Giants | Looking At WRs

Tue, 12 Nov 2002 07:45:59 -0800

The Star-Ledger reports the New York Giants will begin looking at WRs later Tuesday. Former Lions WR Herman Moore is due to fly in and, according to his agent Brad Blank, "they're going to kick each other's tires. But I think it could be a good fit for both of them." Blank got the impression that if Moore looks like he is in shape, the job is his. Another named mentioned was WR Sean Dawkins and Bob Glauber adds for Newsday WR Yancey Thigpen may be on the list too. WR Thabiti Davis said Monday the Giants rescinded an offer to him, saying they wanted to sign a veteran.

Jaguars | Dawkins Struggling Too

Sun, 05 Aug 2001 22:15:14 -0700

Bart Hubbuch reports for the Times-Union Jacksonville Jaguars WR Sean Dawkins continued his training camp struggles on Sunday.

He was reduced to running routes against undrafted free agents for fourth-team QB Ted White during Sunday's practice. Coach Tom Coughlin wouldn't say if Dawkins' woes during camp have put him on the roster bubble. They can cut him with no salary cap issues since he did not receive a signing bonus. "He's struggled a little bit," Coughlin said of Dawkins. "I think he's going to come along, though."

The Jaguars have usually kept five receivers on the active roster and one rookie wideout on the practice squad. His salary could put his roster spot in jeopardy if his performance does not become more consistent.

Jaguars | Wide Receiver Concerns

Sun, 20 May 2001 07:56:20 -0700

While WR Jimmy Smith's exit from the hospital was definitely something the Jacksonville Jaguars were smiling about over the weekend, the concern they have about his ability to play this year remains high according to SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli. The Jaguars will continue to monitor the available free agent WRs, including Charles Johnson and Sean Dawkins, but will also have to look in-house at some of their own players. Undrafted rookie free agent Randal Williams has reportedly caught their eye with his six-foot-three, 219-pound frame and 4.3-second speed.

Bengals | Dawkins Note

Fri, 20 Apr 2001 10:13:26 -0700

Sean Keeler reports for the Cincinnati Post agent Angelo Wright, who represents free agent WR Sean Dawkins (Seattle), said that he's been in touch with the Bengals about a short-term deal.

Bengals | Looking For A No. 3?

Tue, 10 Apr 2001 21:11:03 -0700

Geoff Hobson reports for Bengals.com the Cincinnati Bengals would like to find a big, speedy outside receiver to play opposite Darnay Scott on the outside and Peter Warrick in the slot. They still have Ron Dugans, Danny Farmer, as well as third-year man Craig Yeast, but it's unclear if any of them can step up to be the No. 3 WR. They went after James McKnight via free agency and failed. Angelo Wright, WR Sean Dawkins’ agent, said the Bengals made a preliminary inquiry this week about the former Seahawks WR. He's not a speed demon, but he could be the veteran possession receiver the Bengals didn’t have last year. The Bengals could also use the NFL Draft to find their No. 3 WR, possibly in the second round.

The Tacoma News Tribune's Mike Sando reports Seattle Seahawks coach/GM Mike Holmgren could shake things up with a surprise or two when it comes to who he let's go via free agency. The team is expected to release DT Cortez Kennedy and WR Sean Dawkins may be a cap victim as well. Dawkins is scheduled to receive a $1 million roster bonus next month. The coach said he hasn't given up on FB Reggie Brown who lost his starting job to Mack Strong. Holmgren said he'd give him one more chance. Holmgren met Saturday at the Combine with potential draft pick WRs Koren Robinson of North Carolina State, David Terrell of Michigan and Chad Johnson of Oregon State.

Thu, 22 Feb 2001 12:43:10 -0800

Mike Sando reports for the Tacoma News Tribune that the Seattle Seahawks have offered G Pete Kendall and S Jay Bellamy contract offers but both appear to be ready to test the free agency market. The team has talked with DT Riddick Parker, but have not offered him an offer. The team hasn't talked with S Kerry Joseph, WR Sean Dawkins, LB James Logan or LB George Koonce. Dawkins is the only one of them under contract and, as previously reported, may be a cap casualty as the team would save around $2.5 million by cutting him. CB Willie Williams is eligible for free agency because he met incentives in his contract that allows him to void the final four years of his deal.

The Post-Intelligencer reports the Seattle Seahawks are expected not to release any players today in salary cap related moves and they will not "tag" any of their free agents. Coach and GM Mike Holmgren evaluate the available college players at the combine; study the players who will become free agents; and see which players are released in the next week before he announces any moves of his own. As reported earlier, DT Cortez Kennedy is expected to be released before he is due a roster bonus March 10. WR Sean Dawkins could be on the cap "bubble" as well.

Seahawks | Roster Look

Sun, 04 Feb 2001 19:01:46 -0800

Clare Farnsworth reports for the Sporting News the Seattle Seahawks are expected to make a new contract offer to OL Pete Kendall before March 2 in an effort to prevent him from becoming a free agent. After a good 2000 season he could demand a long-term deal that will average between $2 million and $3 million. He played the 2000 season for $750,000. QB Jon Kitna and his agent have yet to hear from the team on a new contract, which could signal the end to his career in Seattle. Two other players who could be in trouble in Seattle are WR Sean Dawkins and CB Willie Williams who are due either large base salaries or cap-prohibitive bonuses.

Dolphins | Getting Close

Thu, 18 Feb 1999 23:10:00 -0800

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are on the verge of signing Free Agent WR Willie Green. The deal is expected to be a fairly small contract money wise and it's not known how his signing will affect the Dolphins plans towards signing either Sean Dawkins or Leslie Shepherd. One factor weighing heavily on any Dolphins signing of a WR is the relatively cheap contract of their No. 1 WR O.J. McDuffie ($1.3 million per year). The team does not want to upset McDuffie.
