Cardinals Release DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins is infamous for using his most memorable quote in Arizona during the postgame Zoom interview after he scored the "Hail Murray" touchdown against the Bills in 2020.

He claimed that the Bills had him surrounded. I simply made a better catch, Hopkins said.

While with the Cardinals, there were many occasions when the wide receiver made the superior catch.

Moving on from the soon-to-be 31-year-old made sense, however, as the team reset its roster under a new general manager and coach and Hopkins carried a $30 million salary cap charge while missing 15 of the previous 26 games due to suspension and injury.

Hopkins was released by the Cardinals on Friday following weeks of rumors and their failure to find a trade partner.

He will have a $22.6 million dead salary cap hit for the Cardinals in 2023, but after that his record will be clean.
