Report: Texans Trade DeAndre Hopkins to Cardinals for David Johnson
Blockbuster player-for-player trades seemingly occur often in MLB and NBA but are rarer in the NFL.
Today is a rare day, as the Houston Texans are trading All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals for former All-Pro running back David Johnson.
The news was first reported by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
The Texans are also receiving a second-round pick this year and a fourth-round selection in 2021 from Arizona, while the Cardinals will get a fourth-round pick in this year's draft.
Hopkins (27) is coming off a third-consecutive 1,000+ yard season, while Johnson (28) is coming off the lowest production of his career in a season when he was healthy.
Arizona placed a transition tag on running back Kenyan Drake, who they traded for from Miami mid-season last year, today.
