DeAndre Hopkins is free to go wherever he wants.
After officially becoming a free agent, DeAndre Hopkins is expected to receive a lot of interest from various teams.
However, two teams have emerged as the top contenders for the star wide receiver’s services – the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills. ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler suggested during an appearance on the “Keyshawn, JWill & Max Show” that both teams may be more concerned about preventing their AFC rival from securing Hopkins than signing him themselves.
Interesting that @JFowlerESPN describes preventing Buffalo from obtaining another weapon as part of the Chiefs’ motivation to sign Hopkins (and vice versa). We’ve got an arms race. pic.twitter.com/ququ11Xdi0

Fowler did note that the Chiefs believe Kadarius Toney could be a potential No.1 receiver. Other NFL teams think the Bills are a threat to sign Hopkins. Some other possible teams interested in Hopkins include the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets. Hopkins previously said that he would be open to a reunion with Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.
During the time when the Arizona Cardinals were seeking to trade the five-time Pro Bowl wideout, the Chiefs and Bills demonstrated a genuine interest in acquiring him.
Due to Hopkins’ contract requirements, his ultimate market value is yet to be determined.
