I am not seeing him on the roster (injury list). I can find nothing on a transaction...anyone know anything?
From the Riderville transactions page:
TRF TO INJURED NIP Obed CETOUTE (WR) Central Michigan - to Saturday September 10^^
Yes, but if you look at the roster page he is not there atm. He was a few days back...on the 9 game
I'm aware. I was addressing the transaction solely.
He was released by the team yesterday.
...so he was on the 9-game, right? Did he have to be activated in order to be released? If he did, would his salary not then count against the cap, since he would have been pulled from the 9-game early?
No. It does not count against cap or as being pulled off the 9 game because - he was released healthy - if that makes any sense. I'll be back with the link.
Here's the link from today's Leader-Post.[url=http://www.leaderpost.com/sports/lineman+mulls+over+trade/5231529/story.html]http://www.leaderpost.com/sports/linema ... story.html[/url]
I believe injuries preseason that end up on the 9 game do not count on cap. Nor do I think do they count towards one of the three 9g a team is allowed per season. Unless the rule has changed in the last couple of years a team is allowed 1 9g in the first 1/2 of the season, one in the second and one floated. This was put in place to prevent teams from essentially having expanded rosters or keeping other teams from snagging up "their" players. I recall this rule from the 2008 season when 6 or 7 riders suffered broken legs and the team asked for an exemption to no avail.
Makes sense. Thanks!
