Arizona Cardinals Re-Sign DeAndre Hopkins to Massive Contract Extension

DeAndre Hopkins has cashed in.

The former Houston Texans receiver signed a two-year, $54.5 million contract extension with the Cardinals on Tuesday. The two-year deal will keep Hopkins in Arizona for a total of five years at $94 million overall. 

Nuk's extension includes $42.75 million in guarantees, and the final year on the contract is voidable. The deal also has a no-trade clause and a guarantee that he cannot be franchise tagged. 

Traded by the Texans in the offseason, Nuk came to the Cardinals with a ton of leverage, and it seems to have paid off for the All-Pro receiver. Hopkins reportedly negotiated the contract himself.

The former Clemson star finished the 2019 campaign with 104 catches, 1,165 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches.
