The rumors continue to swirl around the NFL about where superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals might land before the start of the 2023 campaign.
Although Hopkins might not be the dominant force he once was on the gridiron, he can be a difference-maker on a title-contending team or a perennial playoff team trying to take the next step to contend for a Super Bowl title.
One title-contending franchise that has been linked to a lot of star players around the league the last couple of years has been the Buffalo Bills, who seem to be in on the Hopkins sweepstakes, according to star linebacker Von Miller via NFL Rumors.

With the Baltimore Ravens recently signing Odell Beckham Jr., the Bills’ pursuit of the one-time Super Bowl champion is obviously over, which means shifting their focus to bringing in Hopkins to play alongside Stefon Diggs is a smart move.
However, if the rumors about Jackson’s demands are true that he wants both Beckham and Hopkins in Baltimore in order to sign a new deal, it could become a two-team race for the veteran wideout.
The fact that Hopkins has expressed a desire to end up in Buffalo bodes well for Josh Allen and company, but it remains to be seen what the Cardinals are asking for in return and if the Bills are willing to pay that price.
Hopkins played only nine games for the Cardinals last season, with the five-time All-Pro wideout catching 64 passes for 717 yards and three touchdowns.NEXT: Fans React To Today's Major Damar Hamlin News
