The New England Patriots have agreed to a deal with free agent receiver Lavelle Hawkins, per a source.

Hawkins had spent his entire NFL career with the Tennessee Titans until he was waived last week. He was a fourth-round pick of the Titans in 2008.

Hawkins has 71 career receptions, with 47 of those coming in 2011 as his role increased when Kenny Britt was lost early that season to a torn ACL.
