Andrew Hawkins in play with the Washington Redskins

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Hawkins was tendered the lowest salary with original round compensation. That means another team could swoop in and sign Hawkins to a significant offer sheet.

Ol' Jay Gruden.

The former Bengals offensive coordinator, now the head coach with the Washington Redskins, could poach a Bengals free agent or two -- we've figured the eventuality. Originally the thought was that he had eyes on Anthony Collins, who may sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per a Sunday night report.

Another player that could be in play.

According to John Keim, who covers the Washington Redskins through ESPN's NFL Nation, offers a speculative tweet.

Hawkins was tendered the lowest salary with original round compensation. That means another team could swoop in and sign Hawkins to a significant offer sheet. If the Bengals would decline to match, they receive nothing and lose a receiver -- then suddenly a need surfaces on the team's roster. The New York Jets have also been mentioned.

After posting a career-year with 51 grabs, 533 yards receiving and four touchdowns in 2012, Hawkins only played eight games in 2013 after dealing with a high ankle sprain -- which largely impacted his overall participation.

We like Hawkins, who can be excitable as a threat from anywhere on the field. But losing him only ensures that Mohamed Sanu, who can do more from behind center and as a runner, claims the third spot on the team's 2014 roster. Plus Dane Sanzenbacher becomes relevant.
