(SI.COM) – Former Cocoa Tiger and Louisville Cardinals running back Javian Hawkins has been signed to the Los Angeles Rams practice squad, the organization announced Monday.
He has the potential to be reunited with former Cardinals teammate wide receiver Tutu Atwell, who was drafted in the second round by Los Angeles earlier this year and made the 53-man roster as the primary punt returner.
After going unselected in the 2021 NFL Draft, the 5-foot-9, 196-pound speedster was immediately picked up by the Atlanta Falcons.
However, he was given very few reps in the preseason, rushing ten times for 48 yards in two preseason games, and eventually waived during training camp.
