    Thats how it works in the NFL. Teams will cut players they really want to keep at the last cut who they don't think any other team will pick up in order to get under the mandatory NFL player limit and then resign them and place them on the expanded practice squad roster. A lot of it has to do with salary cap maneuvering. Don't ask me to explain the salary cap. If I understood it I could get a high paying job as a Capologist for an NFL team.

    Benson made a HUGE mistake when he let Randy Mueller go. Glad I'm not a Saints fan. ;)
