The Raiders waived wide receiver Samie Parker and added defensive back Michael Hawkins to the roster, according to the transactions page at Raiders.com.
An Oklahoma product, Hawkins has been with Green Bay (fifth-round draft pick), Cleveland, Minnesota, Dallas and Tampa Bay. He was cut by Dallas on Aug. 17, signed with the Bucs two days later, and then released.
Hawkins played 11 games with Green Bay in 2005 and seven with Cleveland in 2006. He has one career start.
I’ll have a post-practice blog later. The Raiders practice today at 3:30 p.m. and Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m., their final practice in Napa.
Will have practice updates on my Twitter page.
