    I would certainly think so. After all, if they have placed him on IR, then he is entitled to his entire base salary, whereas an injury settlement is for something substantially less. So, what would Ward's motivation be to accept an injury settlement, and less money, once he has been put on IR (and entitled to his full salary)?!??

    EDIT: Well, I guess he could accept the injury settlement if he felt he could catch on somewhere else and still play this season.

    He probably got a migraine from listening to Billick bitch at him.

    Re: Ward, Cherry to IR

    My understanding is that Ward was going to be cut anyway and had drawn Billick's ire repeatedly. This does guarantee his salary for the season in 17 game check increments. I doubt he will be back next season. It's really not a big deal. It also means Jamaine Winborne just made the team in all likelihood barring a major need or injury at another position arising in the next few days.

    I think Jermaine Winborne won his spot in the last 2 games making a couple of heads-up plays. If Aaron is right about BJ Ward and his attitude and drawing Billick's ire, then we don't need him here.

    Why bother to IR someone who you don't want on the team in the future? Seems like a waste of Steve B.'s money to me.

    This smells of a "Pashos' hand IR" scenario...
    Exactly, they are grooming him to possibly start next year.

    They just don't think he is ready, and don't wnat to waste a spot on him. Look for him to really fight for the spot next to Ed Reed next year.

    Re: Ward, Cherry to IR

    according to Aaron's notes, I guess it's not that, but still, you wonder why they'd IR him rather than just straight out cutting him...

    Good news about Jamaine Winborne though, that kid is AWESOME.

    You can't straight out cut an injured player. You either have to get him to agree to a settlement (and it takes two to tango) or you have to IR him.

    I very much doubt that. Read Aaron's post and think about it, if he was going to get cut this year, with the open competition at S and the unproven players we have competing there, how is he going to make it next year when Landry will (likely) have a year's experience starting, Sapp will be more experienced, and we may draft or bring in another player.
