    Just cut someone who you promised a spot and sign him, like we do. Players are not people anyway, just acorns. This is why I love Ireland so much.

    The thing about releasing Francis and Randall was not so much about them but about who we kept in their place. Now it turns out we have injuries in the DB which explains why we're rolling with Stanford and Don Jones. That still leaves our four scrub backup LBs, though.

    I'd love to get the inside scoop on what goes on with this "sign to get info" thing. What's the proper etiquette, if any? Do some players actually refuse to cooperate in that regard?
    Why so gloomy?

    Yea because a player would not divulge anything to a team that gave him an NFL contract to come back to Miami for 6000 a week. Thats beyond silly.
    If thats the case why would NE cut him when he could do the same thing to them.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    well I guess tampering with a coach that has a job would not be considered cheating. THE NFL disagreed and thats why we lost draft picks when we signed Don Shula.

    Not sure why people think any player would be that loyal to a team that just cut u. Let me see a rookie's minimum is 405,000 a year so u think a player would jeopardize that to possibly go back to us and make 96,000.
    That logic just doesnt add up esp for a guy that could be cut from practice squad at anytime.

    bask in that dream then. im just trying to figure out why anyone would be that altruistic lol. i want to know why any guy that is trying to make the nfl would make that idiotic gamble. now if its a choice between practice squads
    why not choose who u went to training camp with.
    hell the pats may pick him back up as a roster player next week

    he got cut for only one of two reasons. one he wasnt that good or two they need a different position on sunday

    Hell must have frozen over !!! I agree with Dlox that Francis would be a fool to opt for the Fins PS (where he can be poached at any time by anyone including The Belicheats) when he can be on a pro roster earning bigger bucks and at least having the opportunity to compete for a more permanent status. Now that's not to say that the best of all worlds for him would be to placed on our active roster as clearly he wants to be here if all other things are equal.
