For weeks now, there have been many rumblings about the Buffalo Bills adding another big-name weapon before the 2023 NFL Draft opens up.
That weapon, specifically, is current Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The 3-time All Pro has been on the trade block for a good chunk of time now, this offseason, and Arizona wants to either move him or they will end up releasing him if they can’t find a trade partner.
Buffalo, at one point, was the odds-on favorite to land Hopkins by multiple betting outlets. Since then, there were reports that came out and deflated any momentum in that direction, as well as disappointing fans when they heard the Bills were no longer in the running for the 5-time Pro Bowl wide receiver.
But, tides may be turning once more, according to Bills pass rusher Von Miller. The veteran quarterback-sacker went on the Pat McAfee Show this week and might have let the cat out of the bag when it comes to his team’s next move.
Did Buffalo Bills pass rusher Von Miller drop the hint that DeAndre Hopkins will indeed be joining the team?
After dropping the hint, Miller went on to say that the Bills “missed out on OBJ,” and that this roster is a very talented one which could be attractive to a one named Hopkins.
Just a few days ago, a video leaked of Hopkins being interviewed by a media personality, asking him to silently react to different teams based on his preference in joining said teams. When the Bills were brought up, Hopkins’ eyes went from normal to devilishly intrigued.
Between Hopkins’ reaction in that video and Miller’s words on McAfee’s show, maybe the odds are turning back in Buffalo’s favor to acquire the stud wide receiver.
If they did, you could pencil this team into the AFC Championship Game right now, because that’s the missing piece. No defense is going to be able to defend both Hopkins and Stefon Diggs while accounting for Josh Allen’s legs.
It’s all dependent upon Buffalo’s defense from here on out, if a move like this happens. 2023 is going to be Super Bowl or bust, Bills Mafia.
