Two of the top teams in the AFC are reportedly emerging as the frontrunners to land free agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs are in an “arms race” to acquire the former All-Pro receiver:
The teams I’m talking to believe that the Bills and the Chiefs are threats here [to sign Hopkins]. These are two AFC contenders that are vying in this arms race but the problem is they don’t have a lot of money, just a couple million in cap space each. … There will be a lot of teams that will at least kick the tires on this and call.
Fowler also didn’t rule out the idea that Hopkins would want to reunite with former Texans teammate Deshaun Watson in Cleveland.
But Nuk Hopkins did admit in a recent interview that Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes were two of the quarterbacks he’d most like to play with before his career is over.
Hopkins was released by the Arizona Cardinals earlier this week.
