According to Schefter, the trade details are still being finalized, but the Cardinals will receive Hopkins and a late-round pick for Johnson and a second-round pick.

Since going in the first round of the 2013 draft, Hopkins has dominated at the National Football League level - coming off of three first-team All-Pro seasons in a row with former Clemson QB Deshaun Watson manning the Texans offense. Regardless, he's on his way to Arizona, and as much as it's going to sting to see him away from Deshaun Watson, he landed in a great spot with an uptempo team lacking a true No. 1 receiver.

However, Houston is starving for draft picks and has ample needs up and down the roster.

Since Gordon is an Indianapolis native and a fan of the rival Colts, who play in the same division as the Texans, he probably wasn't as disappointed to hear the news as most others were around Houston. Obviously, the main takeaway is that Hopkins will now get the contract extension he wanted, as he joins forces with Rookie of the Year QB Kyler Murray.

Then again, the 2020 draft class is considered one of the deepest ever for wide outs, which could hinder Hopkins' value. After all, Houston is without a first-round pick in this year's draft.

Now the 28-year-old running back gets a fresh start in Houston, where Carlos Hyde, now a free agent, revitalized his career last season (1,070 yards, 4.4 yards per carry). If trading Hopkins is a sign Houston wants to be even more balanced on offense, that could mean big things for Johnson.
