GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers re-signed defensive back Michael Hawthorne and waived linebacker Ralph Turner on Friday.

Hawthorne signed with the Packers on Sept. 15 and played the final 14 regular-season games and two playoff games. He had 23 tackles, one sack and two interceptions.

Turner had signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Jan. 13 and was allocated to NFL Europe the next day.

well he was our back up/ Nickel back but he is in the same roll in GB. No biggy. He got playing time due to injures GB suffered and will remain there back up this season.

Come on guys... Hawthorne was horrible in coverage, thats why he\'d get 7 tackles a game when he\'d start... He shoulda been playing safety.

We gave Hawthorne plenty of time to develop here. Green Bay can sign him to as many extentions as they want; he will never be more than a mediocre nickle back.

I do not miss Hawthorne. Just a waste of a jersey as far as I\'m concerned. Remember the Randy Moss comment he made on his way outta NOLA? Classy guy.

Hawthorne was responsible for 50% of the receiving TDs amassed by our opponents in his last season as a Saint. Good riddance.

hawthorne was actually tried out at safety and he couldnt even handle that, subsequently, he was released....

Hawthorne was the kind of guy that you could get excited about because of his size. He was a guy i really wanted to see develop into a quality corner but i can admit that he never did and more than likely he never will.....I dont miss him at all and I hope to see him wear the uniform of a team the Saints will be playing because i am sure that he will be picked on and exploited all day long....the guy is aweful.
