DeAndre Hopkins: What I Do On The Field Is ‘All That Matters’
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins says he isn’t paying attention to the trade rumors surrounding him.
According to Ian Rappoport, DeAndre Hopkins was mentioned several times at the NFL scouting combine. The player, though, is focusing on getting back to his best after a challenging 2022.
DeAndre Hopkins joined Arizona in 2020 and had a 1,400-yard, six-touchdown season that year. He then tore his ACL in 2021 and played in only nine games for the Cardinals in 2022.

“Obviously, you know, I’ve been hearing a lot of trade talks,” Hopkins said.
“I take things day for day, man. I don’t look forward to the future. I live in the present moment. Right now, the Arizona Cardinals is the team and the roster that I’m on and I’m preparing myself for whatever the future holds. I don’t really look forward to the future. I let you guys do that talk.”
“I would love to give you as much information as I can but right now, we just been keeping our head down,” Hopkins said. “Obviously, paying attention to the headlines and tabloids and stuff like that because you got to. You know, when you hear some of those trade rumors, you hate to think that all those things are lies.”
“I’ve been traded before and heard speculation about it and I kind of shoot it off and I was like, ‘Nah, the Texans would never trade me,’ and then next thing you know, here I am going to the Cardinals. So we keep close attention to the tabloids but we don’t put anything out in the tabloids ourselves. DeAndre Hopkins going to do what DeAndre Hopkins do when I’m on the field. That’s all that matters.”
