Jalen Ramsey has jokes about DeAndre Hopkins leaving the NFC West the same offseason as him.

The Los Angeles Rams traded Ramsey earlier this offseason to the Miami Dolphins. Now, Hopkins is on his way out of the West, and Ramsey looks like he wouldn’t mind seeing a familiar face in the same division.

“I leave a division, Hop leave the division too,” Ramsey wrote on Twitter. “Kinda seems like it’s meant to be that way now. Hop still a top WR! Let’s see where he goes.”

These two started their battles back in 2016 apart of the AFC South. Then, after Ramsey went to the Rams, Hopkins went to the Cardinals less than a year later. The two have lined up against each other over ten times and have the utmost respect for each other as competitors.

“I ain’t got nothing but respect for D-Hop,” said Ramsey back in 2021.

“He’s my favorite corner to go against. The best DB I ever went against, yet,” said Hopkins.

Now, Hopkins is a free agent, and a few AFC East teams are in the mix to land the All-Pro receiver. The Bills and the Patriots both make sense for Hopkins which means there’s a chance we get to see these two continue to matchup twice a year.

The Bills and Dolphins met in the playoffs last season and the Bills won 34-31. Now, it looks like these two are set to be in the mix again come January. Hopkins also said he would love to play with a quarterback like Josh Allen.

The AFC East, on paper, looks like the most competitive division in the NFL. The Bills, Patriots, and Dolphins all have Super Bowl aspirations. In addition, the Patriots are also a team expecting to be in playoff contention.

Hopkins looks like he’s going to take his time and have fun with his free agency. However, if he heads to the AFC East, he’ll see a familiar face two times a year.
