The NFL offseason has been a whirlwind with all the trades and signings that shifted the league.
One of the big moves that has yet to be made is regarding former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins was expected to be traded throughout the offseason but the Cardinals could not find a trade partner.
That is why they decided it was best to release Hopkins.
Now the All-Pro is free to sign with any team and is looking to join a contender.
Hopkins wanted to make sure he got himself a strong agent that can help him land the best contract possible.
That is why Hopkins agreed to sign with Klutch Sports.
According to Ian Rapoport, Hopkins has hired Kelton Crenshaw, who represents a few other top NFL players.
Former #AZCardinals star WR DeAndre Hopkins has hired agent Kelton Crenshaw of @KlutchSports to represent him in free agency, source says. Hopkins had previously represented himself before signing with Crenshaw, who also reps Chase Young, Kayvon Thibodeaux and DeVonta Smith.

It is clear Hopkins is looking for a good contract in free agency.
But also he wants to go to a Super Bowl-contending team.
Hiring an agent should allow him to sit back and hopefully get the best of both worlds.
Hopkins will be 31 years old next season and his prime is quickly running out.
Many players do not get the chance to compete for a Super Bowl throughout their careers.
Hopkins has played in six playoff games in his career, all while with the Houston Texans.
Some of the teams that are expected to show interest in Hopkins are the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.
Each has Super Bowl aspirations and could use another elite pass catcher.
You can assume Hopkins will want to sign with a team sooner than later.
So it will be interesting to see which team makes an aggressive push to acquire the star.NEXT: NFL Insider Gives Latest Update On Justin Jefferson Contract Talks
