Why not?

He's a camp body, nothing more. There's no risk involved.

Just a side note on some of these signings, how would it be to basically be career "training camp fodder"? You know you won't make the team, but just show up, get your paycheck and leave.

But I was under the impression that you don't make any money (aside from any signing bonus, which these guys don't usually get) until you make the team's roster?

no i think they get paid weekly from when they sign, since they're exposed to injuries and the like.

I agree with that matty, no harm to have the guy around.

You never know, might make a 5th WR or pratice squad, stranger things have happened.

Man, I'd really like to know what the pay is. Just interesting how many of these guys there are floating around. It just seems too like if you don't have the talent, you're never going to magically get it.

They absolutely get paid on a weekly basis.
