So, there’s still some hope that DeAndre Hopkins ends up catching balls from NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones next season? That appears to be the case. Ever since it was revealed that the Arizona Cardinals were looking to trade the former All-Pro wideout, plenty of Big Blue fans have been dreaming of Joe Schoen pulling off a blockbuster trade to land him.

While it may seem like that door could be closed for Schoen and Co., the team over at Pro Football Focus doesn’t agree with that. In a new piece from PFF’s Sam Monson, he mentions the Giants, Patriots and Panthers as possible landing spots for the talented wideout.

DeAndre Hopkins landing with the NY Giants would be unreal

"“Hopkins has been the biggest name on the trading block all offseason, and in a year where elite receivers are hard to come by, he is still an option that must be tempting for several teams, even with his contract,” Monson wrote. “That contract, long seen as an outlier by the rest of the NFL, is significantly more palatable now than it was when he first received it, which could tempt some teams into parting with a draft pick to secure a No. 1 option.”"

All three teams Monson mentions make a ton of sense. For the Giants, let’s face it, they’re still in need of a WR1 for the offense and Danny Dimes. Schoen has worked tirelessly to improve the offense this offseason already, signing speedster Parris Campbell and trading a third-round pick for Darren Waller, one of the best tight ends in the game.

Still, though, there’s no WR1 on the roster. The returns of Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and more will be massive for this team, but the fanbase is ready for a standout wideout to be added. Who knows, it could be Hopkins, or Schoen could bring in someone like Quentin Johnston, Jordan Addison or Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the first round of the NFL Draft.

You never know what might happen. Just when we were ready to close the door on the Hopkins-to-NY dream, Monson has opened things up once again.
