DeAndre Hopkins has been one of the most-discussed wide receivers throughout the NFL offseason.
There have been significant rumors and conversations surrounding him, citing that he is unhappy with the Arizona Cardinals.
While his career with the Cardinals hangs in the balance, Hopkins was recently seen working out with Deebo Samuel.

Samuel and Hopkins are commonly identified as two of the league’s top receivers.
They also happen to play in the same division, which could be a point of contention between the two teams.
However, players tend to train together during the offseason, regardless of their team.
This is an opportunity for them to connect and grow while pushing each other to be the best at what they do.
While the rumor mill may be running rampant about the connection between Samuel and Hopkins, there could be bigger fish to fry at the moment.
The Cardinals finished the 2022 season with a record of 4-13, and haven’t been one of the most active teams during the offseason.
Many around the league have cited this as a potential reason that Hopkins may want to leave the team, given their recent lack of success.
However, Hopkins himself has recently come out with a video outside of the Cardinals’ facility, saying that he doesn’t want to leave the team.
Ultimately, it appears that, even though the Cardinals haven’t been successful over the past few years, Hopkins is likely to stick around, pending a major attitude shift.
