Reports: Titans signing WR DeAndre Hopkins

Free agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is expected to sign with the Tennessee Titans, multiple outlets reported on Sunday. Per ESPN and NFL Network, Hopkins will sign a two-year, $26 million contract worth up to $32 million with incentives. He reported will receive a base salary of $12 million in the first season with a chance to increase to $15 million.

Hopkins, 31, and Titans coach Mike Vrabel were together with the Houston Texans when the latter was their linebackers coach (2014-16) and defensive coordinator (2017). Hopkins met with the team in Nashville last month. The Arizona Cardinals released Hopkins on May 26 after they reportedly failed to find a trade partner. A three-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection, Hopkins has 853 catches for 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns in 145 games (all starts) with the Texans (2013-19) and Cardinals.

Hopkins had 64 catches for 717 yards with three touchdowns during a 2022 season in which he missed the first six games while serving a suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. He sat out the final two games with a knee injury.

Since trading A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of the 2022 season, the Titans have been looking for a new WR1. Treylon Burks, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Kyle Phillips are the current projected starters. This is the first major splash for new Titans general manager Ran Carthon, who was hired in January to replace Jon Robinson. Hopkins also was courted by the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs. –Field Level Media
