While the concept of a player-organized workout during the lockout seems like a great idea in theory – hey everybody, let’s work on our game to keep in shape, maintain our chemistry and camaraderie, and show everybody that we really want to play football!!! – Packers LB A.J. Hawk has a different theory about the effectiveness of such workouts.

Basically, he says, they’re not very useful at all.

"I've heard that different guys' workouts from different teams have just been a disaster,” Hawk told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “They're working out at bad high school fields and equipment and all that kind of stuff."

And that’s even if the high school will actually LET them on the field, right Greg Olsen?

Though the Packers haven’t scheduled any offseason workouts, Hawk isn’t worried about his teammates getting fat and lazy.

"We're all ready to come back. We never got out of shape," said Hawk. "The player gatherings are a good thing to get together and be with your teammates - that's the most I would take from it."
