Bucs Making Move At WR (Again)?April 4th, 2014
It seems Bucs general manager Jason Licht is not taking a lazy spring Friday afternoon lounging in his backyard with a cocktail, enjoying a warm and sunny day. The guy is busy.
First he traded starting wide receiver Mike Williams to frosty Buffalo. Now it seems he is ready to ink his replacement. And that would be a former member of the Titans. And, no, it’s not running back Chris Johnson.
Per NFL insider Adam Caplan, it appears to be Lavelle Hawkins.
@caplannfl: Buccaneers are expected to sign WR Lavelle Hawkins, source said.
Caplan usually has good sources and well-placed sources at that. It appears, just by looking at the stats, Hawkins is no Calvin Johnson. Hawkins, who last year played in four games for the Chargers but never touched the ball, had played five seasons previously with the Titans and has but one touchdown to his resume.
In 2011, Hawkins played in all 16 games and the only season in which he played in every game.
Joe’s going to guess the two words to describe Hawkins would be “camp meat.”
