Ever since his shocking release from the Arizona Cardinals, DeAndre Hopkins has become the most popular player in the NFL. Everyone is wondering where the talented wide receiver will end up next, and if you ask star center Jason Kelce, it sounds like he thinks his brother Travis Kelce‘s team in the Kansas City Chiefs are the best fit for Hopkins.
The Chiefs certainly could use more firepower at wide receiver after losing JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman in free agency, and not to mention, they have arguably the best quarterback in the league in Patrick Mahomes. While Jason would obviously like Hopkins to end up with the Philadelphia Eagles, he explains that he believes the Chiefs make the most sense for Hopkins as his next destination.
“Of all those teams, I think the Chiefs might be the best fit [for him]. He’s a really good receiver. I don’t know how much space you guys got, but I think that would work out really well. The Eagles – I mean, we’ll take him! We’ll gladly take him.. but that’s gonna be a lot of receivers needing yards in the receivers room.” – Jason Kelce, New Heights Presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment
The Eagles are well-stocked at the receiver position, so it makes sense that Kelce would be vocal in his support for his brother's team if his team is unable to land Hopkins. Either way, the Chiefs are viewed as one of the top suitors for Hopkins, and according to the Jason Kelce, his best fit may just be in Kansas City alongside his brother Travis Kelce.
