I would have thought: 1. Galloway had a guaranteed salary on the Pats 2. If they waived him and some other team picked him up, they'd be responsible for paying the balance of his salary. 3. If he was cut and could choose where he signed, the Pats would have to pay his salary for the whole year. I'm guessing at least one of those is wrong, however, perhaps #3 in that (here comes my guess) it was an agreed-upon cut. Does anybody have insight into all this, and confidence in that insight? Similarly questions could be asked about other vets, of course.
