Practice Squad Rules- The Basics

With all the discussions going on about what to do with Chase Minnifeild, it became clear to me that some of us are not sure what makes a player eligible for the practice squad. I figured I would write a Fan Post to help educate those so they can more confidently discuss what should be done with a prospect. So lets get in to it a little bit.

  • A player must not have been on a teams 46 man game day roster for more than eight games in any accrued season.
  • A player must not have been on a teams practice squad for more than two years. A team may place a player on the practice squad for a third year only if that teams roster has never fallen below 53 players during players employment. If that teams roster does drop below the 53 man base, the third year PS player automatically gets called up to the 53 man roster.

So that's the basics. I hope this has helped some of you.

HTTR!
