NFL contender may miss DeAndre Hopkins sweepstakes.

Hopkins stated he wants a quality team with a talented quarterback to play with in the playoffs, but one club that meets that category looks to be out on the Pro Bowler.

After acquiring Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers in a blockbuster deal, the New York Jets are now a postseason contender after 12 seasons without a playoff appearance.

On Wednesday, Robert Saleh dismissed a query about Hopkins joining the team.

"We love our current group," Saleh told The New York Post of the team's receivers. "I know there was some stuff with Odell [Beckham Jr.], but other than that, we love our group."

Beckham signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens to play alongside Lamar Jackson, bypassing the Jets.

Considering the Jets' receivers, Saleh's claim appears plausible.

First, Garrett Wilson earned Offensive Rookie of the Year last year despite quarterback changes between Zach Wilson, Mike White, and Joe Flacco. 

With Rodgers directing the offense, he should prosper.
