Default Re: Texans random thought of the day

Just using Mallet as an example, if NE were to waive Mallet in the final cut, how does this work as regard to his signing with a new team? Is it under his old contract? Or is a new contract negotiated? What if the two parties are unable to come to an agreement? Does he become a free agent, or does the second team get their chance at signing him? What time periods are in place for negotiations and coming to an agreement?

If a player is just released, as opposed to being waived, does he become a free agent? For the original team holding the player's contract, what is the difference in choosing one option over the other?
