Patriots signed WR Andrew Hawkins to a one-year, $900,000 contract.
Hawkins says he left money on the table in order to win a championship with the Patriots. Hawkins played a minor role with Cleveland over the last three years, and only finished with 33 catches in 2016. A slot man-only, the 31-year-old has his work cut out to make the Patriots' 53-man roster. Hawkins would likely have to outplay Danny Amendola in training camp to do so. May 24 - 1:13 PM

Free agent WR Andrew Hawkins worked out for the Patriots.

It's his first known visit since his February release. 31-year-old Hawkins was a non-factor in Cleveland the last two years, managing just 97 total targets. He's not a lock to land with a team before training camp.

Free agent WR Andrew Hawkins said he has spoken to "quite a few teams" since his release from the Browns on Monday.

It would be shocking if a new free agent said different. Hawkins added he requested his release several weeks ago. It is an understandable decision considering he has seen just 97 total targets the last two years and the Browns' quarterback situation, but the 31-year-old slot man is unlikely to find a hot market.

Browns released WR Andrew Hawkins.

This was fully expected after Hawkins again played a minor role in Cleveland's offense, amassing 33 catches for 324 yards and three scores. Signed to a four-year deal in 2014, Hawkins had a solid first season with the Browns with a 63-825-2 line on 101 targets. But Hawkins saw just 90 total targets over the past two years. A slot man only at 5'7/180, Hawkins turns 31 in March.

Andrew Hawkins caught 5-of-5 targets for nine yards in the Browns' Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Hawkins should be one of the easiest cuts of the offseason as he enters the final year of his contract in 2017 and is due a $2.6 million salary. Hawkins caught just 33 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns on the season. He's really only on the roster for his veteran leadership and familiarity with the offense.
Jan 1 - 7:50 PM

Andrew Hawkins caught 5-of-8 targets for 31 yards and two touchdowns Week 8 against the Jets.

The touchdowns were Hawkins' second and third of the season after he managed two total from 2013-15. He has still yet to top 56 yards this season. Hawkins can be left on the wire.

Andrew Hawkins secured three-of-four targets for 48 yards Sunday in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

Two of his three catches came in the second half as the Browns tried their hardest to erase a 15-point deficit. Hawkins is technically the No. 2 receiving option with Corey Coleman (hand) sidelined but so far his role hasn’t amounted to much fantasy significance. He can be safely ignored next week against the Bengals.

Andrew Hawkins caught 4-of-7 targets for 56 yards in the Browns' Week 5 loss to the Patriots.

The touchdown was just Hawkins' third in three years as a Brown. He has 12 catches through five games.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Andrew Hawkins will replace Corey Coleman (hand) in the starting lineup.

He'll start opposite Terrelle Pryor in base sets. Hawkins has been a non-factor so far, contributing just three catches for 28 yards on six targets. We're guessing the Browns will attempt to hide rookie quarterback Cody Kessler by going with a run-heavy approach in Week 3. Hawkins is off the fantasy radar.

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins is in danger of getting cut.

Hawkins has had a nondescript training camp, but was Cleveland's No. 4 receiver in the third preseason game. He isn't a lock to make the team over Taylor Gabriel. Cleveland could save $1M in cap space from releasing Hawkins.

Andrew Hawkins caught his lone target for two yards in the Browns' third preseason game.

Hawkins is clearly the Browns' No. 4 receiver behind Corey Coleman, Terrelle Pryor, and Josh Gordon, though he may open up the year as the No. 3 with Gordon suspended the first four games. That's if Hawkins makes the team. The Browns have been purging the roster of veterans, and Hawkins makes $2.5 million. His tight relationship with coach Hue Jackson may save him.

Andrew Hawkins (hamstring) returned to Browns practice on Sunday.

He missed nearly three weeks with the strained hammy. Due to the emergence of Terrelle Pryor and Rashard Higgins behind Corey Coleman -- and eventually Josh Gordon -- it's not crazy to think Hawkins' roster spot is non-secure. We suspect Hawkins will still make the team due to his history with Hue Jackson.

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins suffered a hamstring injury at Tuesday's training camp practice.

Hawkins is trying to return from multiple concussions last season, but now has suffered what sounds like a week to week injury. Hamstring injuries for receivers are easy to aggravate if they return to the field too quickly. Hawkins is the veteran of the receiver group in Cleveland and is viewed as the favorite to open the season as the slot receiver. He missed eight games in 2015.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi pegs Andrew Hawkins and rookie Rashard Higgins as the Browns' likely Nos. 2 and 3 receivers this year.

Other contenders behind first-round pick Corey Coleman include Terrelle Pryor, Taylor Gabriel, and rookie Jordan Payton. Hawkins' veteran standing and Bengals history with Hue Jackson should give him an early leg up. Higgins is a fifth-round pick out of Colorado State. Coleman, Duke Johnson, and Gary Barnidge figure to soak up most of the targets in Cleveland this season.

Andrew Hawkins reported to the Browns’ offseason program.

There were Hawkins retirement rumors after two major concussions last season, but he’ll return for the third year of his deal. Hawkins has a $1 million salary.
