    Got waived because the Chargers needed another RB on the roster as they have one of their guys out for tonorrow.

    I suspect he resigns with them on Monday or Tuesday.

  3. Wont be out of work for long

  4. McCoil most likely will hang tight for a few more weeks to see if another team signs him. Might come back to the CFL for the playoffs if not signed by a NFL team. He will probably go with the Eskimos or Roughriders but could go anywhere the best chance to win a Grey Cup is.
