  Chargers | Week 12 Inactives    Sun Nov 24, 11:42 AM

The San Diego Chargers have declared QB Brad Sorensen, SS Brandon Taylor, LB Jarret Johnson, OT King Dunlap, DL Kwame Geathers, WR Lavelle Hawkins, OT Willie Smith inactive for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Dunlap's absence is a big problem for a Chargers offensive line that had been righting the ship after a terrible 2012. The Chiefs are going to make it hard for Philip Rivers get much going downfield today on third downs.

The San Diego Chargers have declared LB Adrian Robinson, QB Brad Sorensen, SS Brandon Taylor, OT King Dunlap, DL Kwame Geathers, WR Lavelle Hawkins, OT Mike Remmers inactive for Week 11.

Footballguys view: The loss of Dunlap is a bit concerning against a defense that features Cameron Wake. This could be a defensive battle even though both teams feature QB-centric offenses.

  Chargers | Roster moves    Tue Oct 1, 06:55 PM

The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent WR Lavelle Hawkins (49ers) and elevated LB Thomas Keiser from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Footballguys view: The Chargers had to sign Hawkins as a street free agent because they put Malcom Floyd on Injured Reserve. He'll be a reserve player and doesn't have much fantasy value.

  Chargers | Receivers work out    Tue Oct 1, 10:06 AM

The San Diego Chargers worked out free-agent WRs David Nelson (Browns), Austin Collie (Colts), Lavelle Hawkins (49ers), Derek Hagan (Buccaneers) and Matt Willis (Lions).

Footballguys view: There's no word on if any of these guys will be signed by the Chargers. They may just be updating their emergency list at the WR position. Willis does have experience with Mike McCoy dating back to their time together with the Denver Broncos.

  49ers | Several moves made    Sat Aug 31, 04:49 PM

The San Francisco 49ers cut WR Austin Collie, WR Kassim Osgood, LB Chad Hall, WR Lavelle Hawkins and LS Brian Jennings. WR Mario Manningham (knee) and WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') were placed on the reserve Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Collie may still be recovering from the torn patellar tendon he suffered last year. The 49ers knew he may not be ready until October when they signed him as a free agent earlier this year.

  49ers | Lavelle Hawkins doesn't help himself    Mon Aug 26, 12:42 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Lavelle Hawkins had a 105-yard kickoff return for touchdown, and he made a nice catch in the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 25. That's the good part. The bad part is that he head-butted an opponent, picked up a penalty, and was immediately pulled from the game by head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Hawkins can't do that type of stuff if he wants to make the team. The 49ers are desperate at the WR position so they may keep Hawkins despite his boneheaded penalty.

  49ers | Could keep six WRs    Fri Aug 23, 03:46 PM

The San Francisco 49ers could consider keeping six wide receivers on their final roster. WRs Chad Hall, Austin Collie, Lavelle Hawkins and Kassim Osgood would be options if the team keeps six receivers.

Footballguys view: Osgood would be the biggest help on special teams, while Collie would be a boost for the short and intermediate passing game. The team is more likely to lean on two tight-end sets, so we still expect five wideouts on the final 53.

  49ers | Expected to sign Lavelle Hawkins    Fri Aug 2, 06:02 PM

The San Francisco 49ers are expected to sign free-agent WR Lavelle Hawkins (Patriots).

  49ers | Lavelle Hawkins to work out    Fri Aug 2, 09:43 AM

The San Francisco 49ers are working out free-agent WR Lavelle Hawkins (Patriots) Friday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are filling up their rolodex with wide receivers that they might be able to add if they aren't happy with what they have going into the season. If Hawkins couldn't make a dent in the wide-open Patriots WR corps, he'll likely just remain a name on a watch list for the 49ers.

  Patriots | Three players cut    Wed Jul 31, 06:01 PM

The New England Patriots have released WR Lavelle Hawkins, OG Nick McDonald and WR Perez Ashford.

Footballguys view: The Patriots gave Hawkins some guaranteed money when they signed him earlier this offseason. His performance a week into camp was not what they wanted so they let him go.

  Patriots | Lavelle Hawkins may not make team    Fri Jul 5, 05:21 PM

New England Patriots WR Lavelle Hawkins may not provide enough special teams value to make the final roster as the No. 5 or No. 6 wide receiver.

Footballguys view: Hawkins got a small amount of guaranteed money, unlike other free agent WRs added by the Patriots this offseason (Donald Jones, Michael Jenkins). His ability on special teams will determine whether or not he makes the final roster.

  Patriots | Lavelle Hawkins could return punts    Thu Jul 4, 02:45 PM

New England Patriots WR Lavelle Hawkins is likely to get an opportunity to return punts in the preseason.

Footballguys view: Unlike Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins, Hawkins actually got a small amount of guaranteed money from the Patriots, and he was also signed only a week after the Titans let him go. Jenkins has taken the early lead in the battle to line up outside, but Hawkins could sneak onto the roster if he proves to be a good punt returner. That would allow the Patriots to expose Danny Amendola to injury as a returner less frequently.

  Giants | Were interested in Lavelle Hawkins    Sat May 11, 02:45 PM

The New York Giants were interested in meeting with New England Patriots WR Lavelle Hawkins, but he decided to sign with the Patriots.

Footballguys view: The Giants need to add better depth behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. Hawkins is a decent veteran but not a difference maker.

  Texans | Met with Lavelle Hawkins    Sat May 11, 02:29 PM

The Houston Texans met with New England Patriots WR Lavelle Hawkins last week, but he decided to sign with the Patriots.

Footballguys view: The Texans selected WR DeAndre Hopkins in the first-round of the 2013 NFL draft but they still have a need at the position. Hawkins is a decent pro and could have given the Texans veteran depth.

  Patriots | Lavelle Hawkins contract update    Fri May 10, 09:02 PM

  Patriots | Lavelle Hawkins signs    Thu May 9, 12:02 PM

The New England Patriots signed free-agent WR Lavelle Hawkins (Titans) to a two-year deal.

Footballguys view: The Patriots get another veteran here who can compete with Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins for a backup spot in the WR corps. Hawkins was a fourth-round pick of the Titans in 2008 but failed to play up to his potential in Tennessee.

  Titans | Lavelle Hawkins to be cut    Wed May 1, 04:17 PM

The Tennessee Titans have informed WR Lavelle Hawkins that he will be released.

Footballguys view: Hawkins was a fourth-round pick in 2008 but never developed on the potential he showed coming out of Cal. He'll try to catch on with another team in need of veteran WR depth before camp. We wouldn't be surprised if Nate Washington is the next veteran WR to be released in Tennessee.

  Titans | Two WRs may have to fight for spots    Wed Apr 3, 12:55 PM

Tennessee Titans WRs Lavelle Hawkins and Marc Mariani likely will have to compete for roster spots during training camp because of the addition of WR Kevin Walter.

Footballguys view: Right now the Titans WR corps looks a little cramped. However, the team is shopping Nate Washington and may just let him go if they can't find a good offer for his services.
