NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have waived wide receivers Lavelle Hawkins and Michael Calvin as well as safety Suaesi Tuimaunei.

Hawkins, 26, is the most notable of the players waived.

The former fourth-round draft pick from California had caught 71 passes for 771 yards and one touchdown in five seasons with the Titans. Hawkins had 47 receptions for 470 yards in 2011 to set career highs in both categories, but he followed that up by catching just five passes for 62 yards in seven games last season.

Calvin and Tuimaunei had signed futures contracts with the Titans in January. Tuimaunei originally joined the Titans' practice squad in December.
