Joe Hawley retired from NFL. Then he moved into van and hit road in search of new path

Joe Hawley retired from NFL. Then he moved into van and hit road in search of new path More When former Buccaneers and Falcons center Joe Hawley left the game of football, he decided to sell his possessions, buy a van and hit the road with his dog. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — For eight years, Joe Hawley’s life followed an inescapable rhythm — the monotony of practice, film study and offseason workouts, all of it on a seemingly endless loop. The NFL dictated where he had to be and what he had to do. It wrecked his body. It consumed his life. It’s very structured. My whole life has been like that, Hawley says.

Jamar Taylor reinvigorated his career with the Cleveland Browns over the past two seasons. Cleveland acquired him from the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2016 season, and the former Boise State star has started 29 games since.

However, new Browns general manager John Dorsey is looking to remake Cleveland’s secondary.

The fact that Ingram will now be suspended for the first four games of the season obviously won’t do him any favors on the negotiating table. Moreover, the Saints have reigning Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara ready to step up and make up for Ingram’s production, both in the first four games and moving forward.

If the Colts deem Turbin expendable, they would save north of $1.1 million by releasing him. Turbin, who won’t turn 29 until December, should garner interest from other teams if Indianapolis does cut him.

Defensive tackle Eli Ankou made his way to the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent last year and managed to carve out a reserve role. He appeared in nine games and produced 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

While those weren’t eye-popping numbers, the fact Ankou even earned a spot in Jacksonville’s talented defensive line rotation is a testament to his talent. He was sharing time with the likes of Malik Jackson, Marcell Dareus, Abry Jones and Calais Campbell.
