Local Dog Placed on Waivers

Jeffrey, a five-year veteran dog with the Frinklin household, has been placed on waivers due to what the club termed “excessive barking and almost inconceivable flatulence.” Ensie Frinklin, the family’s managing general partner, advised reporters that the family attempted to trade Jeffrey over the weekend, but a possible deal with a neighboring family fell through when that family requested a draft pick in addition to the veteran Shepard/pit bull mix.

“We thought we had the deal done –Jeffrey for a young hamster and a kitten to be named later- but at the last moment our unnamed trading partner demanded a 3rd-round draft pick, “ explained Mrs. Frinklin. “That was just more than we were willing to deal.”

Jeffrey, signed as an undrafted free agent in 2001, inked a 9-year extension following the 2003 season. He will remain on waivers for the next 48 hours. If claimed by a new household they will be on the hook for the remaining seven years on Jeffrey’s contract. If no team claims the dog, he will be able to sign a new deal with any interested team.

That was very funny. Did you have any takers?

Nope... passed through waivers and we're stuck with his contract.
