Giants considering DeAndre Hopkins.

DeAndre Hopkins' potential suitors are well-known, but more clubs will likely investigate signing the All-Pro wideout. 

That group includes the New York Giants. Hopkins is now a free agent after being released by the Cardinals.

Given his words and the value he would provide to any team's passing offense, many Super Bowl contenders, notably in the AFC, have been linked to him during the offseason.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are the favorites to sign him, but a Browns deal with Deshaun Watson might also happen.

On Wednesday, head coach Brian Daboll stated the Giants would consider Hopkins.

 GM Joe Schoen worked on Odell Beckham Jr. last summer and throughout his year-long free agency. 

he Ravens signed the latter, while the Giants focused on their pass-catchers.

Like last year, anytime there’s someone that’s available that’s a free agent, I’d say Joe and his staff are gonna look into it, research it.

 “We discuss many players. We must perform our due diligence regardless of who it is.

 They added former Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell and kept Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, and Sterling Shepard.

Hopkins, a five-time Pro Bowler, has more experience than the rest of the receivers. Leonard said the Giants were one of a "handful" of clubs likely to pursue the 30-year-old.

New York, like Kansas City and Buffalo, has $3.8M in cap space.

The Giants also need to extend Saquon Barkley, which may be a longer-term priority. Thus, they are not Hopkins frontrunners yet.
