Although it’s not official, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins announced via social media he will be signing with the Patriots.

The roster was already full, so in order to add Hawkins they would need to release a player and it appears that came on Wednesday as the team released wide receiver Devin Street.

The Patriots claimed Street off waivers on May 2. Street appeared in five games for the Colts last season and caught one pass for 20 yards.

Hawkins, who plays the slot, faces an uphill battle for a roster spot, but does provide the team good depth in the event of an injury during training camp.
