The ever-prolific Nuk keeps rolling with brand-new home — check out the details behind the Titans’ DeAndre Hopkins contract.
DeAndre Hopkins has done quite a bit in his football career. He was a state champion at Daniel High School back home in South Carolina. During his college years at Clemson just down the road, he earned First Team All-SEC honors and helped lay the groundwork for what would become a championship tradition just a couple of short years later under Dabo Swinney. A first-round pick n the 2013 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, “Nuk” has made five Pro Bowls as of this writing on the way to becoming not-so-sneakily one of football’s top all-time earners at the wide receiver position.
He found himself at a crossroads following the 2022 season, however, when the Arizona Cardinals said thanks-but-no-thanks just before the player’s two-year contract extension was set to begin. That meant a return to free agency earlier than expected.
Enter the Titans, who swooped picked the dog days of summer 2023 to ink the impressive playmaker to a two-year deal worth $26 million.
Let’s take a closer look at the numbers behind Tennessee’s DeAndre Hopkins contract.
