"Titans' Dilemma: Will DeAndre Hopkins Remain After the Trade Deadline?"


The Titans have already traded starting safety and defensive captain Kevin Byard, so there's a strong feeling that another Titan could be available.

Including receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

When asked by reporters Friday about a possible transfer, Hopkins gave a knowing half-smile (per ESPN.com's Turon Davenport): ``When my number is called, I do my job. is a Tennessee giant.''

"This is football, this is business," Hopkins said of the Byard trade.

Hopkins and running back Derrick Henry have been the subject of the most trade speculation, especially after the Byard trade. Hopkins is under contract through 2024, while Henry is in the final year of his contract.

The window for all 2023 transactions closes at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 31st.

Hopkins is a former first-round pick of the Texans. The Cardinals released him in late May. The Patriots were another team that Hopkins was linked to before he signed with Tennessee.
