    How do the players that are cut hook up with a new team?

    Is it first come, first served?

    So if a DB is cut by, lets say the Bills, and the Colts were really interested in the guy, all other 31 teams would have to pass on him for the Colts to sign him?

    Yup, waiver order based on last season's finishing positions. So poor teams have first chance to claim guys on waiver, while playoff teams are at the end of the queue.

    I think that's the way it works for guys with less than 4 years service time. For veterans I think they get released and not "waived" and can go wherever they please.

    I'm not sure though

    Honestly, I'm not 100% clear on how it works, but I know it depends on the difference between waivers and UFA. There's certain criteria for each. If a player is waived, then teams can put in a claim for him and then its done in that order. However, if a player is just cut and a UFA, they have the right to negotiate with any team as they like.

    notable cuts who could make the jets roster in my opinion :yes:

    1.kyle cook-center- minnesota i'd take this guy to backup mangold

    2.buster davis-lb-arizona i'd take buster over kassel or spencer

    3.ciatrick fason-rb-minnesota -sorry danny ware to the practice squad.

    4.J.R. reed-s- giants - special teams demon who can return kicks

    5. brandon frye-ot-cleveland - nice devoplemental tackle.

    Vets of over 4 years experience can choose to either be subject to waivers or elect to become FAs if cut. Guys with less than 4 years experience are all subject to waivers, with the poorer teams getting priority on claiming them based on last season's records.

    As far as wavers go, this is from the NFLPA site:

    [QUOTE]February 12, Monday

    * Waiver system begins for 2007. Players with at least four previous pension-credited seasons whom clubs desire to terminate are not subject to the waiver system until after the trading deadline in October.[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE]Q: How does the waiver system work??
    A: The following explanation was found in the 2005 NFL Record & Fact Book. As far as I can tell, it is still appropriate. "The waiver system is a procedure by which player contracts or NFL rights to players are made available by a club to other clubs in the league. During the procedure, the 30 other clubs either file claims to obtain the players or waive the opportunity to do so - thus the term "waiver." Claiming clubs are assigned players on a priority based on the inverse of won-and-lost standing. The claiming period is three business days from the beginning of the League Year through April 30, 10 days from May 1 through the last business day before July 4, and 24 hours after July 4 through the conclusion of the regular season. If a player passes through waivers unclaimed, he becomes a free agent. All waivers are no recall and no withdrawal. Under the CBA, from the beginning of the waiver system each year through the trading dealine (October 19 1999),[B] any veteran who has acquired four years of pension credit is not subject to the waiver system if the club desires to release him.[/B] After the trading deadline, such players are subject to the waiver system."

    I liked Oshinowo a lot in last year's draft, thought he looked like a good 3-4 NT prospect.

    But if the Browns (another 3-4 team) have given up on him so fast, it does call that into question.

    Wali Lundy and Ciatrick Fason could interest the Jets. But keep in mind they'd lose Danny Ware if they put him on the Practice Squad.
