Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Buccaneers are declining their $2.5 million option for 2018 on center Joe Hawley.

However, a source tells Pelissero that the Bucs haven’t closed the door on bringing Hawley back, but he will at least get the opportunity to test the free agent market.

Hawley, 29, was taken in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Falcons.
