Certificate Waived LoR in my hand?

Is it ok if i waive my rights but then i would be the one sending the sealed envelope w/ LOR inside? i am not registered to aamc/eras yet & got no dsf sheet/coverletter to give to the writer for him to send. so the writer gave the LOR to me in a sealed envelope & he said 'i mentioned in the letter you waived your rights'.. therefore it means cannot send it as "not waive my rights", but then i have the LOR in my hand.

A waived LoR should be sent by the letter writer himself not by you.

I would guess that you can do the following:

When ERAS opens, you send the LoR but put the sender's address as the letter writer's address, not yours.
