WR - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Uninterrupted is reporting New England Patriots wide receiver Andrew Hawkins has announced his retirement from the NFL.
Despite signing with the Patriots via free agency this offseason, Hawkins, formerly of the Browns, is retiring from the NFL. While playing six years in the league with the Bengals (2011-2013) and Browns (2014-2016), Hawkins accumulated 209 receptions for 2,419 yards receiving and nine touchdowns.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New England Patriots and free agent wide receiver Andrew Hawkins have agreed to terms on a one-year deal.
The Patriots, who've added a boatload of offensive weapons this offseason, aren't finished yet. They signed Hawkins, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year deal Wednesday. With Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola, amongst others, already on the depth chart, Hawkins is not guaranteed to make the final roster come Week 1.
The Cleveland Browns are releasing wide receiver Andrew Hawkins on Monday according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.
The Browns are releasing Hawkins after three seasons with the club. The veteran wideout played in all 16 games in 2016 and accumulated a 33-324-3 stat line while being overshadowed by breakout star Terrelle Pryor. Hawkins will have no problem catching on with a new team for the 2017 campaign.
Andrew Hawkins was slowed by the Cowboys in Week 9, catching just two passes for 13 yards. Dallas went on to beat Cleveland 35-10.
Hawkins scored twice in Week 8, but was unable to repeat his success against Dallas. He has been hit-and-miss this season and isn't prominently involved enough to be trusted on a weekly basis. He will take on Baltimore in Week 10.
