Minor Roster Tweak

by: Michael Steffes

After entertaining several players for tryouts this weekend, the Hawks decided to keep one on board. Kevin Brown of UCLA, a 6-2, 290, DT. In order to make room the team released DT Kelly Tavalou.

Brown is pretty solid player. I have had a chance to watch several UCLA games in recent time. He seems to get good pressure from the inside. He will be a long shot to make the Hawks, but he will be a good candidate for the practice squad. He will add some depth to the 3-tech tackles. With Rocky Bernard in the last year of his contract, the team will likely be looking at players in the mold of Brown throughout the season.

No word yet on who else the team may keep, but they released Omawale Dada over the weekend, so they should have an open spot. END
