Where would Baby Hawk fit in?

The Bengals are expected to match Cleveland's offer sheet to the slot receiver.

The Bengals are expected to match Cleveland’s offer sheet to the slot receiver.

In the wee hours of the night, Adam Schefter Tweeted this out:

Assuming this is true, it’s interesting to consider what this means for the direction of the Bengals offense. Hawkins will make that guaranteed money over the next two seasons, so the team clearly would have plans for him should he return. But with the expected shift to a more run-focused attack, the amount of balls for all receivers — Hawkins, A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Mo Sanu, Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert — should decline.

I’m on record saying that I’d like to see the team retain Hawkins because he offers something to this team in terms of playmaking ability in the open field that only Giovanni Bernard can compare to. It seems the Bengals view him the same way. Why else would they give $5mil guaranteed to a fourth receiver?

Those chunk plays where a receiver makes something out of nothing are always big lifts and hopefully Hawkins stays healthy and continues to make those plays for the Bengals for the next four years.
