Detroit worked out free-agent wide receivers Anthony Armstrong, Charles Hawkins and
Lavelle Hawkins on Tuesday. All three players were let go late in the preseason.
Anthony Armstrong and LaVelle Hawkins both have some NFL regular-season experience. Armstrong, 30, most recently played with the Dallas Cowboys. His best season came in 2010, where he caught 44 passes for 871 yards and three touchdowns for the Washington Redskins.
Lavelle Hawkins, 27, was released by the San Francisco 49ers in August. He also had a stint with the Patriots earlier in the off season. His best year years were with Tennesse between 2008 and 2012 where he caught 71 passes for 771 yards and a touchdowns.
Charles Hawkins, a 23-year-old rookie from Southern University, had a three-month stint with the Arizona Cardinals leading up to the 2013 regular season.
Free-agent quarterback John Parker Wilson also took part in the workout on Tuesday.
Detroit’s starting wide receiver, Nate Burleson, suffered a broken arm in an auto accident early Tuesday morning, thinning the team’s depth at the position.
