Teams can't put players on IR without clearing waivers until the last cut to 53, so Kubgila will be put on IR then andstill counts on the 75 man roster for the moment.

Since players on IR count against the cap, I'm surprised we aren't making injury settlements with some of them. Even at minimum salaries this has got to be in the $2-3 million range. Since most of these injuries could reasonably be negotiated to 1/4 of the season, Gman seems to believe that there is something to continue to develop.

1. We are at 75 when we added kugbilla to IR. he does not count as a spot on the roster.

2. Most rookies have a clause in their contract if they go to IR only half their cap counts.

3. To my understanding a team cannot benefit financially from releasing an injured player like that. I believe even if we gave them an injury settlement it would have to be equal to their cap hit and would count against the cap.

We will have injury settlements with half of these guys by the time the season starts.

http://russellstreet...system-work-2/. Players with less than four years experience must go thru waivers in the offseason if put on IR. Gman is well aware of this since the Giants lost a TE to NE a couple of years ago by exposing him to IR waivers so they wouldn't have to include him on their preseason roster. Kugbila will not formally go on IR until Sat.

Don't be surprised if a few of those names wind up being cleared off by injury settlements.

Right. Campbell and Kearse are FA next year so there's no reason to keep them on IR. Don't know what Webb is still doing on IR.

Without even looking at the link I'd be certain that doesn't include drafted players

Well, looks like we're stashing both of them, so it actually appears to be a smart, if not strategic, move.
