Mar. 18, 2013
 

PHOENIX -- The Packers cut linebacker A.J. Hawk’s 2013 pay by nearly $2 million when he agreed to renegotiate his contract last week.

In all, Hawk’s pay was reduced by $7.25 million over the remaining three years of the deal.

According to a source with access to NFL Players Association salary information, Hawk will make a total of $3.6 million this season. He was scheduled to make $5.45 million in salary ($4.9 million) and bonuses ($550,00). Instead, he agreed to reduce his base salary to $840,000 and will get a roster bonus of $2.21 million, which was guaranteed. He also can receive up to $300,000 in per-game roster bonuses, getting $18,750 for each game in which he’s active. It also contains a $250,000 workout bonus.

All told, it reduced Hawk’s salary-cap charge from $7.05 million to $5.2 million.

In the remaining two years of his deal, he will have base salaries of $2.45 million in both 2014 and 2015 plus roster bonuses of $500,000 and workout bonuses of $250,000 in addition to $300,000 in per-game roster bonuses in each season. Meaning he would make $3.5 million in each of those seasons. He had been scheduled to make $5.95 million in 2014 and $6.45 million in 2015.
