Cardinals extending WR DeAndre Hopkins

Recommended Posts

I'm shocked the Cardinals elected to pay him instead of trading him for a haul of a broken overpaid halfback and second round pick. Puzzling decision.

And he’s going to make far more than Julio too considering he’s representing himself. Lamar did it as well for his rookie deal, but I’m a little surprised Hopkins is doing it on such a huge deal. Hope he doesn’t end up getting screwed over with the details that perhaps his representation will be more on the look out for. If not or if he’s aware of such tricks... very intelligent move to cut out the middle man.

How complex are the NFL contracts?   He did have a prior non rookie contract and the framework and wording can be very similar with respect to the major/minor clauses for injury and other aspects.    He could probably have a lawyer review the language and pay them a flat fee vs a big % of the overall contract.

He hasn't practiced right he's been "injured"?

?

He missed a couple days but they are most likely vet days. He has practiced like Fitz does. Skip a day every so often.

Just because he's negotiating the deal himself doesn't mean he doesn't have a legal team to look at the contract and advise him.

If this is the deal he wanted, I kinda understand BoB letting him go. That's a huge step forward ahead of other WR contracts.

He had three years on his deal prior to the trade. The two years and the new money line up...

Can I come through and say that if he was demanding nearly 28m per year, then I don't mind that we traded him. That is CRAZY, like QB money right there.

Think Rapoports tweet was a tad misleading.

makes 27.7 last two years. he'll be in his twilight years making 27.7, its a massive win for him.

That makes a lot more sense. I take back my comment about understanding BoB moving on for this contract.

This move makes a ton of sense for the Cardinals with the salary cap potentially being reduced next year.
