Waiver Transactions - An Indication of poor drafting?

 

There were 29 players cut by their original teams Saturday who were then signed by 15 teams yesterday.   A single waiver pick-up by a team is understandable, as was the case of the Ravens where injuries had created a depth issue at the Cornerback position.  But what does it say about a team that needs to make multiple waiver claims after setting their roster with the players they had drafted? 

Is this a sign of a poor front office evaluating talent and filling their needs in the draft?

Does this spell trouble for the upcoming season due to lack of quality depth?

Three teams signed more than two players cut by other teams.  These teams may surprise you as all three have playoff aspirations.

·       Arizona Cardinals added three players

·       New York Jets added three players

·       Miami Dolphins added 4 players

Most surprising is the Dolphins under Bill Parcells needing to find 4 players they didn’t either draft or sign as UFA’s in April.  The Jets are also curious after initially keeping 7 RB on their 53 man roster.

Here is the list of waiver transactions through yesterday.
