Hawk likes being paired with Jones at ILB


Lake Tahoe, CALIFORNIA   The combination of A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones at the inside linebacker spots was enough for the Packers to send Desmond Bishop packing and to give Jones a raise.

Hawk thinks it's money well spent.

The Packers linebacker is in Lake Tahoe this weekend at a celebrity golf event.

Jones replaced Bishop and D.J. Smith when they went down with injuries and turned in a solid season.

He started ten games, which was enough to convince management he should be the full-time starter for this upcoming season.

"Brad's awesome. Everything about Brad as a player he's proven over the years, especially last year just how great a player he is. He's a lot of fun on the field and off the field and works really hard. I think we have great chemistry together. He has great command of the defense and it's fun playing next to a guy like that," Hawk said.

The Packers report to training camp next week Thursday.
