Patriots sign WR Lavelle Hawkins

The Patriots have signed free agent wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins to a 2-year deal.

The transaction was first reported by the Tennessean.

Hawkins was released by the Titans last week after five seasons with the team, which drafted him in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has 71 career catches for 771 yards and one touchdown. He had only 5 catches for 62 yards in 2012.

According to the Tennessean, he was slated to make $1.9 million in 2013 before being released.
