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.

According to the sources that are talking about this, yes.

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.

I agree with this.  I have never fully understood why if you are on the active roster you can't dress.  

 

I like the 10 practice squad players but I don't care that you have to waive them first.  Risking losing a player you have spent time on developing.

 

Increase the roster size to 63 allow for 53 active and 10 practice squad but you can call any up at any time.  Kind of like baseball does with pitchers in the minors.  They bring one up for a spot start and option another player to the AAA club until they are finished with the spot start.

 

Keep the tenure rule for Practice Squad too.

I love the idea. More spots available means more jobs. Not to mention it gives us the chance to stash more players. We have lost many good players in the past and we may of been able to keep them with more roster spots.


If I was Rodger Goodell I would make a minor league for the NFL. Not only would it bring in money but it would help develop players. Also it would create more job opportunities in the NFL.
