    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.

    What is up with all these Mike's? And "McCartney"? Is it just me or do you think McCarthy was posing as Hawks agent, making sure he would be in on time? Gotta admit, that man may be an O guru, but he needs some help in the disguise department.

    I'd rather them overpay him now than to have him holdout within the next two years...

    Hodge has signed as well according to KFFL. All rookies are now accounted for. Sweet.

    I logged in this evening specifically hoping to read the words "Hawk signed," so thanks to 4packgirl for the good news, and to the others for providing some details. With picks this high, it is no guarantee that they will sign in time for the season. (Remember what Bryant McKinnie did to the Vikings a few years ago. He held out till November, and I think he was a #6 overall pick.)

    I hope it is true that Hodge has signed as well. We have players who want to play! That's always a good start.

    officially holding out just means he missed a practice so he officially became a holdout. I believe AJ Hawk is considered "officially a holdout" because he missed tonights practice

    It isn't really accurate to call them holdouts. A holdout is when a player has a contract already but refuses to play until a new contract is agreed to. Saying rookies are holding out is kind of like saying a guy that is entering free agency is holding out. I mean it is obviously different in that the team that drafts the player has exclusive rights, but there is nothing technically wrong with waiting to get the right contract, although I do think most players realize that missing significant amounts of training camps is going to hurt them more, see Cedric Benson.

    Can someone clue me in as to why Hawk was paid so little this year(comparatively speaking) and $10mil NEXT year with a bonus. Usually it's the other way around. Must be a good reason. At first glance it would appear to be a blockbuster for a LB but as another poster stated.."..it will look cheap in a couple of years." Hawk has one GOOD agent, IMO. But don't get me wrong...I love having Hawk as a Packer.

    The only thing that bothers me.........will this tick of Barnett now? Will he cry like Harris cause "someone on the team is making MORE then me! WHAHHHH!!!" I saw Barnett on TV a few nights ago, and it LOOKED like he won't take that road. But i worry about it none the less.

    At least right now Hawk looks like a man of character. But I've seen this time and again, a player signs a great contract and two later a lesser player makes more money and then they hold out and want more. That's the real problem with the long term contracts, they don't mean anything. If you doubt my words, look at McKenzie, Walker, Harris, and the list goes on. But I think this Hawk kid is going to be an amazing player. I hope he's everything and more that Mario Williams would have been. It's a great sign and I'm hoping that Hawk is going to become the next Nitchke.
