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.
