real life free agents should have the option of not going through the waiver period
leagues should have the option of allowing or not allowing unsigned aka real life free agents to not be on the waiver period.

Guessing this was based off what happened with Josh Gordon and I fully agree. I asked for Gordon to be added to FA long before his reinstatement as this was done in the past with Calvin Johnson when rumours surfaced that he might come back but I was told this wouldn't be done. At least allow the player to not end up on waivers in that instance as they should've been in the system before this.
