The Texans made the move last month to send All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals. Houston reportedly got running back David Johnson and some draft picks in return for the standout wideout.
According to a report from Profootballtalk.com The deal has not been made official. He reports that neither Hopkins nor Johnson have passed their physicals yet.
Multiple draft picks were involved in the deal – a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 fourth-round pick to the Texans; a 2020 fourth-round pick to the Cardinals – so it needs to be finalized before the NFL Draft later this month.
If it doesn’t get finalized..that could be a problem
“Put simply, if Johnson or Hopkins fail their physicals, the trade will be off. As a practical matter, that gives both the Texans and the Cardinals an out, if they want to avoid the deal — and if they can persuade their doctors to give either guy an “F” on his physical,” Florio writes.
