The Arizona Cardinals made things official on Friday, announcing their trade with the Houston Texans for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in exchange for running back David Johnson & draft picks.
The Cardinals official website offered these quotes from head coach Kliff Kingsbury:
"To have a young quarterback, a guy you're trying to build things around and bring in a piece like (Hopkins) is huge," coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "Everything I have ever heard about the guy has been top notch, his work ethic, his toughness. To add him to the roster, we couldn't be more pleased."
Kingsbury said he has also texted Murray about the move.
"He's through the roof," Kingsbury said. "He's excited, and he can't wait to get back and get things rolling."
