DeAndre Hopkins Trade Rumors: Von Miller says Cardinals WR told him he wanted to be a Buffalo Bill.

Von Miller is no stranger to recruiting star receivers. As a member of the Los Angeles Rams, he successfully helped franchise affiliate Odell Beckham Jr. land a deal after being fired by the Cleveland Browns. This signing helped LA reach and eventually win the Super Bowl. Now Miller seems to be back, only this time as a member of the Buffalo Bills. Now he has his eyes on Cardinals wideout DeAndre Hopkins.

The five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has been the subject of trade rumors this offseason as Arizona looks to potentially leave him. For his part, Hopkins has been largely silent publicly on these trade talks, and we mean that literally. In a recent interview with CBS Sports’ Bryant McFadden, Hopkins, by just letting his body language be judged, seemed to indicate that he is intrigued by the possibility of joining the Bills. Additionally, Miller has since revealed that Hopkins told him he wanted to come to Buffalo.

“I talk to Hop all the time, and it’s the same with OBJ,” Miller said of the Buffalo News. “You just never know until you know. Hop said he wants to be a Buffalo Bill, and you never know until you get DeAndre Hopkins’ signature on a contract. I’m not sure what the circumstances are or what’s going on with it, but I’d love to see DeAndre Hopkins here and I’d love to have his skills on our offense with Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs and Dawson Knox and Gabe Davis .

Adding Hopkins to that offense would be an embarrassment for Buffalo as it continues to push for a deep playoff run in hopes of winning the franchise’s first Super Bowl. The Hopkins-Diggs duo would arguably be the top receiver combination in the NFL, and that’s not even factoring in Gabe Davis and running backs Damien Harris, James Cook and Nyheim Hines. With all those plays in mind, and with MVP-caliber quarterback Josh Allen in mind, it’s no wonder Hopkins should be excited about the idea of ​​playing in Buffalo.

The Bills have about $6.5 million in available cap space, so they’d have to do some maneuvering to accommodate Hopkins (and his $30.7 million cap fee) and pay compensation, which would result in the Cardinals letting him go. This year, Buffalo has six draft picks, including three in the top 100 (No. 27, No. 59, and No. 91). While a first-round winner seems unlikely for Hopkins, it would be interesting to see if a Day 2 pick would be palatable to both sides.

Whatever the outcome, Hopkins joining forces with Miller and the rest of the Bills would only make them an even more dangerous club in the AFC if it ever came to fruition.
