The Green Bay Packers this week released nine-year veteran A.J. Hawk. It wasn’t much of a surprise as Hawk’s playing time and performance had decreased over the past season and his departure was somewhat expected.
Over his career, however, Hawk was able to establish himself as a solid linebacker. In fact, based on numbers alone, Hawk will go down as one of the Packers most dependable defensive players in the team’s history.
Did you know…
* Hawk last season became only the 27th player in Packers history to play in 140 or more games with the team.
* Hawk is one of only six players the Packers drafted in the first round who eventually played 140 or more games with the team in his career.
