Chiefs Are In Good Position To Trade For DeAndre Hopkins

Some people questioned if trading Tyreek Hill during the 2022 offseason was the start to the downfall of the Kansas City Chiefs offense. Those doubters were proved wrong as Patrick Mahomes won his second MVP award and the team took home the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in four years.

As the team prepares for the 2023 season, some more adjustments to the offense are going to be needed. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman both left in free agency, signing with the New England Patriots and New York Jets, respectively.

There is still plenty of talent left at the wide receiver position for Mahomes to rely on. Last season’s free agent signing, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, remains on the roster. The organization has high hopes for young pass catchers Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore to take that next step in their development.

In free agency this year, Richie James was signed away from the New York Giants after a career in 2022. A second-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft was used on Rashee Rice out of SMU as well.

While there is talent, experience is what the group is lacking. Outside of Travis Kelce and Valdes-Scantling, there isn’t much of a track record producing in the NFL. That is what has led Kansas City to be involved in some trade rumors this offseason.

One player who continues to pop up as a possible target is DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals. While Monti Ossenfort poured water on the trade rumors after the draft, Hopkins recently opened them back up when hinting at which teams he would like to play with.

To little surprise, the Chiefs ended up on that list because of Mahomes. Following his appearance on I AM ATHLETE, Hopkins’ odds of landing with the Chiefs in a trade skyrocketed over at Bookies.com.

Kansas City is now second with odds of +300 behind only his current team, the Cardinals, whose odds are +200. That means Arizona has an implied probability of 33.3 percent of having Hopkins suit up for them in 2023, while the Chiefs implied odds are 25 percent.
