DeAndre Hopkins to Visit Tennessee Titans in Free Agency - Will He Sign?

Free agent DeAndre Hopkins will visit the Tennessee Titans, his first visit since being released by the Arizona Cardinals. The Titans need a top wide receiver, and Hopkins has worked with the Titans' coach in the past.

Key Points

DeAndre Hopkins to visit Titans for potential signing.
Titans in need of a top wide receiver.
Hopkins has valuable veteran leadership.

DeAndre Hopkins, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals in May, is set to visit the Tennessee Titans in free agency. Hopkins is the first team he has visited since his release, and the Titans are in need of a top wide receiver. The meeting between the two parties will take place on Sunday, July 10th.

Hopkins played with Titans coach Mike Vrabel in Houston when Vrabel was the linebackers coach and defensive coordinator for the Texans. Vrabel has stated that he won't be recruiting Hopkins, but rather looking for players who want to be with the team.

Hopkins Hops to Titans for a New Start

Hopkins was a three-time All-Pro with the Houston Texans before being traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2020. He was released by the Cardinals in May due to salary cap issues. Hopkins has recorded 221 receptions for 2,696 yards and 17 touchdowns in three seasons with the team.

The Titans have been searching for a new WR1 since trading A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of the 2022 season. The Titans' top three wide receivers are relatively unknown players, and this could be Ryan Tannehill's final season as starting quarterback.

Hopkins, who just turned 31 years old, has valuable veteran leadership that could benefit the Titans' relatively young wide receiver group. Second-year receiver Treylon Burks is expected to be the No. 1 receiver for the Titans, and he believes that Hopkins would be a great mentor and that his game on the field speaks for itself.

Other teams have also expressed interest in Hopkins, such as the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns, but it remains uncertain if there will be an Odell Beckham Jr.-like deal for Hopkins.

In conclusion, Hopkins' visit to the Titans could be a great move for both parties. The Titans need a top wide receiver, and Hopkins has experience working with the Titans' coach in the past. Hopkins has impressive statistics and valuable veteran leadership that could benefit the Titans' young wide receiver group. It remains to be seen if the Titans will make an offer to Hopkins, but the visit is a step in the right direction.
