media on a day that was taken over by the NFL after they essentially gave more flexibility to vaccinated players.
It’s good news that Hopkins isn’t planning on hanging it up anytime soon. One of the best talents in the game certainly has not lost a step. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Houston texans before being traded to the Cardinals.
In 2020– his first season with the Cardinals– Hopkins had 115 catches for 1407 yards and six scores and developed quite the relationship with Kyler Murray. His former Texans teammate JJ Watt also made his way to Arizona, and the Cardinals have a lot of people excited headed into 2021.
Don’t worry, Hopkins isn’t going anywhere.
