Who hasn't done a damn thing in his entire NFL career up to now.
Lavelle Hawkins-since 2008-71 catches, 771 yards, 1 touchdown, 10.9 yards avg. So awesome that the Patriots who are desperate for WR's, cut him and haven't shown any interest in bringing him back. Its like Brandon Jones all over again.
He's been a garbage player, he'll never be anything but a garbage player, simple as that. He can light it up in the preseason, like so many others, but you put him on this roster and now you've added Kyle Williams Part 2, but dumber and with a bigger mouth.
People really need to stop letting preseason performances against guys who aren't even in the NFL anymore cloud their judgment.
I'd take Collie over Hawkins in a heartbeat, is this a serious comparison? Collie has almost 3 times as many receiving yards, actual playoff and Superbowl experience and knows how to use his quickness to get separation. I'd be all in for them bringing him back and dumping Osgood. The only issue with Collie has been his health, not his performance on the field, during the 2010 season, for awhile he was leading the entire NFL in receptions, yards and touchdowns. He would be a very useful addition if Roman actually starts to incorporate more screens, slants and other shorter patterns into his playcalling.
