quote: Waive as in cut from the team?
Yes, being waived is like being cut, except it applies to players with less than 4 years (IIRC) experience. If he were, say a 5th year player, he would be "cut." Being waived = teams can make a claim on him. If he clears waivers then he becomes a free agent and can go where he pleases.
