In Topic: Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Did the panthers do something similar to this to get Tavarres King off waivers from Denver?

 

No. He wasn't waived/injured. He was healthy and we claimed him to be on our 53 roster. Offseason cuts ≠ season cuts.

If people are going to criticize Gettleman, then they should criticize every general manager in the NFL because every GM does this when a player with small value/importance suffers a season-ending injury but is a player they still would like to keep.

The player almost always makes it through waivers and onto that teams IR.  Unfortunately Patriots appeared to like Gaffney a lot in spite of his injury.

 

Holy crap there are smart people in this thread!!

As a huge Gettleman supporter even I have to admit this was a pretty bad mistake on his part. Espescially considering the same thing happened to the Giants when he was on their staff.

 

Teams waive injured players every day, during preseason there are at least 10 moves like these every day around the league. I guess for some of you is a smarter idea to keep him on the roster and cut a healthy player you want on final cuts. Very bright.

Greg Orton heads to the Patriots IR after clearing waivers.

 

OMG the Patriots just did the same move with one of their injured players. They must be dumbzzz. Fire Belichick.

I believe they could have kept him on the active roster untill the first game and that put him on I.R ...just read the rules on IR candidates.FO fugged up on this one
Big time..just Google it and read and weep

 

If you keep him on the active roster until after final cuts you have to waive one healthy player you want on your 53-man roster, then IR Gaffney and hope no one claims said player (unlikely) so you can put him back on the roster. That seems like a good idea to you?

 

What Panthers did is something every team does in this situation. Just the Past being the Pats and saying FU to the NFL-etiquette.
