Per, um, myself:
#Packers linebacker AJ Hawk has agreed to a restructured contract, per league source.

I don’t have any specific numbers, but I am told the restructure was not “significant” and that it is a slight adjustment to the final three years of the contract he was already on.
While some Packers fans may not think so, I think this is a great move. There had been speculation that the team might simply cut the veteran linebacker, despite the cap hit they would take in the process. But with Desmon Bishop and D.J. Smith both coming back from significant injuries, Hawk is too valuable to let go.
