Washington Redskins[edit | edit source]

Hanks was signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2012.[3] He was waived-injured on August 13 due to suffering a shoulder injury when making a diving catch during training camp.[4][5][6] After not being claimed off waivers, Hanks was officially put on the team's injured reserve list.[7][8]

In April 2013, Hanks was waived after failing a physical.[9]
