GLENDALE, Ariz. — DeAndre Hopkins is ready for his mid-career move to Arizona. The Cardinals pulled a stunner during the offseason when they landed Hopkins in a trade with the Houston Texans.

Hopkins is one of the game's elite receivers and he's had at least 1,000 yards receiving in five of the past six seasons.

He's spent the offseason learning from his new teammates, including second-year quarterback Kyler Murray and veteran receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Second-year coach Kliff Kingsbury said he's thrilled to have Hopkins on the roster.
