(Newser) – Mighty linebacker AJ Hawk, we salute you and your sack of St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford in last night's Packers-Rams game. Oh, apparently you saluted yourself, and with just one finger, reports the Huffington Post. Hawk later apologized for the gesture, calling it a "bad joke" and promising not to do so again. No word yet from the NFL whether Hawk will be fined.
