ESPN New York doesn't expect the Jets to sign free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.
Hankins visited the Jets after leaving Washington and Detroit without a deal. He has ties to New York from his Giants days, but may not be a great fit on a line that has Leonard Williams and Steve McLendon. With Ndamukong Suh signed, Hankins is the top defensive tackle in free agency. Apr 7 - 3:34 PM

Free agent DT Johnathan Hankins is visiting the Jets on Thursday.

The ex-Colt and Giant recently visited the Redskins and Lions. Arguably the best interior lineman left on the open market, Hankins' release from Indy had more to do with scheme and money than effectiveness.
Apr 5 - 2:11 PM

ESPN's Field Yates reports free agent DTs Johnathan Hankins and Alan Branch will visit the Lions.

Yates adds that fellow free agent DT Sylvester Williams is also on Detroit's radar. Hankins has visited the Redskins in recent days after being cut by the Colts over the weekend. He'd be a great get for whoever lands him.

The Redskins will host free agent DT Johnathan Hankins on Sunday.

They're also visiting with CB Orlando Scandrick. Hankins had a strong 2017 with the Colts and is the top interior lineman available behind Ndamukong Suh. He would be a huge get for a Washington defense that ranked last in the league in stopping the run.
Mar 17 - 7:30 PM

Colts released DT Johnathan Hankins.

This is largely scheme based with the Colts moving to a Tampa-2 defense. Hankins had a solid first year in Indy, but he didn't do much to improve them against the run. The Colts have one of the best cap situations in the league but save $8.5 million from his release. Hankins won't struggle for interest as the top interior lineman available behind Ndamukong Suh. The Titans and Seahawks are possible landing spots.
Mar 17 - 2:29 PM

Colts signed DT Johnathan Hankins, formerly of the Giants, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal includes $14.5 million guaranteed. It's a big get for the Colts' talent-bereft defense, and as big of a loss for the G-Men. Hankins was one of the anchors of New York's top-five run defense last season. The No. 49 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Hankins just turned 25. He's been a bit inconsistent to this point in his career, but put a lot of great football on tape. GM Chris Ballard is off to a solid start in Indy.

The New York Post reports the Giants have a four-year, $28 million offer on the table for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins has continued to shop his wares in hopes of landing something more lucrative, but he's yet to find any serious takers. The Giants' offer is identical to the deal signed by Nick Fairley in New Orleans. Fairley was a better player than Hankins last year, but Hankins is younger with more long-term upside. Ultimately, Hankins' likeliest landing spot remains New York.
Thu, Apr 13, 2017 01:33:00 AM

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts are unlikely to sign free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins left his visit Tuesday without a contract. The Colts have a huge need at nose tackle, but aren't willing to meet Hankins' asking price. With Miami also reportedly out on Hankins, re-signing with the Giants is looking like his most likely landing spot.
Wed, Apr 12, 2017 05:05:00 PM

ESPN's Field Yates reports free agent DT Johnathan Hankins is visiting the Colts.

It's his first-known visit. Easily the top overall player still on the market, Hankins is trying to increase his leverage with the Giants. Still only 25, Hankins would be a big get, both literally and figuratively, for a Colts defense that needs help in every phase. The Colts have close to zero defensive line talent.
Tue, Apr 11, 2017 04:23:00 PM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan has "heard" there is "another team in [the] mix" for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins has been holding out for a better deal than the reported multi-year offer the Giants have had on the table "for weeks," but he has yet to find it. It is possible his agent is spreading rumors of "another team" to get New York to up the offer. Hankins remaining with the Giants still seems like the most likely outcome.
Sat, Apr 8, 2017 09:56:00 AM

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports the Giants have had a multi-year contract offer on the table for free agent Johnathan Hankins "for weeks."

It's not breaking news, but is noteworthy at a time when Hankins' market has otherwise gone cold. Giants beat writers continue to report there's a good chance Hankins will stay in New York, and that still seems the likeliest outcome.
Sun, Mar 26, 2017 10:18:00 PM

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein believes Detroit is a potential landing spot for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

The Lions haven’t been connected to Hankins, but he’s from Detroit and would give them a run-stopper next to Haloti Ngata. With just $10 million in cap space, it’s hard to see them fitting him on a short-term deal. Hankins wants $8M annually.

The New York Post reports there’s a "good shot" free agent DT Johnathan Hankins re-signs with the Giants.

Hankins is holding out for a multi-year contract, but hasn't come close to his $8 million-plus asking price. The Giants cleared some cap space after extending Jason Pierre-Paul ($9 million) and getting pay cuts from Dwayne Harris and Shane Vereen. Returning on a prove-it deal could be Hankins' best chance at cashing in next offseason.
Fri, Mar 24, 2017 05:35:00 PM

According to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, the Dolphins have called free agent DT Johnathan Hankins "at least half a dozen times."

The Dolphins and Giants have been the only teams linked to Hankins, who remains the top free agent left on the market. Miami wants Hankins at its price, but to this point he hasn't been willing to budge and is holding firm in wanting a multi-year contract. It simply doesn't look like it's going to happen for him. If he's willing to take a discount, the Dolphins are waiting with arms wide open.
Wed, Mar 22, 2017 11:11:00 AM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports there has been increased "optimism" free agent DT Johnathan Hankins will re-sign with the Giants.

Hankins is the top defensive lineman left on the market, but he has not found much interest. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants have a standing offer on the table, but "they want an answer" soon. Hankins' best option might be to take a one-year contract and try again next spring.
