The Arizona Cardinals Just Gave DeAndre Hopkins The Bag

Videos by OutKick

Adam Schefter broke the news via Twitter that the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to an extension with star wideout DeAndre Hopkins. The deal is worth a total of $94 million over five-years, with $42.75 million guaranteed at signing.

Holy $%^$.

$18 million per year or $1,255,000 PER GAME. That’s some real dough.

After what most evaluators called a “grand slam” draft for Arizona, locking up Hopkins (for what cost them a second-round-pick) takes the cake. Can’t forget Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans didn’t want to pay D-Hop. That’s how he made his way to the desert in the first place. AZ paid up.

Hard not to love what Arizona is doing. Second-year quarterback Kyler Murray seems to approve.

Winning just five games last year left the Cardinals disappointed, but their ability to take care of their newest star should start a new wave: Winning.

The Kyler Murray-Hopkins duo should terrorize the NFC West for years to come and we’ll get our first taste next week when they take on the 49ers.

Dinner on DeAndre!
