The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought Joe Hawley back for another two -season. The Bucs made the announcement today that Joe Hawley will be back with a two-year $5.75 million contract that includes $1.25 million guaranteed.
The former Falcon turned Buc got his start at center for the Bucs in 2015 after taking the role from the injured Evan Smith, although it would be returned to Smith the following season.
It was curious that mum was the word about Hawley’s free agency, but not at all surprising that the first word of it would be his return to Tampa. Welcome back, Hawley! You and your wicked cool beard.
