Bengals Claim Artrell Hawkins Younger Brother Off Waivers

Andre Caldwell, the Cincinnati Bengals most experienced wide receiver, has 855 yards receiving on 87 receptions, leading a roster of inexperience though explosive with talent. With so much inexperience at wide receiver and a rookie quarterback starting the first regular season game of the year for the first time since Greg Cook in 1969, we have absolutely no idea what to expect when the season kicks off.

So it makes sense that the Bengals claimed wide receiver Andrew Hawkins from the St. Louis Rams on Monday.
