New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Patriots Agree to Terms with Veteran Wide Out Andrew Hawkins

Already loaded at the wide receiver position, the New England Patriots added another layer Wednesday by agreeing to a one-year deal with Andrew Hawkins, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports.

Hawkins confirmed the deal on Uninterrupted, the network developed by LeBron James and his business partner Maverick Carter, saying, “I’m super excited about the opportunity to join the reigning football champions.

I exited Cleveland, and I said it was about joining a contender and the Patriots are the contender, the reigning champs. The program is top-notch and you get the opportunity to play with the best quarterback and the best coach in NFL history.”

Hawkins added that he passed up on deals that “were probably double the compensation” with other teams.

“It’s all about winning for me at this point, and putting myself in the best position to do so. 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.”
