Even though he is holding out, DB is occupying a spot on the 53-man roster, no? How long into his holdout do you think BB will wait before deciding to cut his losses and place DB on inactive list and free up a roster spot? Or does it not come to that? I'm thinking if offense looks good and we are in week 6 or 7, injuries are going to happen, Pats are going to need roster spots for healthy players who can actually help the team, and DB might get Keyshawned. What sort of impact does this have on his eligibility? Does he get credit for the year?
