If they don't expect him to be a major contributor this year why keep him on the roster?
I'd love it if he shows up and blows everyone away this year, but I'm not betting the rent money on that happening.
To turn your question around, why would they cut him at this point? There is no harm or money wasted in bringing him to camp and seeing if he's ready to contribute. If he's not, I'd expect he's gone before the season starts.
