Good Luck Fred!!
Too bad. I thought Fred was in the midst of his best season last yr. But, I reckon between the injury and the fact that I don't think he fits the ideal mold for a ZBS guy, they thought it best to release him.
So, now we wait for the other shoe to drop, or as Newton stated - "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction."
not being callous, but out with the old Texans and let's move on to the new team.
best of luck Mr. Weary, but we need to cut ties with the previous remnants of this franchise.
Good luck Fred! Thanks for being a Texan.
You mean like Andre Johnson?
That's not being callous at all. It wasn't laden with hate or any of that stuff. You wished the guy luck and said it's time to move on...
Good luck Fred.
He was on the IR right, so no open roster spots ?
I think that's true.
I hope arbitration does right by him.
and I'm still not convinced that Brisell is better that a healthy Fred Weary. ...but he's not healthy.
If he was on the IR can one waiver him? I guess he would have been on the PUP?
The Chronic sed he was on IR.
10/14/2008....Released G Fred Weary from the reserve/injured list.
not sure if that opens a roster spot or not. where are our roster move lawyers?
I guess that would necessitate a settlement, or am I completely off here ?
The Chronic said an arbitrator would have to come in to make the call as to how much Fred is due - if anything. I would think he should get something.
Ok cool, think I've got it now. Thanks
Since he's on IR I don't think this opens up a roster spot, and since he was released while he was injured he can ask for an injury settlement. It's a shame because I thought, when healthy, he was a great compliment to Winston on the right side. Best of luck to him though.
A typical injury settlement would be to pay him for the amount of games it would take him to heal to game ready condition. The arbitrtor helps make that determination. Of course, individual cases vary.
Am I completely off in thinking that once a team and a player choses the settlement option, there is a fair chance that the players injury is so severe that his career is over?
Good luck Fred.
So the real question is, does Fred move away from Houston, and specifically, away from HPD?
