The Cleveland Browns could still easily land DeAndre Hopkins
The Cleveland Browns need help at receiver still. Despite having a lot of names in the room, the room lacks viable depth. There are a lot of “if’s” and “maybe” types of talents, but not a lot of guaranteed guys. People are assuming that past draft picks made by the Browns will finally “break out”. They also believe that Elijah Moore, who the New York Jets gave up on due to his poor performance and poor attitude, will turn things around here.
That’s a lot of hope to rely on. That’s why someone like DeAndre Hopkins is so enticing for the team.
Everyone wants Hopkins, except no one seemingly wants him. The issue with Hopkins, beyond the presumed declining abilities, is his price tag. Hopkins wants a number similar to that of Odell Beckham Jr., who the Baltimore Ravens over-paid, to get a massive name in their receiver room.
No one else is going to be doing that for Hopkins. The market is slow and because it’s slow, many people are unsure who will eventually land the former Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals receiver. A multi-time Pro Bowler, Hopkins was once among the elite receivers in the game, now, not so much.
That said, a lot of teams still need help at the position, and the Cleveland Browns are among the teams who are apparently very interested in him. And despite what is believed by others, including our sister-site Dawg Pound Daily, the Browns are very much in the running to land him.
