Yes. That could plausibly happen, but what is more likely is that we resign one of the veterans we let go after week one so we would only be obligated to paying them week by week. A veteran on the roster as of week one is guaranteed their whole year's salary whether they are on the roster or not.

Absolutely hate that rule...

That makes it worse for not keeping Ozigbo and playing that game with number 27. I don't think anyone would have picked him up.

Idk, I think it might give an average veteran player more incentive to not sign with another team and be the 54th man they yo-yo on and off the roster.

2nd string, young and cheap. The guy had the best preseason on the team. I fear coach is back in the throw it 50 times mode.

Ozigbo was clearly not ready for the 53 man roster. You don't want one of your roster RB's to be one that can't handle pass protection (the number one issue that haunts rookie RB's.)
He looked like he handled pass protection to me and I taped every game.

Screw it. Starting Murray. It's either him or Sammy Watkins but he's drawing Bouye so that ain't an option. Murray should do ok. Losing Clowney was massive to that line. They have some riff raft now they are saying will do fine. Yeah right.

I'm interested in seeing if Ozigbo gets any work. I bet he get a couple of passes at least.

Agreed, Payton made a big mistake. Not sure what he was thinking keeping Washington over Ozigbo.

Just wait, it will come back to haunt us.

Oh I donít disagree about Ozigboís potential... I think he has all the traits to be a quality rotational back early in his career. If weíre great at landing undrafted RBís another one will come along next year.
