  10 most questionable signings of NFL free agency: Jets, Jaguars among teams with confounding moves The NFL's first wave of free agency is over, and these high-priced contracts might leave teams with buyer's remorse in the near future.

The Texans agreed to trade DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals , with the top part of the return package for Houston being David Johnson . So, why is that? According to ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio, the players have yet to pass their physicals . “As one source explained it to PFT, Johnson has

Tested out the David Johnson - DeAndre Hopkins trade on ⁦@EAMaddenNFL⁩. As for the Cardinals , this trade appears to have worked out beautifully and sets up the team’s burgeoning offense, and quarterback Kyler Murray, for a huge leap in 2020.

The fact that the biggest trade of the NFL offseason hasn’t been finalized probably isn’t a big deal.

And yet, the Arizona Cardinals will probably be happy when it’s done.

The Cardinals acquired All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins from the Houston Texans for running back David Johnson and a second-round pick. The team also swapped fourth-round picks. The Texans are getting a 2021 fourth-round pick and the Cardinals get a 2020 fourth-round pick. And for weeks, everyone ripped the Texans for a bad trade and most of us never stopped to wonder if the deal was officially complete.

DeAndre Hopkins - David Johnson trade is getting complicated. It remains unlikely that either player fails their physical outright, but it does give both teams a potential out, or at the very least, recourse for Texans coach and de facto general manager O’Brien to renegotiate with Cardinals general manager

It’s not. But the Cardinals aren’t worried, coach Kliff Kingsbury said.

Big Texans-Cardinals trade needs to be finalized

In yet another example of how coronavirus restrictions are affecting things we never usually think about in the NFL world, physical exams have not been completed on the Hopkins-Johnson trade.

The trade was agreed to on March 16, but an announcement couldn’t be made at the time. The Cardinals acknowledged the deal by tweeting that media reports said they had acquired Hopkins. They have since discussed the addition of Hopkins on their official Twitter feed in various ways. Texans coach Bill O’Brien has talked openly about the trade.

Kingsbury spoke with the Arizona media on Tuesday and said he wasn’t worried.

Texans put a happy face on offseason moves

  Texans put a happy face on offseason moves Texans coach and general manager Bill O'Brien broke his silence on the team's unpopular trade of All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals in exchange for former All-Pro running back David Johnson. In a town hall conference call with season ticket holders Friday that included Texans chairman and chief operating officer Cal McNair and executive vice president of team development Jack Easterby, O'Brien explained the reasoning behind trading one of the top receivers in the league. "I would say the deal with Arizona was a deal that we felt was in the best interest of our team," O'Brien said.

Perhaps it’s nothing to be worried about. But nothing in the NFL is official until all the red tape has been sifted through. We have seen a couple of free-agent contracts nixed long after they were reported due to physical exams.

And the NFL draft, with those picks that were supposed to change hands, isn’t that far off.

Players need to finish physicals

Even though the Texans have been ripped mercilessly over the past few weeks, there’s no reason to think they’d want out of the deal. They made it voluntarily, after all. Nothing has changed for them.

David Johnson , picks swapped in Cardinals ' trade for DeAndre Hopkins . The trade can not become official until the new league year opens Mar. 18. The deal is the latest in a series of moves made by Ngakoue, 24, has recorded 38.5 sacks and 15 forced fumbles over the course of his career.

Pro Football Talk said Johnson has seen a doctor for an exam on his wrist, and he passed. Johnson needs to complete a full physical.

Theoretically, if either player fails the physical, his new team could call the trade off.

At very least, the trade needs to be finalized before the draft or the teams would have to rework the deal. The draft is scheduled to start April 23. Team facilities aren’t open and players can’t visit for physicals with team doctors, though they can visit doctors local to them.

It makes sense that the controversial trade still has an unfinished chapter.
