Is Green Bay Packers' A.J. Hawk the Next Player on the Chopping Block?

Feb 20, 2013 Full story: Rant Sports 22

As the Green Bay Packers , along with the rest of the NFL , continue to trim the fat from their payroll, the obvious question is "Who's next?" More than a question of talent, it is a question of Green Bay freeing up the needed money that's going to make players like Aaron Rodgers , Clay Matthews and B.J. Raji very rich men.

Id like to see where Andrew Datko fits in? 6 6 320 or so,add some muscle and prove the shoulder is healthy and he can play RT,Bulaga at LT and move Barclay to Center if he could.HE was listed as a guard,but, played RT late as we know,not real good pass protector ( he young yet) but very good Run blocker and would be solid in the Middle i would think.
I wont be shocked if they go LB,Safety or WR with the 1st pick though.
We can use some more speed at LB ( although many of the guys on that team are young and should make that improvement in 13 as their 2nd year)making Hawk expendable after 13.Solid but lost a step or 2 in his 6 years here and a bigger cap number and as FA approaches,its only getting bigger.
They had a real nice article in the MJS about Bulaga moving to LT,Barclay, Sitton,Lang ect a day or 2 back and if Bulaga cuts it at LT Barclay,Datko at RT ( or draft one,or maybe Newhouse is better suited at RT) it may work out.
Id like to see Bradshaw,running North and South wearing Green and Gold,but, he has ankle/foot problems i believe so thats something to look into.
Imagine Bradshaw and Benson as a 1,2 punch..Not a whole lot of speed but some serious power! Throw in DuJaun Harris who can catch the ball out of the backfield and adds some speed to it ( although when he comes in the play calling becomes obvious),So id imagine its one or the other Bradshaw or Benson nd Bradshaw has been slowed with Foot/ankle over the past few years i believe,again,something to look into

Where are you reading this? I read Bradshaw wants to keep his house, and would be interested in signing with the Jets--tells me he'd take less money to do so. Also I read that Arizona is very interested in him. No way we get in a bidding war. The other thing is Bradshaw's looking for a 3-year deal. I don't see the Pack ponying up for that.
