Cardinals video: Larry Fitzgerald opens up about DeAndre Hopkins
The Arizona Cardinals were fortunate enough to land DeAndre Hopkins via trade this offseason and that’s the exact word Larry Fitzgerald used when he spoke about the move. Among other topics, Fitzgerald opened up about Arizona’s decision to get Hopkins.
At the beginning of free agency, the Cardinals acquired Hopkins from the Houston Texans. After the move took place, Hopkins actually contacted Fitzgerald. When Fitzgerald learned of the addition of Hopkins, he believed it was too good to be true.
As Fitzgerald states in the video, there aren’t many times an All-Pro wide receiver becomes available. Nevertheless, Arizona was lucky that Bill O’Brien is the one pulling the strings in Houston.
With Hopkins joining the Cardinals, he joins Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in a talented receiving corps. It also doesn’t hurt that he’ll be going from Deshaun Watson to Kyler Murray as his quarterback next season.
For Fitzgerald, he signed a one-year deal to remain with the Cardinals for another season. Seeing that he turns 37 years old in August, this could possibly be his last year in the NFL.
Regardless of what he chooses to do, he already has a spot saved in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Besides being a remarkable player on the field, Fitzgerald is also a phenomenal role model. To no one’s surprise, Fitzgerald actually conducted this interview while he was doing some charity work.
But before Fitzgerald calls it quits, he’ll get a chance to play alongside a talented wide receiver like Hopkins. While he wouldn’t comment on where Hopkins ranks among his all-time receiver teammates, Fitzgerald is excited for the opportunity to play with Hopkins.
