Why not?

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

Re: SKINS sign Free Agent WR Jason Willis

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?

Re: SKINS sign Free Agent WR Jason Willis

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

Re: SKINS sign Free Agent WR Jason Willis

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.
