The Arizona Cardinals did what the Houston Texans refused to do, they paid wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins a shitload of money. Just days before they play their first game of the season the Cardinals have given the 28-year-old a two-year extension.
Hopkins negotiated the deal himself and with over $54 million in new money, the deal makes him the the highest paid non-quarterback in the history of the NFL.
Sources: The #AZCardinals are making star WR DeAndre Hopkins the highest paid non-QB ever, giving him a 2-year contract extension worth $54.5M in new money -- $27.25M per year. Hopkins, who did the deal himself, gets $42.75M guaranteed at signing.

All of this talent and excitement and the Cardinals are going to be fighting to stay out of the basement in the NFC West. Unless something unforeseen happens that division is going to belong to the Seahawks or 49ers.
But hey at least Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins will put up some decent numbers.
