He knew it too and that’s why he took the pay cut. He’d probably only get around the vets minimum someplace else.

I know it goes against your feelings about Hawk, but let’s give the guy some credit here. Especially sandwiched between articles about Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley!

Hawk accepted a pay cut without saying a word. He even accepted a clause that pays him less if he falls so far down the depth chart that he starts hitting the inactive list.

This contract is very fair, and there aren’t a lot of vets who would have taken it.

Yes, we HOPE this clears the way for Hawk to be a back up. HOPE.

It is all about creating space for the monstrous contracts of A-Rodge and Matthews. And don’t forget, EDS and Sam Shields are still waiting to be signed.

Rather I would argue AJ Hawk is an average player who was vastly overrated coming out of college, never lived up to the early first round pick he was, and has been overpaid his entire career. The Packers and Ted Thompson decided they wanted to pay Hawk as much as they did. It’s not AJ’s fault.

That’s a far cry from underachieving. On the contrary I think we’ve known exactly what we’re going to get from Hawk and have for awhile and that is a guy who stays healthy, plays, and tends to lead the team in tackles. He was a steady presence in our Super Bowl year, is serviceable or close to it…and is still overpaid.

Hawk has naked dude-on-dude Ted pics, I’m convinced of this.
