Stephon Gilmore wasn’t the only New England Patriot to have conversation with Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

The 28-year-old recorded an underwhelming five catches for 55 yards in a 20-17 loss to New England in Week 12. He’s widely respected as one of the league’s best receivers and he’s nearly recorded 1,000 yards after 11 games played this season. If Hopkins wasn’t blanketed by the reigning Defense Player of the Year, he likely would’ve done much more against the Patriots.

Bill Belichick has always respected Hopkins and he had a quick conversation with him after the win. Patriots fans on Twitter immediately made speculation about Hopkins potentially joining up in New England.

Here’s how fans felt.
