As you’re presumably aware, AJ Hawk played linebacker for Ohio State and the Packers, Bengals, and Falcons. As he looks towards his post-playing career, he is looking to become a broadcaster, with his main ambition being to become a color commentator for either college football or NFL telecasts.
For the past two years, he has hosted the Hawk Cast — which is available on YouTube, iTunes, and Stitcher — and has had a lot of great guests, including Adam Schefter, Joe Buck, Bill Goldberg, Aaron Rodgers, John Daly, and more.
On this podcast, we discussed:
- Was he ever concerned that the narrow victory over the Cowboys would join the reel of Packers playoff heartbreak?
- How happy is he for former teammate Mason Crosby, who faced competition for his job in the lead-up to the 2013 season?
- Was there ever a point this season where he a) thought Mike McCarthy’s job might be in danger, and/or b) Aaron Rodgers might not get his groove back?
- His podcast, dabbling in studio shows, and hopes to become a color commentator.
Hope you enjoy!
