Though the package they got in return for him was pretty universally panned, one of the reasons that some think that Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals this offseason was because he may soon ask for a pay raise, one it may have been hard for them to accommodate with a new deal for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and one looming for quarterback Deshaun Watson.

If Hopkins does soon ask for a new deal, it would be hard to fault the 27-year-old. Despite being an All-Pro for three consecutive seasons, Hopkins will make just the 11th most overall money among wide receivers in 2020, at $12.5 million. Given the Hall of Fame pace he's on, it's clear that Hopkins has outperformed his current contract.

As Hopkins waits on a new deal that feels inevitable, let's take a look at the 10 wide receivers who will make more than him in 2020, courtesy of Spotrac:
