The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel suggests ILB A.J. Hawk may have to take a pay cut to return in 2013.
Hawk and talks of pay cuts go hand-in-hand every offseason. The 29-year-old is scheduled to earn $5.2 million in 2013 after racking up a career-high 120 tackles this season. Hawk graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 20 inside 'backer in 2012, which is much better than his cellar-dwelling days of 2010 and 2011.
