And there goes one wide receiver....but we really don't need to address the position at all do we......Jesus.

If this is serious then Byrd could be the worst all pro we've ever signed and possibly 56 million wasted, straight after the Galette fiasco.

I still have faith in Mickey and Sean, but jeez it sure seems like we are a financial mess, headed down a troublesome path. I hope I'm wrong...

Giving vets some rest. Letting the young guys get the reps. Not a big deal yet.

Re: Colston and Byrd on PUP

This makes the need for a proven receiver even more glaring.

Re: Colston and Byrd on PUP

Once training camp is over are the PUP players eligible to play in the pre-season games if required to do so?

Re: Colston and Byrd on PUP

Unable to Perform (PUP). There's the Active/PUP and the Reserve/PUP. Both PUP classifications are for football-related injuries.

The Active/PUP (Preseason PUP list) allows players who are unable to start training camp the ability to sit out until the medical staff provides clearance. Once they are medically cleared, they're allowed to practice immediately.

Second, there's the Reserve/PUP (regular season PUP list). Any player starting on the Active PUP list (and has not practiced) with the team becomes eligible for the Reserve/PUP at the end of training camp.

Once a player practices during training camp, all PUP list options are off the table.

Now a new rule change to the Reserve/PUP definition

Commencing on the day after the conclusion of the sixth regular season weekend (October 15) and continuing through the day after the conclusion of the 11th regular season weekend (November 19), clubs are permitted to begin practicing players on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform for a period not to exceed 21 calendar days. Pads and helmets are permitted during the 21-day period. At any time during the 21-day practice period, or prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the day after the conclusion of the 21-day period, clubs are permitted to restore such players on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform to their Active/Inactive List.

In other words you can place your key players with IR history on the PUP list till the 11th week. Just in time for the playoff run. Giving that player time to be at game speed for the playoffs. I see this a a profit margin rules change.
