The only thing the 'Hawks would want in this unlikely scenario would be draft picks for next year. Waht we would get would probably be 7's anyway. Useful, of course, but not top value.
Yes they go through the waver wire system.
Depends on the player. If you have 4 years of accrued seasons in the NFL or more, you become an UFA and can sign with any team. Your previous contract is void.
If you have 1-3 years of accrued seasons you must go through the waiver wire. If claimed, they pick up your previous contract. If you clear waivers, your previous contract is void and you become an UFA and can sign with any team to a new contract.
NFL Season: six or more regular-season games in one season in which a player is on the 53-man roster, IR list or PUP list
