The Cincinnati Bengals are being vigilant to know all that is knowable regarding available players.

Though there appears to be some momentum in regards to the rehabilitation of injured cornerbacks, the Cincinnati Bengals tried out cornerback Chris Hawkins recently, according to Aaron Wilson.

Hawkins, out of LSU, played nine games with the Tennessee Titans last year, recording 14 tackles on defense and another eight stops on special teams. Before the Titans, Hawkins made stops with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent and Baltimore Ravens as a free agent. At LSU Hawkins started 24 games, generating 110 tackles, five interceptions and 19 pass breakups.

We doubt that the team is checking out Hawkins for the 53-man roster, rather a potential spot on the practice squad that was left open following Chris Lewis-Harris' promotion to the practice squad last week.

UPDATE: CBA rules state that eligibility is defined as less than nine games during only accrued season, so he'd be ineligible.

And no. We don't know if he's related to Andrew and Artrell.
