40 pounds lighter since the season ended, Joe Hawley is likely moving on
The Buccaneers decided not to keep center Joe Hawley. Hawley apparently has decided not to keep playing football, in Tampa or anywhere.
Via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Hawley said in a recent radio appearance that he has lost 40 pounds since the end of the season, and that he plans to give up his old life and embark on a new one.
That’s because, this week, Romo is one of them.
The former quarterback, and now analyst for CBS, received a special exemption into this week’s Tour event, opposite of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship where most of the top 64 in the Official World Golf Ranking are playing.
Although it may be odd for the casual sports fan to see Romo’s name in the field, his appearance in a professional golf event is not unprecedented.
Smith starred at weakside linebacker in Kirby Smart’s 3-4 scheme. He made 252 tackles, 20.5 for loss, and 6.5 sacks. He is projected as a first-round pick.
I feel like I can make a tremendous impact on the defense, just with my playmaking ability, my leadership qualities, and everything that I possess as a football player on and off the field, Smith said. I feel like that will definitely elevate any defense.
Jerry Jones: Ezekiel Elliott paid most punishment I have seen for what he did
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has had a quiet offseason, much to the team’s relief.
Everybody can follow along, and hopefully I can inspire people along the way to travel and live their dreams and go after what they want, Hawley said.
Hawley previously went after the dream of playing in the NFL, spending five years with the Falcons and three with the Buccaneers. It’s now time for a new dream, and he’ll be embarking on it in a new body, along with a new van.
As former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo stood on the driving range of the PGA Tour’s Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship earlier this week, the sound of the balls he hit was the same as the shots by golfers adjacent to him, according to those Tour professionals – guys who make their living, week in and week out, on the biggest stage in the sport.
