DeAndre Hopkins tweets “life is good in Arizona” after J.J. Watt signs

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is closing in on his one-year anniversary with the Cardinals and he has a new teammate to celebrate the milestone with later this month.

That new teammate is also an old teammate as Hopkins and defensive end J.J. Watt were both on the Texans until Hopkins was traded to the Cardinals last year. Hopkins reached out to Watt on social media last month to pitch him on joining the Cardinals and was back online after Watt announced he was signing a two-year deal with the club.

“Life is good in Arizona,” Hopkins wrote.

Hopkins wasn’t the only Cardinals player to react to the Watt news. Chandler Jones shared a text he sent Watt last month saying that he’d be Watt’s personal chef if he signed with the team and asked what his new teammate/pass rushing partner would like to eat.

  1. Exhibit A on what not to do when trying to build a winner.

    I wonder if Fitzgerald will take up more cap space for no reason yet again?

  2. I thought he’d sign with a true contender. He’s only got so many years left.

  3. Don’t know about life being good in Arizona, but the paychecks sure are.

  4. Now the two of you can get Arizona a championship, like you did in Houston.

  5. They haven’t won more than 8 games in 5 years, so it can’t be that good.

  6. The pressure is on now for Kyler Murray to learn how to throw a pass and not just run around.

  7. I guess you got to respect what he did but maybe not the part about winning a Superbowl was more important than money. I guess when push comes to shove, the owners aren’t thew only greedy people in the game, you can toss players in the mix too. Greed is Good!

  8. It’s a good signing for Arizona. Some help on the defense will make them closer to being a contender. I would not be surprised to learn that Watt’s decision was influenced by persuasion from Hopkins.

  9. Does this matter??????The league is owned by the CHIEFS…..(Packers maybe), this only makes the cardinals a ‘lil better…….if Watts wanted SB ring, KC was the destination

  10. PLEASE PLEASE TELL ME I’M WRONG, DOES SIGNING WATT MAKE MURRAY BETTER THAN MAHOMES OR HOPKINS BETTER THAN THE CHEETAH, KELCE, WATKINS ETC…..LIST GOES ON AND ON…….GIMME A BREAKER, CARDS MIGHT NOT EVEN WIN THEIR DIVISION

  11. Like most, everyone is completely sick and tired of Tom Brady but guess what…..Patrick Mahomes is Brady’s replacement and the closest QB to stop him Mahomes is Rodgers and he’s getting old……sorry ARIZONA, Warner was your last for now
