AJ Hawk, Lee and Martin cut

March 2, 2011

Thanks Nick for the alert on this. Read here. None of these moves is all that surprising. The Packers had to cut Hawk now before the ridiculous $10 mil guaranteed took effect. I would be surprised though if they don’t work something out with him. Hawk had a good season and by all accounts, stepped up as the quiet leader of a very good defense. Bishop and others said several times that Hawk was the play caller and the guy the defenders looked to before each play. While I still don’t think Hawk is THAT talented and TT certainly shouldn’t shell out too much for him, when coupling his intangible contributions with his quality level of play, I would like to see him back.
