Just as quick as he was cut, A.J. Hawk is back, with the Pack. Two sources tell me that the linebacker is scheduled to fly back to Green Bay on Thursday, and sign a new 5-year deal. Terms not disclosed. The Packers didn't have deal fully completed before they had to release Hawk. But Hawk will come to Lambeau Field to sign the new contract before the collective bargaining agreement is set to expire on Thursday at midnight.
A five year deal would mirror the length of Desmond Bishop's deal, keeping both linebackers in Green Bay through 2014. Bishop was given $7.45 million in bonus money and is set to make $1.188 million in salary in 2011. No word yet what the numbers are on Hawk's contract, but look for something similar.
