NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Former Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is set to visit with the Tennessee Titans this weekend during his first free agency visit, according to NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero.

“Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins is slated to fly to Nashville on Sunday for a visit with the #Titans, per sources,” Tom Pelissero tweeted on Wednesday.

Hopkins and Titans head coach Mike Vrabel were with the Texans franchise at the same time. D-Hop and Mike Vrabel were together in Houston. Now Vrabel’s team gets the first visit with Hopkins, the five-time Pro Bowl pick released by Arizona last month.

“We really just want people that want to be here,” Vrabel said on Wednesday. “Then if that works out, you go onto the next step. So, this will be pretty much it until we either sign or don’t sign the next player.”

Vrabel confirmed Hopkins is meeting with the Titans later this week or early next week.

Second-year player Treylon Burks, who could end up as the Titans number one receiver, said he loves the receiver group the Titans have now, but has always admired Hopkins.

“He would be a great mentor, you know, I’ve watched D-Hop since I was younger, he’s one of my favorite players,” Burks said.

Burks, who was the Titans first round pick in 2022, already feels this summer like he’s enjoying the game more. In his rookie season, he says he put too much pressure on himself, and this year, is focused on having more fun.

“I mean my confidence is out the roof, I want to just have fun and play for the Titans,” Burks said.
