    So we cant just IR Streeter without risking losing him? or anyone else under 4 years for that matter

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.

    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.

    Correct. There's been far less stashing over the past couple of years, although the McAdoo to IR last Sept was a pretty obvious IR stash.

    For a Devil's Advocate point of view on Ijalana, here's a tidbit from one of the Dolts' blogs:

    Some conjecture and speculation, perhaps, but one gets the impression Indy was disappointed with Ijalana even apart from the injuries.

    Did anyone grab him off waivers

    I would assume that Caldwell was able to provide some valuable insight into Ijalana
