McPherson High graduate Tanner Hawkinson is on the move.

Hawkinson on Monday signed a contract with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 6-5 and 300-pounder spent this past season with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. He started his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hawkinson was selected in the fifth round by the Bengals in 2013. He played in one game that season and three in his following year. He saw action in two games with the Eagles last year before going to San Francisco, which released him last week.

Hawkinson was a four-year starter at the University of Kansas and earned second-team Big 12 honors his senior year in 2012.
