Packers | D.J. Smith won't compete with A.J. Hawk

Tue, 26 Jun 2012 12:38:55 -0700

Green Bay Packers LB D.J. Smith will not compete with LB A.J. Hawk because Smith doesn't play the same position as Hawk on defense. Smith serves as the backup to Hawk in the team's 3-4 defense. "You can say it's kind of minor, but it's kind of a big difference," Smith said. "It's still a middle linebacker, but one position (Hawk's) has more responsibility than the other. When it comes to A.J.'s spot, he's the signal caller. He's the guy that runs the show. He's the quarterback of the whole thing. He gets guys lined up, ready to go and makes all the checks when things switch around." LB Desmond Bishop is the "mack" linebacker while Hawk is the "buck" linebacker in this system. LB Robert Francois is likely Hawk's backup in case of injury.

Moss said Hawk did not have a down year last season but did not make as many impact plays as the team would have liked.

Packers | Will be ready following lockout

Thu, 23 Jun 2011 08:03:21 -0700

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk does not think the time lost during the NFL lockout will impact the team as much as teams rebuilding or with coaching changes. "We haven't had any full team workouts. We've had small groups of guys here and there working out together," Hawk said. "The great thing about Green Bay is we're not banking on having any rookies coming in and play. We're not putting in any new schemes. For us the main thing is making sure everyone is coming into camp in shape and on time. We have a lot of guys who are accountable and take care of their bodies this whole summer."
