Hawk to retire as member of Packers after 11 seasons
GREEN BAY, WIS. | Linebacker A.J. Hawk announced Tuesday that will retire as a member of the Green Bay Packers after 11 NFL seasons.
The 2006 draft pick out of Ohio State ranks first in franchise history with 1,118 career tackles. Hawk played in 142 of a possible 144 regular-season games with Green Bay, appearing in all 16 contests in eight of his nine seasons with the Packers. He played one season with Cincinnati and appeared in one game for Atlanta last year.
The Packers said his 158 games played from 2006-15 were the most among NFL linebackers over that span, and he led Green Bay in tackles five times during his career (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012-13), tied with Nick Barnett for most in team history.
