Titans’ DeAndre Hopkins Fires Brutal Shot At NFL Executives

DeAndre Hopkins, Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins revitalized his career last season, hauling in 75 receptions for 1,057 yards and seven touchdowns.

That came after Hopkins played in a grand total of 19 games the preceding two campaigns, leading many to believe that the aging receiver was cooked.

But, clearly, Hopkins still had plenty left in the tank, and now, he is letting NFL executives hear about it.

“In Ran We Trust” is a reference to Titans general manager Ran Carthon, who handed Hopkins a two-year, $26 million deal last year when very few believed in him.

The Titans’ receiving corps is looking dangerous heading into 2024

In 2023, Tennessee had Hopkins and not a whole lot else at wide receiver. But now, the Titans boast one of the more impressive receiver units in football.

Tennessee signed the top pass-catcher on the open market in Calvin Ridley this offseason and later added reliable veteran Tyler Boyd.

On paper, that is unquestionably one of the better-looking wide out crops in the NFL. That being said, there is some uncertainty surrounding the trio.

Hopkins just turned 32 years old, and as good as he was this past year, he still wasn’t even close to his old Houston Texans self, when he made four Pro Bowls while earning three First-Team All-Pro selections in seven seasons with the club. He notched another trip to the Pro Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals in 2020, which was his last truly great campaign.

Then there is Ridley, who is definitely a very talented receiver but had a problem with drops with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2023. As a matter of fact, Ridley registered a catch percentage of just 55.9 percent last season, although he still managed to catch 76 passes for 1,016 yards and eight scores.

Boyd will be the No. 3 receiver and actually has a pair of 1,000-yard campaigns on his resume, but the last time he achieved that mark was in 2019. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.

All things considered, there is no denying the talent the Titans possess at the position. Of course, that won’t matter quite as much if second-year quarterback Will Levis can’t regularly get his receivers the football, so there is a lot riding on Levis’ performance heading into 2024.
