Hawkins has agreed to a one-year deal with the Patriots, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Hawkins split the 2023 regular season with the Falcons (six games) and Chargers (10 games), en route to combining for 14 tackles in that span. The 2020 fourth-rounder did rack up 84 tackles and two picks for Atlanta in 2022, but with the Patriots Hawkins figures to serve as a depth safety behind Jabrill Peppers and Kyle Dugger.

Headed to Los Angeles

The Chargers claimed Hawkins off of waivers Wednesday.

Hawkins will now head to Los Angeles after being waived by the Falcons on Tuesday. The 26-year-old could soon see playing with Alohi Gilman dealing with a heel injury.

Cut by Falcons

Atlanta cut Hawkins on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Hawkins apparently took a step back after playing a major role for the Falcons' defense in 2022, and he's mostly been relegated to special teams duties through six games in 2023. Now he's set to become a free agent, leaving Atlanta with just three safeties on their 53-man roster.

Could operate as reserve in 2023

Hawkins currently projects to be a reserve option in the Falcons' secondary in 2023, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Hawkins seems destined to back up Richie Grant at strong safety in 2023 after Atlanta signed free safety Jessie Bates in March. Hawkins was a very productive starter in 2022, recording 84 tackles, six pass deflections, two interceptions and a forced fumble while scoring a defensive touchdown over 16 games.

Solid as first-year starter

Hawkins produced 84 tackles (45 solo), six pass defenses, two interceptions, one forced fumble and a defensive touchdown across 16 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

After being a rotational piece in 2021, Hawkins earned a starting gig to begin 2022 and made the most of his opportunity by submitting a productive campaign. He missed just one game due to injury and recorded a career-high 84 tackles and six pass defenses. He also notched multiple interceptions for a second straight season and recorded his first career defensive touchdown. Barring an unforeseen change, Hawkins figures to start alongside Richie Grant to open the 2023 campaign, which will be the final year of Hawkins' rookie contract.
