Coronavirus: New Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins makes Arizona donation

DeAndre Hopkins may not have played an NFL game as a Cardinal yet, but he has already made a donation to Arizona's coronavirus relief fund.

Four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Hopkins was stunningly traded to the Cardinals by the Houston Texans last week in a deal which netted his former franchise David Johnson.

Fans hoping to see Hopkins in red and white at State Farm Stadium will have to wait until August at the earliest, though, when the NFL preseason begins.

However, that has not stopped Hopkins from making a sizeable donation to his new state's COVID-19 fund, set up to cope with the impact of the global pandemic on the region.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Hopkins said: "To my new AZ family, I can't wait until everything settles down so I can get out there and play in front of you all.

"Until then I wanted to do my part for my new community and donate $150,000 to the Arizona Coronavirus Relief Fund."

Hopkins, a first-round pick in 2013, had 8,602 receiving yards and 54 touchdowns across seven seasons with the Texans.

The Cardinals hope his acquisition can help quarterback Kyler Murray in his second year, with last year's first overall pick in the draft having won the Rookie of the Year award in 2019 when Arizona went 5-10-1.
