The Arizona Cardinals released superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, which, as expected, is a move that has already garnered tons of speculation from fanbases all around the league. Hopkins, who is about to turn 31 years of age, has had limited action on the field these past two seasons for a variety of reasons but has still been a top-level player when he’s able to play.
This begs the question, is he a player the Giants should pursue now that he is available?
Hopkins could no doubt become an instant number-one option for Daniel Jones, which is something he has yet to have during his tenure as Giants quarterback. Hopkins is a guy who has some of the surest hands in all of football, along with some of the best footwork and route running in the league.
In my opinion, I believe they should. Hopkins would bring something to the Giants that they have not had since the Odell Beckham trade, and him paired with Darren Waller, supplemented by all of the speed guys they have, such as Jalin Hyatt, Darius Slayton, and Parris Campbell, could create one of the most dynamic offenses in all of football.
Whatever they choose to do, they will still be much improved on the offensive side of the ball. Jones and his shiny new toys will have a passing offense predicated in the short game, with lots of slot action from guys like Campbell and Wandale Robinson, with the ability to take the top off of the defense.

We will certainly be seeing a lot of passes like this in the upcoming season, and I think Hopkins could truly revolutionize this offense into the upper echelon of the NFL.
