CB Sterling Moore signs with New Orleans Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I thought Finnegan looked good. Why not keep both? Experience. Cut Harris or one of the RB's. Nobody is going to pick them up....

agreed, or redshirt one of the DL or lb's
I really hope Finnegan didn't clean out his locker

If we had kept Finnegan for game one he would have gotten paid for the full year whether he was later cut or not. Not sure if Moore has enough playing time to get the same veteran guarantee.

Re: CB Sterling Moore signs with New Orleans Saints

It makes total sense. Moore is not a vested veteran (four or more years). Finnegan is. They can sign Moore prior to week one and cut him at any point and only be liable for games played. Now Finnegan, if not picked up, can be re-signed AFTER week one and will only be guaranteed four game checks if cut again before week four.

Re: CB Sterling Moore signs with New Orleans Saints

The big difference between the two imo is that Moore if it works out has long term value

Sterling Moore has played from 2011 -2015 (Bills cut him in 2016).

Why he wouldn't fall under the vested vet category per the terms of the CBA?

A vested veteran has four seasons of active roster experience. Moore had full seasons the last two years. Five games in 2013. Thirteen in 2012 and six in 2011. That adds up to 56 games experience. Four seasons would be 64 games. According to that he isn't yet vested.

I don't think years are defined by games as long as you have participated at some point in all of those years.

I have never heard anything to the contrary, and I see nothing anywhere that suggests 64 games is the benchmark to be considered a vested vet. If you have anything concrete that says 64 games, let me know. I don't see anything.
