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.
