Patriots sign WR Lavelle Hawkins

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, former Titans wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins has signed with the New England Patriots.

“He liked the situation in New England,” agent Brian Overstreet said, per Wyatt. “They are going to throw the ball a lot, and they have one of the best quarterbacks of our time in Tom Brady. It’s a great situation for Lavelle. They use a lot of guys, and he’s going to get a shot.”

Hawkins’ best season was in 2011 when he recorded 470 yards receiving and 1 touchdown.
