I'm pretty sure it was because of re-entry waivers, if someone picked him up there, we would've been on the hook for half his salary and cap-hit, something we couldn't afford since we were so close to the cap for long stretches anyway. That doesn't explain however why he wasn't used in emergency-recall situations, but I guess since those recalls only played limited minutes anyway, Ruff wanted to plan for the future and test guys like Brennan...
