Default Alec Lemon on IR

Funny how the good one's always seem to get hurt right before roster cuts.

What a surprise! Hope that "right hamstring injury" heals up by next year.

Default Re: Alec Lemon on IR

How does this work out money-wise? What's the benefit of Lemon allowing the Texans to place him on IR instead of allowing him to look for work elsewhere? He seemed to flash enough talent to get some looks elsewhere.

For the most part , it guarantee's his contract for the season , he may or may not get a deal with another team .... Being an UDFA , the safe bet is to take the $$ and sit.
He'll spend a year with the team .... giving him the time to absorb the offense and have a solid shot at making next years 53.

That makes sense and also explains why I don't gamble. I rarely take the safe bet.

So he gets the rookie minimum for his time on IR? I mean, there has to be some kind of financial reward for this.

I don't know how much his contract was to begin with , but most likely a rookie min deal. That's something like $470k I believe ... If he likes the situation here and his chances to make the roster next season I can see why he went that route.

The reward is that he gets a guaranteed paycheck for a year while taking no risk of real injury by playing also giving him time to really learn our system and put him that much further ahead for next year. If released he also runs the chance that no one picks him up, no paycheck. I really like this move and like what I saw from Lemon in preseason. Our new found depth at WR should remove the position from our list of needs in the 2014 draft.
