Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson would love to have DeAndre Hopkins in Cleveland

DeAndre Hopkins to the Browns? Well, if Deshaun Watson was in charge it seems like it would be a reality. Watson said that he would love to have Hopkins in Cleveland in addition to stating that the two have kept in touch over the past years.

Watson also noted that it is out of his range of things, so this does not appear any type of Aaron Rodgers-esque situation with his pass catchers. Dictating who the team employs at the receiver position would be one heck of a power play from Watson considering how he looked last season.

Recent reports have stated that the Browns are not a major contender Hopkins at the moment. There is that saying about smoke and fire… until Hopkins signs elsewhere the connection with Deshaun Watson is going to keep the Browns at least mentioned as a possibility.

If Hopkins were to end in up Cleveland it would add to an already full receiver room. While the longterm presence of a few players is something to consider beyond just this season (Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones), it would make evaluating their younger players, (such as David Bell and Cedric Tillman),a bit more difficult without them seeing meaningful playing time. But with this regime knowing they have to be substantially better this year or else they are out of a job, they could focus on the immediate impact that Hopkins would have on this team.
