Yesterday the Cincinnati Bengals were expected to sign a deal to keep Andrew Hawkins in Cincy, but after the details of the contract came out it seems the Bengals will not match.
B/c of the structure of Andrew Hawkins’ now-signed offer sheet with the Browns, I’m told the Bengals rethought things, now unlikely to match

Colleague @RapSheet had details on Hawkins’ offer sheet earlier: $10.8M over first two years on a four-year, $13.6M deal. Browns stepped up.

The Browns were hot on Edelman’s trial but it could have just cooled down.
