Best Answer

Waivers is being released by the NFL team, usually happens during training camp. Many players try out for every team but only 55 can be kept on the roster. Each team also has a scout team where they can sign players and they may practice with the team but are not eligible to play in regular season games. A scout team player may be signed to another NFL teams active roster at any time.
