DeAndre Hopkins is closing in on a contract extension – one that was self-negotiated – with the Arizona Cardinals, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Monday.

The news comes after Los Angeles Chargers wideout Keenan Allen signed a four-year, $ 80 million deal behind the Atlanta Falcons’ Julio Jones on Weekend in terms of an annual average price of $ 80 million on Weekend.

For Hopkins, the Cardinals sold this Johnson in 2021 due to a base salary of more than $ 8 million, sending David Johnson back in Texas, unloading his contract with a base salary of $ 10.2 million in 2020.

Arizona this year included a 2021 fourth-round pick and their second-round selection (40th overall), which drafted Houston DT Ross Bullock.

Arizona received a 2020 fourth-round pick (131st overall), with the 6-foot-1, 212-pound Hopkins receiving in trade with the Texans. The Cardinals tackled LSU defensive tackle Rashard Lawrence with that pick.

Hopkins is a four-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro.

He caught 104 balls for 1,165 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He has 632 catches for 8,602 yards and 54 touchdowns in 110 matches played at Hopkins.
