Best Answer

When a contract is terminated it immediately makes the player a free agent and able to negotiate a new contract with another team. Often you will see this happen after a player comes of the injured reserve list. This is different than if a player is put on waivers. If a player is put on waivers and another team picks him up, the contract he signed with the team that waived him goes with him to the new team.
