Titans Considering Extension For DeAndre Hopkins?

Monday, July 8, 2:56 PM

Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is entering the second year of a two-year, $26 million deal that he made look like a bargain after bouncing back in 2023. In the spring, Hopkins removed pictures and affiliations featuring team logos from his social-media accounts, but he was around and joined quarterback Will Levis and other receivers on a trip to work and have fun this offseason. It remains to be seen if the Titans will try to extend Hopkins before the start of the 2024 season. It's not an easy decision for a 32-year-old wideout. If the Titans don't give him an extension, they could lose Hopkins just as he and Levis and this Brian Callahan offense starts to click. The Titans should throw more this year, but Hopkins' age, Levis' inexperience and the addition of Calvin Ridley are all reasons to doubt whether he can have another productive season in 2024.

Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel Likely To Stay With Niners In 2024

Wednesday, May 1, 2:04 PM

The San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks involving wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel leading up to the draft, but the team elected not to trade either of their star receivers, with all signs pointing toward both being on the 2024 roster. Aiyuk is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and the assumption was that he'd be the odd man out after the team paid Samuel and other star players. Samuel still has two years left on the deal he signed before the 2022 season. San Fran has been to at least the NFC Championship game in four of the last five seasons, and losing Aiyuk or Samuel would almost certainly make the team worse in 2024. The 49ers can afford to keep both this year, but an Aiyuk extension would likely reduce his $14.124 million salary cap number for 2024. Samuel's fantasy value would have likely taken a hit with a move out of the Bay Area.
