Veteran Linebacker Hawk Retires With Packers – Veteran linebacker A.J. Hawk is retiring from the NFL as a member of the Green Bay Packers, the team he began his career with in 2006. He retires as the team’s all-time leader with 1,118 tackles, according to the Packers. Hawk was released by the Falcons in October after signing with the team earlier in the month. He appeared in just one game for Atlanta.
Seahawks Letting OT Gilliam Join 49ers – The Seattle Seahawks will not match the San Francisco 49ers’ offer on restricted free agent Garry Gilliam, per a league source. The fourth-year right tackle will join the 49ers on a one-year, $2.2 million deal with $1.4 million guaranteed. Because the Seahawks tendered Gilliam at the lowest level, they will not receive any draft pick compensation from the 49ers, who had signed Gilliam to the offer sheet on Monday. Seattle had five days to match the offer but made their decision just a day later.
