    Re: Any Interest in Ben Ijalana?



    But if we claim him off waivers, and then we go to put him on IR for the season, why won't we risk losing him the same way Indy is? Won't we have to do the same thing Indy did?

    My understanding is that a waived/injured player comes off the 90 man roster. A player who is simply IR'd remains on the 90 man roster until final cuts. I could be wrong on that.

    Thanks GOTA but why arent they just IR'ing him themselves then? i have to be missing something because its just not making sense to me.

    So a guy who has had two season ending injuries, in his only two years in the NFL, is not a question mark? ... Bc

    I really, really liked this guy coming out of college, and it's a shame about how his career has gone thus far. I'd definitely love to see him in purple after a season recovering from his injury, the dude has serious talent and athletic ability.

    A player who is placed on IR does not count toward the roster limit, but non-vested veteran (less than 4 years of service time) must be 'waived - injured' and must pass through waivers before being placed on IR. This rule is in place to make teams think twice about using IR to stash young players on IR.

    If the Ravens (or any team) claims a player off of injury waivers and wants to keep him, they must keep him until the 1 st cut down at which time injury waivers no longer applies.

    The update is that the Colts did waive him yesterday. I'm not sure how much time it takes to clear waivers but we should know soon.

    Itt's 24 hours, so claims must be placed by today. There should be news by 4:00 today.

    If he clears waivers and I was Ozzie, I'd be all over that. Offer him a 2-3 year deal worth vet minimum. Let him IR and rehab this season and haul ass next spring/summer.

    First i think they need at least somewhat plausible injury before we go IRing but this was my first concern as well. After first cuts it doesnt apply? So last cut it seems safe to put him on IR without risk of losing him. I guess the problem is that they needed the roster spot now and couldnt wait until first cuts to do it safely. Kind of a gamble and honestly there has to be somebody else worth cutting before losing out on a young talent like that. Not sure i understand the thinking here.

    Unless he is REALLY injured, Streeter will make the cut - and be on the final 53

    We can once the first cutdown date arrives. If they want a replacement in they have to go through this same waiver claim process. Honestly is getting an arena league player in for camp worth losing a 2nd round draft pick? Guess the Colts think so.

    My understanding is that if he clears waivers he's going to stay with the Colts on IR. Teams need to place a waiver claim to get him.
