James Conner supports DeAndre Hopkins with ‘FREE DHOP’ shirt

Aug 12, 2022, 2:55 PM | Updated: 3:48 pm

Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner rolled into Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati before the team’s preseason debut against the Bengals with a “FREE DHOP” shirt, supporting teammate and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

The shirt is one that former All-Pro wideout Dez Bryant tweeted out earlier this month. You can buy one for yourself if you feel so inclined.

Hopkins is set to serve a six-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, which he says is due to 0.134% of Ostarine being found in his blood while the threshold is 0.100%.

The 30-year-old in late June denied any intentional use and maintained it was a contaminant, noting it can sometimes find its way into shampoo, and that he is not one to take supplements.

“I’ve never taken any of that kind of stuff,” Hopkins said. “If you know about what it is, it can be in shampoo, it can be in a lot of different things. Obviously the NFL is very black and white, so of course, I wish the rule wasn’t so black and white. It is what it is.

“It’s hard to know when something gets contaminated at a trace amount when you’re not working at the manufacturing company.”

Kickoff between the Bengals and Cardinals is set for 4:30 p.m. MST and you can catch the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
