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. Mar 22 - 11:11 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.
Mar 21 - 9:31 AM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan believes there's a "50-50" chance of the Giants re-signing free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Even with Bennie Logan and Dontari Poe off the market, Hankins continues to draw little interest. Ranaan believes that every day that he remains unsigned, Hankins has a better chance of returning to New York. The Giants don't have a ton of spending money, but they did receive some cap relief last week when they signed Jason Pierre-Paul to a long-term contract. In all likelihood, Hankins will have to settle for a one-year prove-it deal.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports some teams don't consider free agent DT Johnathan Hankins an impact player.

It explains why teams haven't met his asking price. Hankins is holding out for a multi-year deal at $8-plus million annually, but that's unlikely to happen in the second wave of free agency. Miami and the Giants are the only teams connected to Hankins at this point. Hankins may ultimately have to settle for a prove-it deal.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports free agent DT Johnathan Hankins is seeking more than $10 million per season.

One week into free agency, it's fair to say the market believes Hankins is asking for too much. The Miami Herald reported earlier Thursday that Hankins is adamant about signing a long-term deal. Typically, the money is all gone at this point in free agency, but many teams remain flush with cap space. Hankins, though only 25 this month, seems unlikely to get his desired $10 million per year, but could still come away with a nice chunk of change.
Mar 16 - 2:33 PM

Free agent DT Johnathan Hankins has been holding firm that he wants a multi-year contract.

Hankins, 25 later this month, has surprisingly drawn zero interest since free agency began. Easily one of the best players left on the market, Hankins wants to be a starter at $8 million-plus per year. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reported the Dolphins checked in on Hankins, but he wouldn't accept a one-year offer. Hankins went into this reportedly wanting a five-year deal at $45 million or more. That's highly unlikely to happen at this stage of free agency. Whoever eventually lands Hankins could be getting a bargain.
Mar 16 - 9:17 AM

SNY expects the Giants to "at least make an attempt" to re-sign free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Reporter Ralph Vacchiano believes Hankins could "come close" to Damon Harrison's five-year, $46.25 million contract. If that's the case, the odds that a team already paying Olivier Vernon and hoping to retain Jason Pierre-Paul could keep Hankins are next to none. Going on 25, Hankins is one of the best interior linemen headed to the open market. His relative youth will really work in his favor.

Feb 23 - 8:56 PM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are "genuinely trying to keep the defense intact."

That would mean re-signing both DT Johnathan Hankins and DE Jason Pierre-Paul, who Raanan thinks might draw the franchise tag. Not only would the decision to re-sign both players cost a lot of money, it would tie up a ton of cap space in the defensive line after New York splurged on DE Olivier Vernon and DT Damon Harrison last spring. That said, the foundation of the Giants' defense is the line, and both players are worth the price.

The Giants aren't expected to prioritize re-signing impending free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins is wrapping up his rookie deal, and the Giants may not have the cash to throw at him after handing out big-money deals to fellow defensive linemen RE Olivier Vernon and DT Damon Harrison last year. LE Jason Pierre-Paul is also an impending free agent and is consider more of a priority. Hankins turns 25 in March and was one of the league's best run-stoppers in 2015.
Jan 11 - 11:20 AM

Giants DT Johnathan Hankins (torn pec) said he is "pretty much fully healthy."

Hankins landed on I.R. after tearing his pec last November. The Giants could decide to limit him in the offseason program, but he will be a full-go for training camp. Already quietly one of the NFL's best defensive tackles, Hankins should benefit from the Giants' offseason infusion of defensive line talent.

Giants placed NT Johnathan Hankins on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, ending his season.

The third-year second rounder requires surgery. It's a huge blow for the Giants' already-embattled run defense. Hankins was an every-week starter, and playing most early downs. Jay Bromley will see the biggest increase in snaps alongside Cullen Jenkins in Hankins' absence. Still only 23, Hankins will be in the final year of his rookie contract next season.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 02:19:00 PM

NT Johnathan Hankins left the Giants' Week 9 game against the Buccaneers with a torn pectoral muscle and will not return.

He suffered the injury while forcing a Doug Martin fumble early in the second quarter. Hankins recorded one tackle before exiting.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 05:12:00 PM

Giants third-year NT Johnathan Hankins is "primed for a big season" under new DC Steve Spagnuolo.

"I really like where Hank is," DL coach Robert Nunn said. "He had some legit numbers. He’s got a chance to be a solid player for a long time in this league." The Giants are expecting Hankins to build off his breakout sophomore season, where he posted 51 tackles, seven sacks, and 12 QB hits as a 16-game starter. He was a major part of New York's late-season pass rush success. Hankins will also play a key role in turning around one of the league’s worst run defenses.

Giants second-year NT Johnathan Hankins has "taken a pretty big leap over the summer" and is expected to play heavy snaps in the defensive tackle rotation.

Hankins, Cullen Jenkins, and Mike Patterson are expected to play the bulk of the snaps in the middle with third-round rookie Jay Bromley and Markus Kuhn fighting for scraps. Hankins will be replacing Linval Joseph as the starting nose tackle. He received positive marks at PFF for his run defense as a rookie.
Fri, Jul 18, 2014 10:22:00 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants "have been raving" about the development of second-year DT Johnathan Hankins.

A 2013 second-round pick, Hankins debuted as a rotational run-stopper. He's the favorite to replace Linval Joseph at nose tackle and has potential for a sophomore leap. Hankins should start next to Cullen Jenkins inside, with a rotation of Mathias Kiwanuka and Damontre Moore bookending Jason Pierre-Paul.
