NFL Trade (and Signing) Block
I've recently discussed possibilities for players to either sign or get traded to certain teams. This analysis has been all over the place, so I thought I'd move everything to one page.

Cardinals to trade WR DeAndre Hopkins (updated Sept. 10, 2023)
Sources have told Jordan Schultz that the Cardinals plan on trading DeAndre Hopkins this offseason. The Cardinals are in a rough cap situation for the long haul, so it makes sense to trade Hopkins.
Here are some teams that could trade for Hopkins:
Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons have the second-most cap space in the NFL behind the Bears. And unlike the Bears, they didn't trade a premium draft choice for someone like Chase Claypool. Drake London has enjoyed a promising start to his career, but Atlanta needs a major upgrade across from him.
New Giants: The Giants are third in cap space, and they also sorely need a receiver. They got rid of Kadarius Toney, and Kenny Golladay was a huge bust signing, so they need to give Daniel Jones more help.
New England Patriots: The Patriots are in the top five of cap space as well. Bill Belichick is terrible at drafting receivers, so it would make sense to trade for someone like Hopkins to give Mac Jones the best chance of succeeding.
Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens are devoid of talent at receiver, excluding Rashod Bateman. They have the fifth-most cap space in the NFL.
Dallas Cowboys: Jerry Jones wanted to sign Odell Beckham Jr., so I imagine he'd have interest in Hopkins. It'll be difficult for him to make it work, however, given the team's financial situation.
