On April 4, the Jaguars claimed tackle Tanner Hawkinson off waivers from the Eagles. Now, Hawkinson has decided to call it quits.

Via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Hawkinson announced his retirement on Friday. The Jaguars said that the decision wasn’t injury related.

A fifth-round pick of the Bengals in 2013, Hawkinson appeared in four games over two years with Cincinnati. He spent time on the 49ers practice squad in 2015 after being released by the Bengals on September 5 and clearing waivers. The Eagles signed Hawkinson in October, and he appeared in a pair of games.

The Eagles waived Hawkinson on April 1.
