Re: Ravens final cuts made
Tim Johnson could be signed back because he has been in the NFL for 4 years, so by cutting him now we would not get the full cap hit for the season. By signing him back after Week 1 we would only be on the hook for the pro rated portion of his salary (if we cut him again)....The Raiders might be doing this with Jeff George.
We did the same in 2002 with Sam Gash, and we also did in 2004 (the players name escapes me), but it was involved in the Gerome Sapp snafu. Not sure we have many guys that fall into this category but it is something to consider.
*The clause deals with 4 accrued seasons, not sure what exactly qualifies as a accrued season.
