I cannot remember when we put Lilja on waivers, was that the same year Carl was hoping Roaf really wasn't going to retire?

Right I knew that, I was wondering if that was the same year when CP kept holding a roster spot open for Roaf?

He's been with the colts since like 2004, so I don't think so.

Isn't Lilja a guard?

It was for some defensive lineman Vermeil wanted to keep, who I don't think even made the team.

no, the willie Roaf retirement was a surprise, because earlier that off-season Roaf talked Will Shields out of retirement. The right before training camp started Roaf retired, kind of ditching Shields since Roaf was the one to talk him out of it...i doubt Lilja had anything to do with anything on this.

Roaf's decision was on the day they left for training camp. Team had no clue at all.
