Andrew Hawkins announces his retirement

25 Juillet 2017

In the old days, National Football League veterans would hold a press conference to announce their retirement.

Patriots receiver Andrew Hawkins announced his retirement from football on Tuesday.

So the 31-year-old veteran posted a video on the UNINTERRUPTED Twitter account to announce he is calling it a career. He called the Patriots and informed them of his choice on Tuesday. "After OTAs and through the summer training, my body just didn't respond and wasn't feeling the way it should going into camp - for training camp, let alone with the defending world champions".

The city tried again to ban carrying weapons, a law also struck down by the courts in 2014, and now is trying a third time. We are bound to leave the District as much space to regulate as the Constitution allows - but no more.

Undrafted out of Toledo, Hawkins caught on with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. He helped the team win consecutive Grey Cup championships.

Hawkins never played for the Patriots, having just signed with them in free agency this offseason. In three seasons with the franchise, the 5-foot-7 wideout caught 123 passes for 1,424 yards and 5 touchdowns. "As I told them, I was just appreciative of the opportunity to come in there and work with an organization as storied as they are".

"To all the fans out there ... thank you for cheering for us, supporting us and rooting for us all these years", Hawkins said.
