After the Arizona Cardinals released DeAndre Hopkins, NFL media was quick to predict his landing spot, likely a contending team.
While Hopkins will be 31 years old to begin the 2023 season, many teams believe he has enough in the tank to impact their roster.
In a recent appearance on ESPN, Jeremy Fowler pointed to the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills as the two likely destinations for him.
Interesting that @JFowlerESPN describes preventing Buffalo from obtaining another weapon as part of the Chiefs’ motivation to sign Hopkins (and vice versa). We’ve got an arms race. pic.twitter.com/ququ11Xdi0

The Chiefs currently have a young receiving room, recently adding Rashee Rice from SMU in the draft.
Alongside Rice are Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who are likely the team’s top four options.
Of course, the Chiefs still have Travis Kelce at tight end, who continues to command a high target share.
As for the Bills, they are led by Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis and have been on the hunt for a third receiving option.
They also have a great tight end situation, with both Dawson Knox and Dalton Kincaid, a new first-round draft pick.
Both of these teams could use Hopkins’ veteran presence on their team, adding to an already impressive roster.
While the Chiefs have continued to dominate in the AFC, the Bills have struggled to get to the Super Bowl over the last few years.
Will the Bills take a more aggressive approach, given their recent inability to reach the title game?
They might have to stay aggressive, otherwise, the Chiefs could strike while the iron is still hot, adding yet another elite option to their team.NEXT: Video Shows Aaron Rodgers At Taylor Swift Concert
