Former Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins revealed Wednesday that he signed with the Patriots after passing up on deals from other teams that “were probably double the Cheap Girls Softball Jerseys compensation.”
“It’s all about winning for me at this point, and putting myself in the best position to do so,” he said on Uninterrupted. “I have my work cut out for me, it’s an opportunity, and that’s how I’m approaching it: Go in there, seeing how I stack up with the best, and try to earn my keep and prove my worth. Hopefully I can be a part of something special and kind of join that Patriots legacy.”
The scene features “him” working out with other Patriots receivers.
Hawkins started his career for the Bengals and has played his last three seasons with the Browns. He has shown talent as a slot receiver in the past with his best year being in 2014 when he caught 63 passes for 824 yards. His stats may not have been spectacular, but Hawkins meant a lot to the Browns, as evidenced by the kind words Hue Jackson said in a statement after his release this offseason.
