    Thompson thanks Brad Jones for his contributions and dedication to the Packers over the past six years.

    The move results in a cap saving of $3.75 million for the Packers.

    So far the Packers have been making all the moves that I wanted them to make in the off season. Now... re-sign Cobb and I can't complain one bit.

    Better late than never. I am loving the Packers' moves since the epic choke. MM and TT's decisions since that game have been spot on. Let's hope they keep it up and show Hawk the exit as well.

    All kidding aside, Jones is a classic example of paying someone for what you hope is their potential. At the time of his new contract with GB some of us scratched our heads at that contract, but TT was no doubt hoping for his skill set to rise. He still has tread on his tires, someone will sign him for vet minimum.

    Happy day.

    Now get rid of the other overpaid stiff at ILB and free up some more money for worthy players.

    Jones was a better player at the time of signing the deal too. Somehow he got worse without being old for player.

    This most DEFINITELY means that we'll be in the market for an ILB either via FA or the draft. If its the draft, I think it means we'll draft one early.

    In fact, I bet we get two new ILB's. One in FA and one in the draft. We need depth there now.

    I think after Hawk is released, it will be 3-4 new ILB's we will be bringing into camp.

    Now if only he can get a procedure to remove the 2 bags of concrete he is dragging around behind him on the field he might just be worth bringing back.

    Heh, I was thinking the same thing. If they are looking for an excuse not to cut him, there it is.

    I would not be opposed to keeping Hawk around 1 more year. He knows the defense and the middle of the defense better than anybody, and if we're looking to bring in a new body or two, his knowledge would be nice to have and share. So long as he doesn't actually get on the field too much...

    The Packers save $3.5 million in cap space by releasing Hawk, this is a no-brainer.

    Hawk absolutely must be cut. If he wants to come back the next day on a veteran's minimum then fine.

    In this case the Packers could renegotiate Hawk's contract but he would still count at least $2.47 million vs. the cap. No, thanks.

    I was all in favor of cutting Hawk and bringing him back at Vet. Min until I read Captain's post. If that is the case, he isn't worth the additional $2.47 million. Thank you for your service as a Packer A.J.
