Practice squad players still get payed to!

A PS squad player gets paid mad cash yo. I'd want to be a Practice squad guy.

That's great that it pisses you off and good for them that they have been given "a shot." However, this is a business first, and a sport second. If you don't get drafted, you instantly have a slimmer chance of making the roster than the players that were drafted. These "undrafted gems" you speak of don't show up very often and for every "undrafted gem" you can mention, I can mention a first round player that is considered to be one of the best in the game. The fact is most of these undrafted guys if any of them won't even see the third week of the preseason. No need to get offended, they are getting there chance and I'm sure they will make the most of it but don't expect them to go out there and make the team.

If you want to speak on "business", you should know a businessman leaves no stone unturned when looking to make a profit. Not saying they will make the team, but we had 3 of our UFA make it last year and helped this team in some way. It's possible it will happen again.

Also teams look for a chance to sign the cheaper guy to do the same job equally, if not better than the guy making more money that he's competing with. That would be the business aspect.

Last year was also a rebuilding year for this team and through countless injuries UDFA's among with other players that wouldn't be on teams like the Packers and Giants rosters were able to find refuge with the Panthers.

If you think that any of these guys is more than a camp body you are highly mistaken. These guys are brought in to fill out a roster and if one pans out great but if they don't then the team has the "who cares" attitude. The players got a nice little stipend for participating and now they will move on into the next stage of their life whatever that may be.

Absolutely. I mean guys like Tramon Williams, Antonio Pierce, Ryan Grant, Shaun O'Hara, Cullen Jenkins, and Sam Shields would never have made the Packers or Giants rosters in the last 10 years and become very good players. And those are just from the Giants and Packers. I could go on. I know the odds are against them. But to count out every single guy is just stupidity. Some of the UFAs out there will make some teams, and some will be very good players for a long time. Never fails.

Look, I can't do this all night I have things to do but. You can put your faith all you want into these guys but if they don't turn out to be great, don't get to upset.

You can't fill out a team with 1st rounders, can't explain it to you, I guess you're too dense. But have fun thinking that every roster is filled with blue-chippers from the first 3 rounds of the draft. I could give you plenty of examples of 1st round busts but I'm sure that wouldn't register as evidence for you either. Can't fix stupid.

More roster spots are filled with drafted players than with udfa's. Can't fix ignorant.

You act like none of the UFAs even have a shot. THAT is ignorant.

They have a better shot than you and I but that's not really something to write home about.

You are making a very "ignorant" argument. You just can't admit what you said earlier was rather in poor taste. To say UDFA's all suck, is poor form. Sure, they are probably not going to make a huge impact, but to make such a wide-sweeping statement is what makes you "ignorant". You have went away from your original saying of "they all suck" to, "most guys on a team are drafted". You messed up on your first statement, and that's fine. However, please stop trying to defend such a poor position...

I just quoted you to say.... You are right, this guy is dense, as you said earlier.

Arian Foster = Best RB in the NFL right now and he was an UDFA.

Tony Romo = Damn good QB that starts and was an UDFA

James Harrison = Damn good starting LB that was an UDFA

There's plenty of stories that go both ways, but to say they all suck is just stupid.

McCarty has some major speed and agility, just a small school guy. I actually expect him to make the team as the fourth back.

Well, all I know is that I could never make even a practice squad. Yes, compared to the starters they may mostly be camp fodder. But even to make it onto a pro team's practice squad says to me they play the game better than the average gridiron warrior. Not saying they'll be eventual Pro Bowlers, but at least let's give them some credit for making it as far as they have, and let's wish them luck on going even further if they have the talent!
