Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

Well I meant MK situation in terms of can his knee ever be healthy

And IR will give us first rights to him in 2013. Had to waive him first though or he would have counted against the 90 man preseason roster.

I have never understood why there is such a cap for a preseason roster. I know having too many in camp is a problem but why the cap?

Might be to keep teams from hoarding players, just for the reason to keep other teams from getting them in camp. I'm sure there are teams out there that will put 150-200 players, if not more, on their preseason roster just to do this.

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

So did Minnifield get claimed today or did he clear waivers?

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

Somebody should be able to make coaches take notice in training camp. Something tells me that CB Morgan Trent will be a pleasant surprise.

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

I'm happy that no one decided to chase Minnifield and he remains with us.

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

Minnifield is probably viewed as an injury prone player. That's not a good reputation for a rookie to have before he even plays in a NFL game. That's why none of the other teams viewed him as a reliable option.

Welcome to the board. But just an FYI, don't feel like you have to post so much early on just to get your first thread up. You want to be sure the thread you plan to start is great if that's what you're doing

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

Smootsmack, so I'm curious.... a guy like Chase here that didn't and won't play at all during training camp or the preseason that the Skins put on IR, does he get a settlement check or something and the Redskins keep his rights?

Re: Chase Minnifield Waived

I don't know Chase's situation specifically but player's usually get their salary. But someone like Chase, who wasn't drafted, has an injury history and didn't even get a signing bonus, may have received a split contract.

Meaning he would get one salary for making the roster, but another (lower salary) if they end up on IR
