CBS?:Saints to sign Robert Edwards Monday

I am up for signing carter and a healthy young player with potential. Don\'t want to see two aging injured guys. that is notlooking to the future.

Other question is why would carter be inactive this week? I heard it had to do with a league rule due his injury status. If that is so why would he be inactive for the 1st game of the seaason and not the first game he\'s signed as a player?

FW, the answer is simple. carter is a vested veteran. If he were on the roster for the 1st game of the season, the Saints would have had to guarantee his salary for the whole year. By waiting they don\'t. They risk loseing him to another team but they save money possibly.

Joesam, I understand about having to pay him a full year salasry if he is on the team to start the year. That in itself was a smart move by the saints.

Haslett said if he was on the team he would be inactive this week anyway. In other words if he was on the team he would not be able to play. My question is why would he not be able to play if he was on a team this week? Its a mute point but I never heard this rule before.
