its why he didnt play the last two weeks -- they didnt want an injury to diminish the value of the trade he wantsxc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media
Season was over already over but considering his salary and age i think we can get at best a late second round pickits why he didnt play the last two weeks -- they didnt want an injury to diminish the value of the trade he wants
If that, teams really do not ante up for trades like they used to if not a QB. Yeah, there are exceptions, but to accommodate the trade on both sides with the other team probably having to restructure something or another with that contract to make it work, I am expecting nothing higher than a third with maybe some late round picksSeason was over already over but considering his salary and age i think we can get at best a late second round pick
The accrued bonus hit would be $22 mil before June 1. Cut after June 1 the hit is $11 mil in 2023 and $11 mil in 2024 (dead money). The $8 mil salary, which would count against the 2023 cap would go to the cap of the team that acquires Hopkins. So 2023 would get hit for $11 mil bonus but save $8 mil salary. Thus a net charge of $3 mil against the cap. The dead money stays against the 2024 cap. I realize compared to the $19 mil keeping him it looks different.Explain the math?
And I doubt very much that we are getting a first for Dhop.
Not sure Hopkins has that much juice coming off suspensions and injuries.Especially with him demanding a new contract.
He won't accept that tradeTeams that could trade for Hopkins: Falcons, Giants, Ravens, Patriots, Cowboys
How about the Falcons 2nd, number 40 overall?
Maybe those issues were because KK didn't know how to run a creative enough offense to be balanced & get our best WR the ball? Smart play callers know how to take advantage of mismatches & get their play makers the ball by being creative. KK is none of the above, same Mickey Mouse offense that the NFL had figured out. He's way more creative with less stars on the team, look at 2019 & the game Sunday for examples. A good offensive mind (insert name) can figure out how to use Hopkins plus get him & Kyler on the same page.This. Peterson changed his tune after Wilks was fired. Still there were serious issues between DHop and Kyler last season.
I think he's frustrated all the way around because of the offense KK keeps running & doesn't make adjustments. A new coach (hopefully Sean Payton?) Could change his mindset imo. Hopkins sees his window for a SB shrinking, he ain't getting any younger so I can't really blame him for wanting away from KK. We'll just have to see who the new coach is & how he can fit Hopkins into it? If Hopkins still wants out after talking it over with the new coach, then you trade him for everything you can get.Agreed. It's just curious, though, that Mike would have the trade info leaked after firing Kliff and Keim, if that's where Hops anger is pointed. Again, I don't think it's a Murray issue.
So lame. Not something Fitz ever would have done. What a prima donna. He was worried his PED suspension might hurt his HOF chances? How about intentionally sitting out games? SMH.its why he didnt play the last two weeks -- they didnt want an injury to diminish the value of the trade he wants
I for one applaud DHop for using any PEDS in the National Steroid League.Still waiting for DHop’s announcement on the details of he and his team’s independent investigation of his PED suspension. Said it would come after the season. Well?
How can this organization be “ trading Hopkins” without a GM in place?
The Cardinals have TWO interim co-GMs.There's no GM. Who's leaking this info?
The Cardinals have TWO interim co-GMs.
This.One thing the cards never seem to get right is trade someone right at the downslope of their career. We may get another good year from him, but if we are gonna go full tilt on a rebuild then get as much assets as possible because 2023 will most likely be nothing but step one with new regime setting up 2024 as the year for marked improvement
Would prefer to not trade our best player if it’s accompanied with minimal cap relief.
What about David Johnson?One thing the cards never seem to get right is trade someone right at the downslope of their career. We may get another good year from him, but if we are gonna go full tilt on a rebuild then get as much assets as possible because 2023 will most likely be nothing but step one with new regime setting up 2024 as the year for marked improvement
