After 9 solid seasons
the Green Bay Packers have cut linebacker AJ Hawk.  The move frees up about $3.5 million dollars
in salary cap space for the team.  Hawk
was the 5th overall pick in the 2006 draft out of Ohio State
and is the team’s all-time leader in tackles. 
He made the Pro Bowl in 2010.  They
also cut inside linebacker Brad Jones last week, which cleared up another $3.75
million in cap space.  


The Bucks blew by Philadelphia 104-88 on Wednesday night at the BMO Harris

John Henson came off the bench to score 21 while Khris Middleton added 19.  Michael Carter-Williams got the start in his
