Hankins signed a two-year contract with the Raiders on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hankins signed a one-year deal with the Raiders prior to last season and ended up proving his worth in 2018 after appearing in 15 games and recording 36 total tackles. It was, however, the first time sine 2015 that Hankins failed to record a sack across a single season.
Hankins accounted for nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Colts.
Hankins had amassed just six tackles all season before a nine-tackle performance Sunday, but the starting defensive tackle has yet to record a sack in six games. Hankins also tied his season high in defensive snaps with 57 on Sunday, so he'll look to re-energize before Thursday's tilt against the 49ers.
Hankins accounted for two solo tackles and two fumble recoveries in Sunday's 45-42 overtime win over the Browns.
Hankins had remained relatively quiet in terms of production through his first two games with the Raiders, but he landed on a pair of fumbles to aid in two forced turnovers for the defense Sunday. He'll continue to work alongside rookies P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst at defensive tackle.
Hankins is signing with the Raiders on Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Hankins will join the Raiders prior to Sunday's game against Denver, following an initial report that the 26-year-old would meet with the team. With Justin Ellis (foot) and P.J. Hall (ankle) both questionable for Week 2, Hankins see immediate usage in Oakland's 4-3 defense.
Hankins will visit the Raiders on Wednesday and could sign with the team, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hankins was cut by the Colts in March just one season into a three-year, $27 million contract and remains one of the more accomplished defensive linemen left in on the open market. A second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Hankins spent the first four years of his career in a 4-3 defense with the Giants, the same arrangement that's also favored by the Raiders. If Hankins and the Raiders come to terms, the 26-year-old could see an immediate role on defense with defensive tackles Justin Ellis (foot) and P.J. Hall (ankle) both at risk of missing Sunday's game in Denver.
Hankins visited the Jets' facility on Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.
Hankins is arguably the best defensive lineman left on the market. The Colts cut the defensive tackle loose just one season into a three-year, $27 million contract last month, reportedly because they didn't view Hankins as fast enough to play in their new 4-3 scheme. That criticism is surprising, considering the 2013 second-rounder thrived in the Giants' 4-3 defense during the first four years of his career -- a span that includes a 51-tackle, seven-sack season in 2014. Should Hankins agree to terms with the Jets, he'd likely take over a starting job next to Leonard Williams. Gang Green previously expressed interest in Ndamukong Suh this offseason, so it's clear the Jets are looking to upgrade their defensive line.
Hankins (ankle) was released by the Colts on Saturday.
Hankins had just wrapped up the first season of a three-year, $27 million deal he signed with Indianapolis last offseason. Perhaps the team's new defensive scheme made the big fella a bit more expendable. Either way, Hankins, 25, should draw a sizable market for his services.
Hankins (ankle) had 44 tackles (24 solo) and two sacks in 15 games for the Colts in 2017.
Hankins started 15 games at defensive end for the Colts in the first year of the three-year contract he signed in April 2017. The 25-year-old should serve a similar role on the Indianapolis defense for the 2018 season.
Hankins (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Hankins was a non-participant at practice this week after playing through the injury in last Saturday's loss to the Ravens. Hassan Ridgeway and Anthony Johnson should both see increased snap counts against the Texans in Week 17.
Hankins sat out Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.
Chuck Pagano classified the defensive lineman as day-to-day with the ankle issue, according to George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin. Though he hasn't supplied much pressure on the quarterback with two sacks through 15 games, Hankins is a key run stuffer for the Colts, racking up 44 tackles (24 solo) on the campaign.
Hankins (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday and is cleared for Saturday's game against the Ravens.
Hankins missed practice on Wednesday but will take the field against the Ravens after logging a full practice Thursday. The defensive end is coming off an impressive performance last week against the Broncos in which he registered five tackles (three solo) and one sack.
Hankins (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report.
The severity of Hankins' shoulder injury isn't clear. The Ohio State product has logged the most snaps of any Colts defensive linemen this season, and his potential absence Saturday in Baltimore could cause problems for Indianapolis.
Hankins recorded five tackles (three solo) and one sack Thursday against the Broncos.
Hankins played 54 of 79 defensive snaps Thursday and didn't disappoint. This was just Hankins' second sack of the season, and he now has 13 tackles in his last two games. He'll have a tough time getting to QB Joe Flacco in Week 16, as Flacco ranks ninth in the league in sacks against and is sacked on just 5.1 percent of his dropbacks.
Hankins started at defensive tackle and had two total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Despite an overall poor day from the Indy defense in a 46-9 loss. Hankins fared well against the run as the Colts limited Todd Gurley to just 2.1 yards per carry. Hankins' primary role is to stop the run, but that's a skill that won't produce viable IDP stats for most leagues.
Hankins (shoulder) is back at practice Monday, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.
Hankins had been recovering from a shoulder injury that kept him out of practice last week, but with his return this week, it appears as though it was just a minor ailment. With this being the second injury Hankins has dealt with this preseason, expect the team to remain cautious, considering the start of the regular season is just under two weeks away.
Hankins is dealing with a shoulder injury and has not participated in practice for the last two days, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.
Hankins just recently returned from an ankle injury, but is now dealing with a shoulder ailment that he reportedly suffered earlier this week. Consider Hankins questionable to play in this weekend's preseason game against the Steelers.
Hankins (ankle) is back on the field and could see increased reps in this week's exhibition contest versus the Cowboys, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official website reports.
Hankins, a key offseason pickup, projects to start at defensive end in Week 1. He was held out of the team's preseason opener for precautionary reasons, but appears to be recovering well. Head coach Chuck Pagano indicated Hankins is "doing much better."
Hankins is day-to-day with a mild ankle sprain, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.
Hankins tweaked his ankle during Saturday's scrimmage and was in a boot as of Sunday. Fortunately, he looks to have avoided anything severe and should be back in order within a few days.
Hankins suffered an ankle injury Saturday, George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin reports.
Hankins went down on the first play of Saturday night's scrimmage, according to Zak Keefer of the Indy Star. While the severity of the injury isn't certain, Hankins' left foot was in a boot Sunday. David Parry or Al Woods likely will take his place with the first-team defense until further notice.
Hankins will sign a three-year, $30 million deal with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hankins' deal reportedly includes $14.5 million in guaranteed money. The talented defensive lineman was arguably the best defensive player left in free agency, and while the Colts were originally unlikely to sign him, they eventually decided they were willing to pay him the type money he has wanted for the past couple of months. As a player, Hankins should provide a major boost for the Colts' run defense, which was a bottom-10 group in 2016.
