The San Francisco 49ers released WR Lavelle Hawkins today. Hawkins made a few big plays during the preseason, but he also had a few big time penalties during the preseason. And they were stupid penalties. He picked up a pair of unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on one play. He had a few of those just in the preseason.
If he can continue making big plays, then someone will try to work with him. He has been in the league long enough to know about those stupid penalties, but he still racked up a few of them.
He has already had chances with the Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers. Time for a new uniform. He must be collecting them now.
