2. Hopkins can be the focal point of the New York offense
Many of the suitors linked to Hopkins already have star wideouts. Buffalo has Stefon Diggs, Dallas has CeeDee Lamb, Baltimore has Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Zay Flowers (the Ravens also run their offense through Mark Andrews), while the Jets have Garrett Wilson.
Hopkins would instantly become WR1 in New York. The Giants have strong complementary wideouts in Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Jalin Hyatt, Parris Campbell Jr, Sterling Shepard, and Wan'Dale Robinson, but most of those wideouts profile as WR2 and not WR1.
The minute Hopkins steps foot in the tri-state area, he would instantly become the focal point of the Giant offense. Last offseason, Philadelphia traded for Tennessee wideout AJ Brown, adding the star to a strong wide receiver room that needed a WR1.
The Giants are in a similar spot. The G-Men have a very strong wide receiver room, but still need an alpha. Brown caught 88 passes for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2022 for Philly, and helped lead the Birds to just their fourth Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. Hopkins can have that type of impact in 2023 for Big Blue. He would instantly rebuild his brand and be looked at as one of the NFL's premier receivers again.
