    In multiple threads this year (and in previous years), people have claimed that no rookie ever gets claimed off waivers, saying it happens once or twice every few years. This is used as a rationale why all our rookies will survive to make the practice squad.

    We all shopuld know that at least four rookies we cut last year on cutdown day were claimed, plus the Dolphins took Gene Mrucowski- not a rookie, but we are not the only team to have players claimed on waivers. There are enough that the idea that teams will not add new players because their old ones know the system is pure bunk.

    Here are the some waiver wire claims (not all, doesn't have Jets taking our guys, so I know it isn't complete). Nevertheless, here are some claims for a couple of days from last year, which I hope will put to bed for once and for all that claiming rookies off the waiver wire on cutdown day is rare:
