Another thing is becoming apparent, Ossenfort is a very patient man. He shows no sign of panic. While others are publishing 10 day deadline speculation, Ossenfort refuses to be moved by the Patriots saying the price is too high. Frankly the price should be high. Speed is not of the essence. I wouldn’t be shocked if the Cards waited for some inevitable injury to devastate a contender’s offensive plans. The Cards aren’t desperate for another 2023 pick. Hopkins could be moved after June 1 to spread out the cap hit. He could even be one of those increasingly popular in-season trades. Ossenfort also refuses to let a potential Beckham signing to be used for leverage. Sure it’s possible Hopkins will be traded tomorrow, but if he is it will be on Ossenfort’s terms.
