Looks like we got another Duck but he is a rookie so I still think we need a vet. Hey at least he is from a known D like Pitt. I not sure why but I feel better getting one of their rejects than the Lions. lol
If you claim a player off of waivers then you claim his current contract as well. If you let the player clear waivers then the player is a free agent and a new deal is done. Panthers claimed Harris off of waivers so they claimed his contract aswell. Panthers had 5 million in cap space at the start of training camp so they had some wiggle room to manuver with.
