The Arizona Cardinals’ trade return for DeAndre Hopkins could be low
The Arizona Cardinals are rumored to be looking at options to move on from wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The Cardinals would prefer to trade Hopkins to recoup some value for the 30-year-old All-Pro athlete. However, the Cardinals could release Hopkins to save on cap space this offseason. Former Cardinals general manager Steve Keim recently weighed in on Hopkins’ trade value.
According to Arizona Sports, Keim said Hopkins’ contract is holding up trade talks, and it’s driving his value down:
“They’re probably going to have to come to understand that they’re probably not going to get as much as they would if he was a younger player or his contract was considerably lower, where you could get him for a second-round (pick),” Keim said. “It could end up being a second- or third-day draft pick to really get it done. Probably (need to) get a new deal done.”
The Cardinals must decide if saving the cap space with a post-June 1st cut is worth a third-day draft pick.
