Should the Bears sign DeAndre Hopkins?

The Arizona Cardinals released star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins Friday after weeks of trade speculation.  Hopkins should have no shortage of suitors, but it’s doubtful the Chicago Bears would be one of those teams calling.

Here are three reasons why.

DeAndre Hopkins

Age and Production

Hopkins will turn 31 in a few weeks.  As we’ve seen with Poles in the last two offseasons, he has emphasized getting younger and more athletic.  An old expensive veteran would certainly go against the grain. Also, Hopkins’ production has dropped significantly since the 2020 season, when he recorded 1,407 receiving yards on 115 receptions. In 2021, he was limited to 42 catches in just 10 games; last year, he only played in 9 games (more on this below).
