From 8 players to 10 players per Rotoworld

 

How do you think this affects our upcoming decisions now? 

 

The NFL is expected to increase the size of practice squads from eight to ten players this season.

That opens up 64 more jobs across the league, and each team will now employ 63 players. Teams will love it, as they're now able to stash even more potential talent and develop more youngsters across the season.

I agree with the idea.

 

Frankly, if it were up to me, the active roster limit would also be increased (to 55).

I agree. And gameday inactives would be a thing of the past. If they are on the active roster, they should be able to be active on gameday.

I'm actually okay with the whole 'gameday inactive' thing for the rationale behind it.

 

I don't necessarily think it needs to be eight players though.  I'd say five is enough, even on an expanded roster.
