What does that even mean. He had one good season but pretty much a titty baby his whole career. Has the skills but too lazy to put in the work to improve from I have seen. He's out of pass cards at this point. It would take a decimation at WR for a team to pick him up.

Does this mean he has to sit out the year?

From my reading of the definition, that is correct.

Definitely a list you don't want to be placed on.

RESERVE/LEFT SQUAD. If a player leaves his club without permission after reporting to training camp, the club may place the player on its Reserve List as Left Squad, pursuant to the restrictions and procedures that appear in this section.
A club may also use the procedures of Reserve/Left Squad if a player who is assigned via waivers or trade fails to report to the assignee club.
A player who is placed on Reserve/Left Squad shall remain on the Reserve List of his club for the remainder of the regular season and postseason and shall not be eligible to be reinstated to the Active List of the club or any other club until the year following the season in which he was placed in such category. He is ineligible to play, practice, or attend meetings of his club or any club in the League or to use the facilities of his club or any other club in any manner whatsoever for the remainder of the regular season and postseason. No player in the category of Reserve/Left Squad may be traded to another club in the League in the same season in which he is placed in such category, nor may a club request waivers for or terminate a player who is on Reserve/Left Squad in the same season in which he is placed in such category
Any attempt by a club to use the category of Reserve/Left Squad in a manner to evade the player limit shall be considered conduct detrimental to the League.
