The entire NFL was stunned Friday when the Arizona Cardinals released five-time All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.


The Cardinals had been trying for months to trade Hopkins, but when they didn’t find a deal they chose to … get nothing in return.

What? Not even a draft pick?

Shaking my head.

Cardinals might be doing more than that, like their fists or middle fingers.

The Cardinals take a $21 million dead cap hit for 2023 and will shed his salary in 2024 to gain extra cap space, but, man, to let the 30-year-old (31 on June 6) go for zilch is crazy.

Sure Hopkins is slowing down, but, when healthy, he’s still productive.

Last season, Hopkins had 64 receptions (11.2 yards per catch), for 717 yards and three touchdowns.

Now he’s a free agent and he’ll have plenty of suitors.

Hopkins is well-respected around the league and he took the high road upon the release by tweeting his love for the Cardinals.

So the question now is, who’s gonna sign him?

Let’s look at his odds, ones I’m using courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook, one of our favorite sites, along with many other great gambling companies in the U.S., including FanDuel Sportsbook, BetMGM and more.

Buffalo Bills +250

Kansas City Chiefs +400

New York Jets +550

Baltimore Ravens +650

New England Patriots +800

Los Angeles Chargers +1000

Detroit Lions +1500

Philadelphia Eagles +2000

Buffalo is the clear favorite for two big reasons: Hopkins and Bills star Von Miller are buds and claims Hopkins told him he wants to be in Buffalo. Even more telling, on Brandon Marshall’s podcast “I Am Athlete” Hopkins was asked which five quarterbacks he’d like to catch passes from, and his top choice was Josh Allen.

The other four? Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Justin Herbert.

But take a look at who’s not on that list: Aaron Rodgers.

And yet, they’re the third betting choice.

The Jets are in win-now mode and Rodgers will certainly reach out to Hopkins to convince him to join him in New York for a chance to win a Super Bowl this next season.

Others believe Hopkins will choose the Chiefs, and who in the world wouldn’t want to catch passes from Mahomes and join the defending Super Bowl champions?

But the dark horse is the Eagles.

I’m already on the record saying Philadelphia will win next year’s Super Bowl following an awesome NFL Draft last month and adding Hopkins would only convince me more.

With those generous odds, put a little money on Hopkins relocating to the City of Brotherly Love and you can thank me later.
