I wondered that myself, then I though "wait a minute, Gill would need to prove himself as well"Originally posted by <b>el_Diablo</b>!
so, do they think gill is better than cook, since they gave him a "real" contract?
and still cook will play and gill won't. the only explanation that I can come up with is that they want to see if cook deserves a "real" contract too...

It's strange. Maybe it's simply that Portland couldn't sign him to a 10 day deal without putting another player on the IL, and Portland needed to have a 12 man active roster.
63. What is a 10-day contract?
A 10-day contract is just that, a player contract which lasts ten days (or three games, whichever comes later). These contracts are used to replace players who are on injured reserve. A team may sign a player to two 10-day contracts in one season (they may or may not be consecutive). After the second 10-day contract, the team can only retain the player by signing him for the remainder of the season.
Ten-day contracts are available to be used starting January 5 (or the first business day thereafter) each season.
