DeAndre Hopkins may have his choice of a few teams when he is ready to make a decision in free agency, but there are some who believe he is trending toward a reunion with one of his former teammates.

Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 reported on Friday that it is “ regarded as a strong possibility ” that Hopkins will sign with the Cleveland Browns.

Hopkins reportedly spent time visiting with the Houston Texans this week , but Wilson was told the star wide receiver is not expected to re-sign with his former team.

Hopkins and Cleveland quarterback Deshaun Watson played together in Houston. When asked about the possibility of a reunion with Hopkins, Watson told reporters this week that the Browns “would love to have him.”

“Me and D-Hop, we just naturally talk. We’ve been talking since the Houston days and then also whenever he left for Arizona, we were always talking,” Watson said, according to Wilson. “He’s always been a brother of mine since how I was coming out of high school. Our connection, our relationship, has always been great.”

Some executives are concerned that Hopkins may not be as explosive as he once was , but the Browns already have Amari Cooper. Hopkins and Cooper would make a great wide receiver tandem and almost certainly create problems for opposing defenses.

Hopkins seems to be enjoying his free agency tour, as evidenced by the way he sent fans into a frenzy with a recent tweet . He will likely continue to take his time, but the Browns are in the running.
