DeAndre Hopkins, No worry about physical exam

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said there is "no concern" about finalizing the trade involving Hopkins and David Johnson, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports.

Analysis: Travel restrictions have prevented Hopkins and Johnson from undergoing physical exams with their new teams, which means the deal that was agreed upon three weeks ago still hasn't been processed through the league office. The Cardinals, seemingly unworried, have even taken the step of reaching out to Hopkins' representatives to discuss a new contract, with the veteran wideout entering the third season of a five-year, $81 million extension. Hopkins' dissatisfaction with his contract likely played a role in the recent trade agreement, as Texans coach/GM Bill O'Brien didn't want to set the precedent of renegotiating with a player that had three years remaining on his deal, per ESPN's Sarah Barshop. The Texans and Cardinals expect the Hopkins/Johnson trade to become official before the start of the NFL Draft on Apr. 23.

Deshaun Watson, What's left after Hopkins

The trade of DeAndre Hopkins leaves Watson with Will Fuller and Kenny Stills as the top two wide receiver targets, Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hopkins had become a crutch for the offense and rarely missed games. He topped the team in terms of catch and target share (29.3 and 28.8 percent, respectively). Watson and Hopkins were an elite combination, one that will be hard to replace. In steps the oft-injured Fuller and Stills, both considered deep threats that are not the franchise wideout that Hopkins has become. The Texans could add a wide receiver in what is considered a strong draft class for the position, but Watson has lost a security blanket and will need to adjust.

Will Fuller, Becomes No. 1 WR

Fuller (sports hernia) becomes the Texans top wideout after the team traded DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Hopkins trade continues to reverberate around Houston, and head coach Bill O'Brien is putting a lot of pressure on Fuller to be the No. 1 wide receiver. Fuller undoubtedly makes the Texans better -- in 2019, they were 8-3 and averaged 26.3 points per game when he played, 2-3 and 19.6 when he didn't. But it's important to remember that Hopkins was around for those games when Fuller was healthy, and keeping Fuller healthy for an entire 16-game schedule will be a challenge. Hopkins has missed just two games over seven NFL seasons, while Fuller has yet to play a full season and, on average, missed 5.5 games per season during his four-year NFL career.

Tyler Ervin, Rejoins Green Bay

Ervin signed a one-year, $1.047 million contract with the Packers on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Ervin was claimed off waivers from Jacksonville in early December and appeared in the final four regular season games for Green Bay, rushing once for 10 yards and catching two passes for 11 yards while returning six kicks for 160 yards and 11 punts for 106 yards. The Packers' return game was abysmal prior to his arrival, so it's not a major surprise to see the team wanting him back in 2020, likely in a similarly specialized role.

Deandrew White, Returns to Carolina

White signed a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: White appeared in 10 regular-season contests with the Panthers in 2019, recording four catches for 51 yards. He'll now get a shot to spend the offseason competing for a similar depth role in the team's wide receiver room.
