Yesterday the Washington Commanders cut their roster down from 80 to 53 players. The roster could see a few more changes shortly, but today the team is filling out their 17*-player practice squad. They claimed two DBs on waivers to add to the 53-man roster today, and didn’t have any players claimed on waivers

Teams started signing players to their practice squads after 12 pm when the waiver claims period ended. Washington has officially signed 15 players to their practice squad leaving two more spots to fill due to David Bada’s participation in the International Players Program. There is also the possibility a player released from another team will fill the last spot. Wes Martin was reportedly signing to the practice squad, but he was left off of the team’s official announcement. Veterans have some room to negotiate their weekly salary. He could also have other offers, or Washington is interested in another player or players.
