  • David Terrell Temporarily Released

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2157916

    "Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, a vested veteran -- a player with four or more seasons accrued toward the NFL pension plan -- is guaranteed his full base salary for the year if he is on an opening-day roster. To avoid the guarantee, teams often release fringe vested players before the start of the season, then re-sign them after the opener. That takes a team off the hook for the guarantee and means if a player is subsequently released, the club is responsible only for the prorated share of his base salary

    At least three other vested players -- Pittsburgh quarterback Charlie Batch, Tennessee wide receiver Troy Edwards and Denver wide receiver David Terrell -- were released on Saturday to avoid the guarantee. All are expected to be re-signed by the club next week."

    Not to worry, he will be back after this week.

          I think its to avoid paying out a huge chunk of money for someone completely untested like Terrell is. Just incase he is a lemon.
          "On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."

            yeah, because the players association don't do their best to screw owners over and wipe their butts with contracts.

              Unfortunatley, this "game" is much more of a business than a game. It's just the nature of the beast and has been for quite some time now.
              Where does the abuse of end? Where?
