1) Introduction: Despite being the highly touted 5th overall draft pick in the 2006, many have considered Hawk a bust in the sense that he never lived up to his lofty draft status. While a solid player, Hawk never did show much penchant for making the big play and many fans were hopeful that Hawk would be released in the 2011 season.

1) Introduction: From Super Bowl starter to 3rd stringer, Frank Zombo probably had the worst luck of any member on the Packers team who wasn’t placed on IR. Zombo didn’t even get to the regular season healthy due to a broken scapula during the preseason and the usual bumps and bruises during the regular season cost Zombo playing time after the scapula was mended...
1) Introduction: My, what lofty expectations Vic So’oto had for the 2011 season. Coming to the Packers offseason as an undrafted rookie free agent from BYU, So’oto was a converted 4-3 DE who exploded onto the scene during the last preseason game against the Kansas City with 1.5 sacks and an interception against starters who were constantly double teaming him...

Thompson was also recognized by Sporting News as the 2011 Executive of the Year, even though he couldn&...
