Former Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk is confident that Aaron Rodgers is capable of another MVP season in 2018. 

"Absolutely," Hawk said on Friday at the American Century Championship gold tournament. "Anytime he is healthy for the majority of the season, he should be a front runner to win the MVP."

After Rodgers fractured his collar bone the first time in 2013, he returned the following season to win the league MVP and lead the Green and Gold to the NFC Championship game. Hawk was a part of that team and believes it could happen again.

"I think he's prime to have another huge season," Hawk said. Anytime you have Aaron healthy playing in the lineup, you're going to have a great chance to win."

Both Aaron Rodgers and A.J. Hawk are competing in the American Century Championship celebrity gold tournament. It's become a tradition where Hawk tackles a fan with no pads out on the course, something that started in 2014 but he says that likely wont happen this year. 

"There's not a course I can go to in America where someone doesn't ask me to tackle them," he said.
