Steelers Expected to Miss DeAndre Hopkins



Steelers DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins could look to sign with his former quarterback in Houston, Deshaun Watson, but it seems that will not happen. The Steelers could have been sweating another top receiver being added to the division, but apparently, that seems less than likely to happen.

Watson wants Hopkins to come to Cleveland, but according to Mary Kay Cabot of, the Browns are not interested in adding a big-name receiver. In fact, a visit altogether has not been scheduled as a result of that lack of interest. It seems with Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and others in the room, Cleveland is content with standing pat at this point in their receiver room.

“I know there’s a lot of things swirling around in the media about him possibly coming to Cleveland and for me, my answer to that, is of course we would love to have him,” Watson said. “He knows that. We had a lot of connections, but that’s kind of out of my range of things to coordinate, so all I can do is make a call and see what happens and let AB (Andrew Berry) do the rest.”

That follows the rumors that were swirling. However, Hopkins has a visit scheduled to visit the Tennessee Titans and could visit the New England Patriots as well. While the Steelers would still have to face him in 2023 in that case, they would miss him twice a year for the next few years to come. That is as good an outcome for them no matter how they slice it, since Pittsburgh itself is not in the race to land Hopkins.

Hopkins was released by Arizona Cardinals after they failed to find a partner to trade him. Now, Hopkins is biding his time on the open market and taking visits before he officially signs with a team before the 2023 season.
