WR Andrew Hawkins agrees to one-year deal with Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Already loaded at the wide receiver position, the New England Patriots added another layer on Wednesday by agreeing to a one-year deal with Andrew Hawkins.

Hawkins confirmed the deal on Uninterrupted, 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.
