1. The NY Jets could trade for DeAndre Hopkins

No. 1 on this list for a reason, DeAndre Hopkins should be the guy now that Beckham has signed with the Ravens.

His accolades speak for themselves. A five-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro, Hopkins has totaled over 11,000 yards and 71 touchdowns in his career. Between 2014 and 2020, he recorded 1,000-yard seasons six out of seven times, and in 2017, he led the NFL in receiving touchdowns.

Within that time frame, he was considered one of the best players in the entire league, and although the last two years for him in Arizona have not been plain sailing, Hopkins becoming a Jet would be massive.

His 2021 and 2022 have been heavily altered by injury and suspension, but despite playing in just nine games last year, Hopkins recorded 717 receiving yards. His production when he steps on the field is still special, despite him being north of 30.

With the draft capital the Jets would need to give up for a trade seemingly low, this deal is a very real possibility, with the Jets reportedly interested.

The only concerns with Hopkins would be his cap hit, age, and health, but these are worries that can be easily overlooked due to Hopkins' talent and superstar production.

If Joe Douglas is truly serious about an all-in plan to win in 2023, a Hopkins trade should be the next place to go.
