Roster roulette continues today

Saturday was a crazy one here at PFT, with all hands on deck to keep up with the various cuts and trades and waivers and other moves.

Thanks to Rosenthal, MDS, and Silva for taking an oar and rowing this boat in something other than an endless circle.

Their effort paid off, with 1.92 million page views, far and away a PFT record for the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

The frenetic pace continues today.  As Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News pointed out a little while ago on Twitter, the period for claiming players who were waived ends at noon ET today.  Thereafter, the rush for practice-squad players will begin.

Players with fewer than four years of service (like Pat White) must pass through waivers; players with four or more years of service (like Matt Leinart) instantly become free agents when cut.

So the game of musical chairs will continue.  As we explained last night, some of the guys who made it through the reduction to 53 will inevitably be bumped from the roster by a player who arrives via waivers or who is signed as a free agent.

I’ve got a family reunion to attend this afternoon, but the rest of the crew will be keeping you up to date, both here and at our Twitter account, until 6:00 p.m. ET or so, when I drag my stomach full of pasta and soda pop back to PFT headquarters.

    Yea, I’m sure they can handle it…..I mean really….how hard is it to cut and paste legitimate news from other sources?

    They have to do at least twice the amount of work your giving them credit for since they have to cut and paste illegitimate news as well.

    Sadly I can see you and your OCD disorder having page view records for every day of the year.

    Silva is a nice change of pace, nice to see him back now and then. Good commentary without the Mike and Gregg touch.
    MDS used to be until you and Gregg dragged him to the darkside.

    Nosredna–Hey man if you don’t like the purpose of the site, then leave and don’t post your kaka here. How hard is that to understand???

    Florio you’re going to a family renion? Let us know how the prison food tastes.

  15. MOH says: Sep 5, 2010 12:06 PM

    Great job keeping up with the hordes of info! Grats on the hits as they’re well deserved. We may complain a lot, but we really do appreciate all the hard work and effort that’s put into this site.

    Florio I hear those West Virginia family reunions are good places to pick up women!

  17. Setobakura says: Sep 5, 2010 12:32 PM

    Will you post a Florio family picture on the site?

  18. therewasone says: Sep 5, 2010 1:23 PM

    Thanks to all of you guys for making it easy to keep up with the moves.

  19. Drat says: Sep 5, 2010 1:23 PM

    I’m glad you guys are keeping us up with the various “cuts … and waivers”, both! Thanks for the extra work.

    Good work, Florio, et. al
    Let the haterz hate – some rapper said this.

    See how you write when you KNOW something. “Im going to a family reunion” If you were reporting that Vincent Jackson or someone was, it would take you 2 paragraphs and you would still end it with the words . “OR NOT”.
