    Re: Daniels, Burgess not coming back



    So why the dance step? and not just straight to IR move?
    Have to be done that way? or is there some roster implication I'm missing?
    Maybe allows activation later? or cap relief? I'm not clear on the why of this move involving waiver.

    Yes, it has to be done that way. They did the same thing with Sypneiwski and Kuhn. A non-vested veteran (ie less than 4 years experience) must be placed on waivers prior to going on IR. But, since an injured player can't be released, they are "waived-injured". Once they clear waivers, they then go on IR and can stay there or the team can work out an injury settlement and release them.

    So, it's still possible that the team could release them (with an injury settlement) at some point.
