I never thought it was panic. Collie is just what this team needs, a very smart, hard-working guy who's an outstanding route runner and isn't at all undersized, Collie could replace a lot of what Manningham brought to the table. He's still fairly young, very intelligent, I see this as a solid addition.
Hawkins I see as a guy who they're going to take an extended look at through training camp but I don't have any high expectations of him sticking around.
