Lions Cut RB Bush, Packers Cut LB Hawk

Lions Cut RB Bush, Packers Cut LB Hawk

Leon Halip/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The top two teams in the NFC North have released two of their most prominent players.

The Detroit Lions will part ways with running back Reggie Bush and the Green Bay Packers have released inside linebacker A.J. Hawk.

Hawk was the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft by the Packers. He spent the last nine seasons with the team and is the franchise’s all-time leading tackler with 1,118.

"A.J. is a consummate Packer and we are grateful for all that he has given and how he represented the organization over the past nine seasons," Packers general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement.

The move frees up $3.5 million in cap space for Green Bay.

Bush, who signed a four-year deal with the Lions in 2013, could not stay healthy. He played in 25 games in two seasons with Detroit, missing five this past season as he dealt with a nagging ankle injury. The move frees up $1.7 million in cap space.

The Packers (12-4) won the NFC North last season when they defeated the Lions (11-5) 30-20 in Week 17.

Report: Reggie Bush Accused Of Spiking Women’s Drinks

(NEW ORLEANS, La.) -- Amid Darren Sharper's legal proceedings for rape accusations a former teammate has been accused of spiking drinks.

Sharper's former New Orleans teammate Reggie Bush has been implicated by a co-defendant for dropping ecstasy in women's drinks in a Las Vegas nightclub several years ago.

Brandon Liccardi, who is also being charged with multiple counts of rape, says he witnessed Bush, now a member of the Detroit Lions, drug multiple women, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate.

According to the indictment Liccardi stated:

“OK, um, I was in Vegas about three years ago and um, Reggie Bush put Molly in Champagne. He was handing out 'Molly' on the dance floor to girls. Handing it out. Like giving it to them,” Licciardi said.

“And how do you know that?” asked James O’Hern, an investigator for the DA’s Office.

“[Because] I saw it with my own eyes,” Licciardi responded.

Sharper and his co-defendants face charges across multiple states, including Arizona and California.

Bush denies the allegations.
