    Pretty sure he'll be going back to GB. He was going to be due a $10.5 escalator and the Pack wanted it off the books. They can re-sign him to a more friendly deal if they wish

    I agree, and I reckon the Pack does too. He might check FA, but if GB offers he'll likely go back. Who wouldn't?

    He did play at Ohio State, maybe he'll go to Cleveland to play in a 4-3 :D

    No, he'll hold a press conference and get everyone on their toes... Cleveland fans and the State of Ohio all excited... and then go sign with Miami. :htown2atx:

    Ordinary or not, he'd make a good addition to our linebacking crew. Put him and Demico on the inside with Cush and Baldwin on the exterior, we'd have one of the best LB units in the league.

    Of course, we don't look at FA that could help our team.

    I agree, with AJ Hawk inside, we could put Cushing outside.

    & we'd have the two best LBs from the 2006 draft..... sorta.

    But another class of 2006 player in Houston... hmmmm.....

    This is why Hawk was released. I would think that the Pack will rewrite his contract for a more reasonable sum, and Hawk will resign.

    you may be right but he did get his ring and gb kinda treated him bad during the seasun I think he even asked for a trade at one point so he may not go back to gb and he is a ilb in the 34 but he would be a plus in houston

    he may not the packs best player but he would help the texans? I think so Ryan & Barwin coming off injury he makes our LB core better.

    Hawk will be a Packer again.

    What they have left off is the stats related to what the Pack is most disappointed in with Hawk.............his blitzing inability and his accompanying poor sack numbers (1/2 in 2010).

    He plays ILB he really isnt going to have high sack totals but he is good in coverage 3ints last yr his coverage skills could be a positive
