    Is this guy stuck in the character creation screen?

    To add to this, people that do this for a living like Zach Kruse are still saying that an injury settlement on Spriggs is certainly coming soon: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/08/25/packers-swing-and-miss-on-another-second-round-pick/ However, the injury settlement is only possible within 5 days of the Waived/Injured designation. https://overthecap.com/what-exactly-are-injury-settlements/ What's more, the Waived/Injured designation is mandatory for all non-vested veterans (less than four years of experience) so it was the only way Spriggs could be put on IR. It's NOT that the Packers chose to do this rather than outright IR him. https://www.profootballrumors.com/2019/06/nfl-waivers-difference-release With all of this in mind and unless I've missed something, there are only two possibilities here: The Packers wanted an injury settlement that Spriggs' agent felt was unfair and they couldn't reach a deal. Spriggs will remain on IR until he can pass a physical and then he will be released and become a FA. Spriggs really has a long term injury and the Packers really wanted to IR him. They will keep him there for the year and then either re-sign him for 2020 or let him walk as a FA, which would be weird after keeping him on IR through the year. I don't know, maybe I'm overthinking this but there's absolutely no news about him anywhere and most of the takes I read about him (e.g. injury settlement coming soon) are factually incorrect.

    I still don't know what the deal is with Spriggs. They didn't reach an injury settlement so if we want to waive him now, he'll have to pass a physical first. Did we ever get any word from the organization regarding this cut? It will be hilarious if we somehow resign him on the cheap for 2020.
  5. Packers are releasing former 2nd-round pick safety Josh Jones

    Why did you have to add this information

    Wait till he signs somewhere and people start complaining about how Gute was unable to get anything for him
  7. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Jenkins Edit: Keke has flashed too and Savage is looking good. The only disappointments are Gary and Sternberger but we knew these two needed time. I wouldn't say it's been a bad draft so far though it's still way too early to tell.

    The OTC article I quoted is from 2015, pretty sure nothing has changed.
  10. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    From OverTheCap: In order to qualify for the comp equation, a player must have been a true Unrestricted Free Agent whose contract had expired or was voided after the previous season (i.e., he cannot have been released by his old team); he must sign during the UFA signing period (which ended July 27 last year); if he signs after June 1[*], he must have been tendered a June 1 qualifying offer by his old team; his compensatory value or contract value must be above a specific minimum amount; and he cannot have been permanently released by his new team before a certain point in the season (which seems to be after Week 10) or, possibly, before getting a certain amount of playing time, unless he was claimed off waivers by another team

    I don't give you a like every time because I enjoy keeping you on the edge but I wanted you to know this is still funny to me.
