Hopkins has been spectacular in his last three seasons while with the Houston Texans. The Arizona Cardinals hope that he can continue these impressive numbers with second year quarterback Kyler Murray tossing the rock.
The Cardinals and WR DeAndre Hopkins have agreed to an extension that will make him the 4th-highest paid receiver in AAV over the next five seasons ($18.8M).
