Hawk's stats were better than Urlacher's in 2010.

Hawk seems like a pros pro though, and I would imagine he will do what he can in training/conditioning to improve this year. He will be better with better players around him too... like, Brad Jones.... Rolling Eyes

I'm not disagreeing with you, The Packers got caught completely unprepared, just trying to make the point the guys on the roster now are pretty talented, that 4-5 mil a year is not out of line.

They obviously think he's the future starter :)

Jones was one of my favorite picks at the time, I really like his speed. It seems Ted Thompson sees something he really likes, that's a much better deal than most would have expected him to get. We'll just have to trust Ted Thompson knows what he's doing, he usually does.

Brad Jones is the Packers' only ILB who is competent in pass coverage. He has the speed and height to cover the hybrid TE that are taking over the NFL. I'd rather have Jones out there in coverage instead of Hawk or Bishop/Smith coming off major injuries. I could see Jones being our lone LB in dime packages also. It also helps our special teams.

Nice job by Thompson locking him up.

Who would you rather have covering Vernon Davis in January?
