Tom E. Curran breaks down how the New England Patriots high expectations from the media could be used to their benefit.
Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, who signed with the Patriots in May, announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday.
Hawkins obviously never suited up for a game with the Pats, but he played for the Bengals from 2011-13 and the Browns from 2014-16. The 31-year-old accumulated 209 receptions for 2,419 yards over the course of his short career.
He announced his decision to retire on Twitter via UNINTERRUPTED, noting his body has not felt the way it should through OTAs and the summer. As for what he has planned after football, he will pursue his Ph.D. in economics.
