A.J. Hawk tackles man at golf tournament

The Green Bay Packers report for training camp next week. Aaron Rodgers and AJ Hawk spent their final free weekend in Lake Tahoe, playing in the American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament.

Both guys have been regulars at Lake Tahoe for this event, but this was a first for Hawk: A fan asked to be tackled during Thursday's practice round.

Hawk obliged.

"He guy was a big guy, too, so I was kind of worried for a second. I wasn't sure if I should do it or not," Hawk said. "but his buddies were the ones egging me on, saying 'Kill him, do it, take him down.'

"I hit him pretty solid, right in the ribs with my shoulder. It felt good. I thought for a second that the guy might turn when I was coming, he might turn on me and try to hit me. So I said I kind of have to give it my all. I didn't want to go to the ground; I really thought I was going to rip my pants as well. But I didn't, so that was a victory."
