    Gauge was better than Hawki..... yeah thats a bold face lie, never mind.

    I used to have some hopes for Hawkins but the guy is a turd and no matter how much someone tries to polish it, hes still gonna be a turd. Hopefully we will cut him, he offers nothing to this team other than taking a roster spot that would be better served by someone with some special teams skills.

    Hawkins certainly is not in Paul Williams territory (Why they kept him as long as they did is beyond me) but he is certainly not worth what we are paying him.

    I got a dog that belonged to Casey Anthony's little girl. Selling it straight up for 500$, don't ask questions.

    I have to disagree. The FO is responsible for that ridiculous deal they gave Hawkins. I think he's played great for us when he's actually gotten snaps. The problem is he never gets snaps. I'm not mad at him for getting paid and not even playing. That's on the FO. That said, we do need to cut him.

    People complain about the Hawkins signing but it really isn't that bad of a contract considering where we were WR-wise with Kenny Britt and no Kendall Wright

    Even if you take out last year, when he was injured. His first two seasons, he had 5 catches for 24 yards yards.


    24 yards in 2 years. Has there EVER been a WR even close to that who has gone on to be productive?

    Even Hawkins did much better than that. This year he was invisible and so bad that he was deactivated for many games... yet ended the year with 5 catches and 62 yards.

    As it stands, Mariani is averaging 8 yards per year as a WR. If that excites anyone.......:makefun:


    His value is on special teams and thats it

    We're basically paying Hawkins $200k per catch... worse than the amount CJ gets per carry.

    You should have asked him for some money when you saw him at the airport last year.

    Why are we even talking about wide receiver FA's? We need a defense and an o-line, Not WRs that couldn't hack it on teams are worse than us. Let Hawkins, Preston, and Mariani battle it out for that last spot. Focus on either through the draft or Free Agency an interior o-line, inside linebacker, a DT(if Marks leaves), and some more help at safety. No more Afalava and Babineaux.
