Should we be excited about this signing? Am always good with signing players to make the team better - and I think RB is someplace we need at least additional insurance, but when I read Hawkins' player profile - it had me scratching my head....does he offer a significant upgrade?

Small, fast with good hands and is willing to pass block.

Small and willing to pass block… but not big enough to pass block.

What's wrong with big, slow, steady, and mean?

Personally I don't see anything wrong with having a TE in the backfield in 3rd & long situations where we aren't going to run to any great effect. I'm not a fan of the 'back' coming out of the pocket without chip-blocking someone.

What we know is his type of player is a dime a dozen. Not what we need, we have him already , lets get a true fullback or blocking back on the roster, something we currently do not have. Not a rip on Hawkins but I just don't see how he helps us.

Mundt is used as a TE and a FB
