The Buffalo Bills have been mostly quiet throughout the offseason, at least when it comes to the front office and making moves.
But star LB Von Miller has done plenty of talking, and he’s made sure to do his part to recruit top-notch talents to join him upstate.
So, it wasn’t shocking to see him publicly and openly discuss DeAndre Hopkins’ situation, going as far as to say that he knows he wants to play for the Bills.
"That'll put us over the top … We know he wants to be a Buffalo Bill."

Whether the league will look at that and fine him or enforce any sort of penalty for tampering remains to be seen, but the fact that Hopkins hasn’t gone on the record to dismiss that narrative is somewhat intriguing.
Hopkins did acknowledge that the Bills would be an interesting fit for him when asked about his potential next destination, but there hasn’t been a lot of traction on that.
The Arizona Cardinals want to trade the aging superstar, yet his steep salary makes it kind of complicated.
The word around the league is that they’re asking for a second-round pick, but it seems likelier that they’ll just release him if they fail to find a trade partner.
Hopkins is reportedly open to working out a deal with his new team, and the Bills aren’t exactly oozing with cap space, so that would be perfect for them.
He’s one of the best wideouts in the game still, and having him, Stefon Diggs, and Dawson Knox with Josh Allen throwing darts should put the rest of the league on notice.NEXT: Former Bills Player Has Harsh Words For Jim Kelly
