1st Rounder, Hawk Signs

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Fri Jul 28, 2006 5:57 pm

The Green Bay Packers have agreed in principle to a six-year, $37.5 million contract with A.J. Hawk, the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

The former Ohio State linebacker hopes to get the language of the contract done by Saturday morning so that he can practice. Terms of his guarantees haven't been finalized. Those will be done Friday night and Saturday morning.

Talks between the Packers and Hawk's agent, Mike McCartney, heated up Thursday afternoon when the Jets completed a similar deal with D'Brickashaw Ferguson, the fourth pick in the draft. The Packers reported to camp Friday.

All of the Packers' draft choices now have contract agreements.

Not really, Urlacher is MLB, he is OLB. Urlacher is 6'4" and a physical specimen. Hawk is fairly strong but is 6'1". He could be a great OLB in the years to come.

A.J. has been struggling so far this pre-season. Talk is that Hodge has looked real good, but A.J. is having a tough time of it. Hopefully when the live hitting happens more frequently, he'll feel more comfortable.
"Sometime during the Pats game last week, I decided that Tomlinson was the best overall running back of my lifetime. There's nothing he can't do: deadly receiver, tough inside runner, explosive to the outside, you name it." - ESPN's Bill Simmons
