Signing Those Cut Vested Veterans

A reminder to those fans who will be screaming when their favorite teams don't jump right out and sign some of the veteran players who will be jettisoned this weekend: Vested veterans who are on a team's roster for the opening game are guaranteed their entire base salary for the year. That means, unless a club is certain a vested veteran (at least four years accrued toward the NFL pension plan) can be of immediate help, and will last the year on the roster, it will wait until after the opener to sign him. Teams will bring in a lot of veterans for workouts next week, analyze the auditions, and then delay signing guys until the second week of the campaign to avoid having to guarantee salaries.

Remember we like those short term 1 year contracts this year
