AJ Hawk was released by the Packers today to avoid paying him a 10.5 millons roster bonus. Though I hear they intend to resign him i think the the broncos should make a play for him. He is young (only 5 years in the NFL) and he is a LB which is a big area of need for us.
His production has been vey good, maybe not 6th overall pick prduction but still solid. He still managed to get over 100 tackles this year playing out of posotion in a 3-4 when he is a natural OLB in a 4-3. His sack numbers arent stellar but the amount of turnovers he produces are pretty amazing and tunovers is a huge problem with the broncos consistantly from year to year, He is a playmaker which we need alot more of on defense and signing him would allow us to focus on Dline or PP in the draft.
There is no real downside for the broncos making a push to sign him and i think he would be worth it as an instant upgrade in our LB core is needed for next year.
Also as a side note we could then stop having to decide between Von Miller and other first round picks and id personally rather have AJ Hawk and draft PP or Dareus than draft an unproven guy like miller
