Hawkins was selected in the second round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals out of the University of Cincinnati.
He spent the first 6 seasons of his career as a member of the Bengals, totaling 384 tackles, 9 interceptions, 1 touchdown, 3 sacks, and 54 passes defended.
He joined the Carolina Panthers as a free agent prior to the 2004 season. He was beset by a knee injury during training camp.
In 2004, Hawkins collected 26 tackles, 1 interception, and 4 passes defended in 14 games. He was released by the Panthers in March after signing a three-year deal the previous offseason.
Throughout his career, Hawkins has been a solid cornerback but he is also a valuable contributor on special teams.
Hawkins worked out for team officials before mini-camp began last week.
