The New England Patriots have added some more depth to their wide receiver core on Wednesday afternoon by agreeing to terms with former Cleveland Brown Andrew Hawkins.

Hawkins broke the news via a video post on the Uninterrupted website and cited that winning was a priority in the decision.  New England is coming off a Super Bowl win this past February and is the odds on favorite to win the championship again this season.

The wide receiver played in 16 games with Cleveland in 2016 and recorded 33 receptions with 324 yards.  He has played in parts of six seasons in the NFL between Cincinnati and Cleveland, with his best year coming in 2014 where Hawkins nabbed 63 receptions for 824 yards.  Before joining the NFL, Hawkins played two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL and won two Grey Cup Championships.

Hawkins will join Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Hogan, Brandin Cooks, and others as members of the WR core in New England.
