Question about Practice Squad

11 posts in this topic

No

I'm no genius on the subject... But if this indeed is true, then what's the point of even having a practice squad. I can see them not making game day trips.

I would find it incredibly hard to believe that the PS squad guys are not traveling to IMG in Tampa with the rest of the team though.

Point of practice squad is for practice and grooming...and bodies if you need to add someone to your roster later on. But they don't travel....

This week could be an exception (not sure) since Carolina is displaced for the week but they don't travel to regular road games,

This week is a different animal than most "normal" weeks. PS players don't even get to be on the sidelines during home games; they definitely don't travel to away games. They may be with the team at the IMG facility, but that's probably only to fulfill their game-week duties in practice.

Thanks for rephrasing what I already said.

Although I didn't bring up this week because I thought that was pretty obvious.

Ok, so if a practice squad player is called up to the supplement the roster, does he get a new contract that equals out to the league minimum, and does that impact this years cap or next years cap?

I believe he's signed as a FA to a new contract. Someone tweet Keiser and ask.

Additionally the new CBA gives any team the right to sign a roster squad player of any other team to a contract for the 53 man squad (@NFL active salary, three week minimum. Can't sign a player from a team you will play within 6 days). The practice squad is essentially a week to week contract with those 7 players. The designation is worth $5700 a week.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
