DeAndre Hopkins Joins the Tennessee Titans
DeAndre Hopkins is officially a Tennessee Titan. The team announced on Monday that they had signed Hopkins to a two-year, $26 million contract.
Hopkins was released by the Arizona Cardinals earlier this offseason after they were unable to find a trade partner for him. The 31-year-old receiver is still considered to be one of the best in the NFL, and he gives the Titans a major boost at wide receiver.
Hopkins joins a Titans offense that already features A.J. Brown, one of the most explosive receivers in the league. The two receivers should form a dangerous duo for Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Hopkins is also a proven winner. He helped the Houston Texans reach the playoffs in 2016 and 2018, and he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals team that reached the NFC Championship Game in 2022.
The Titans are a team on the rise. They won the AFC South last season and made it to the AFC Divisional Round. With the addition of Hopkins, they are now one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl.
In a statement, Hopkins said, "I'm excited to join the Tennessee Titans and be a part of this great organization. I've heard a lot of great things about the team and the city, and I'm looking forward to getting started."
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said, "We're thrilled to add DeAndre Hopkins to our team. He's one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, and he's a proven winner. We think he's going to be a great addition to our offense."
Hopkins is expected to make his Titans debut in the team's season opener on September 8 against the New York Giants.
In addition to his on-field accomplishments, Hopkins is also a respected leader in the community. He is a co-founder of the Hopscotch Foundation, which provides scholarships and support to students in need.
Hopkins is a major addition to the Tennessee Titans. He is a playmaker on the field and a leader in the community. The Titans are a team on the rise, and Hopkins is the perfect player to help them take the next step.
