Chiefs Waive DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste & G Corin Brooks, Sign Two Including OT Donald Hawkins

The Kansas City Chiefs officially waived DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste and G Corin Brooks on Thursday signed DB Trevon Hartfield and OT Donald Hawkins.

Jean-Baptiste, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Saints back in 2014. He lasted just over a year in New Orleans before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later signed to the lions’ practice squad.

The Seahawks signed him towards the end of the 2015 season and brought him back on a future/reserve contract. However, Seattle declined to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent this past March.

The Chiefs later signed him to a contract a month ago.

In 2014, Jean-Baptiste appeared in four games for the Saints, but didn’t record a single statistic.

Hawkins, 25, originally signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in May of 2015. He was unable to make the team’s final 53-man roster but was later claimed the Browns.

Hawkins had brief stints with the Browns, Cowboys, and 49ers before signing a future’s deal with the Panthers back in January of last year. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was waived in November and later signed to their practice squad.

In 2016, Hawkins was active for six games.
