Packers' AJ Hawk took a pay cut today. I'm told it's not a huge one. Don't have specifics.

AJ Hawk's restructure was actually a redo of the final three years of his deal.

Well, that's good.

I don't think anybody (who pays attention) had any problem with the player, just with how much he was getting (and going to get) paid.

More cap space!

Now I really won't understand people who still have a problem with Hawk.

Typical TT, sitting on his hands and gets off his musical chair a second before the music stops.

Love this guy as a team player. Even if it's not huge, he's agreeing to do what he can money wise to help the team, and that is a class act.

Now you "OVERRATED FOR HIS PAY!!" people can stop being so mean to him. Laughing

Dude, where's his youtube highlight video? Does ESPN ever talk about him?

The sarcastic comments are just as bad/annoying as the people who say the same things seriously.

Not sure what this means? Last ditch effort to retain Greg?

Fine. I wonder what the paycut was? Was TT really going to cut him if he wouldn't take a pay cut? Who would have played in place of him? Um, go Pack.

I don't think you really need a reason to try to restructure Hawk's contract (as though extending 12, 52, 90 wasn't enough). It was a move you would probably want to make anyway.

This is very welcome news. Cannot really have a problem with the player on the field. Now the contract is more team friendly as well. Time to lock up some of the talent and keep them in Green and Gold, and I was not referring to Francois.

I liked Hawk,and now I like him even more. There's a reason the staff likes him so much, because he works hard and doesn't stop. Now that he has taken the discount, I will be peeved to see people complain about him other than if he is not playing well. Bishop/Hawk is enough for me
