(Cleveland) - The Cleveland Browns has signed restricted free-agent receiver Andrew Hawkins from the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals failed to match an offer sheet the Browns offered to the former Toledo Rocket star.
The 5-7, 180 pounds Hawkins is the sixth player signed by the Browns this free agent period.
He started his career with a tryout invitation to the 2008 Browns rookie mini-camp. In 35 games with the Bengals, Hawkins had 86 catches for 995 yards and four touchdowns.
