The news Arizona Cardinals fans are waiting for is when the team trades wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. An unlikely source has some info to report — former NFL cornerback Pacman Jones.
He appeared on the Pat McAfee Show and said there are five teams interested in trading for Hopkins.
Jones is a friend of Hopkins’ and, according to Darren Urban, facilitated Hopkins’ recent appearance on McAfee’show.
“My sources say that D-Hop is getting hot right now,” Jones said. “Interest is heating up. Five teams (are) on that list,”

“The Falcons need help. They need wide receivers,” Jones said.
However, they are not in a position to win now, which is what Hopkins wants to do.
They have the 44th pick (second round) and the 75th pick (third round) in the draft.
This is both a surprise and not a surprise. If they can get a deal done with quarterback Lamar Jackson, he makes a ton of sense because it gives them a legit receiving target.
“My sources say that might be a landing spot,” Jones said, provided a deal with Jackson happens.
They do not have a second-round pick in the draft. After their first-round selection, their next pick is No. 86 overall, in the third round.
The Bills are in play and would give them a potent pair of pass catchers with Stefon Diggs.
The Bills have the 59th pick (second round) and the 91st pick (third round) in the draft.
“I don’t think it’s even about the money right now,” Jones said. Hopkins wants to win.
Las Vegas Raiders
“The Raiders are on the board also,” Jones said.
Las Vegas has a second-round pick (No. 38 overall) and two third-round picks (No. 70, No. 100).
New England Patriots
“Patriots fans should get excited,” Jones said.
They have the 46th pick (Round 2) and the 76th (Round 3) picks in the draft.
Per Jones, it would appear that the Bills and the Ravens are Hopkins’ preferred destinations.
