Chargers signed WR Lavelle Hawkins.

It's an indication the Bolts don't expect Malcom Floyd (neck) back any time soon. The longtime Titan couldn't make it past final cuts with the 49ers, but had a strong preseason. Hawkins should contribute mostly on special teams in San Diego.

49ers signed WR Lavelle Hawkins, formerly of the Patriots.

27-year-old Hawkins was cut loose by the receiver-needy Patriots early in camp, which tells you all you need to know about his abilities. The 49ers will likely view Hawkins as a camp body due to several injuries at wide receiver.

Free agent WR Lavelle Hawkins will work out for the 49ers.

Hawkins, 27, was released by the Patriots on Wednesday, and he's expected to be in San Francisco this weekend. The Niners have been working out veteran receivers all summer. The team is thin at the position with Michael Crabtree (Achilles'), Kyle Williams (knee), and Mario Manningham (knee) nursing injuries.

Patriots released WR Lavelle Hawkins.

So begins the Patriots' annual purge of their veteran receiver fliers. Hawkins' release is both a mild vote of confidence in the Pats' extremely young receiver corps, and poor sign for Hawkins' future. Getting cut loose before August is never a good thing, but particularly so when a team has as little proven depth in your position group as the Pats do in their receiver corps. Hawkins will look to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.
