  3. Starting in 2017, each NFL team may keep up to ten members on its practice squad in addition to the 53-member main roster. A majority of those on a practice squad are rookie draft picks and undrafted free agents who were released prior to the regular season. A practice squad also includes veterans, up to four as of the 2016 season.[11] Players may be signed to a practice squad for several reasons: for lack of space on the team, due to injury, or because they require more development. Practice squad players can be signed to any team's 53-man active roster, without compensation to their former team, at any time during the season. A player cannot participate on the practice squad for more than three seasons; he is eligible for a third season only if the team has at least 53 players on its active/inactive list for the duration of that player's employment, or have no prior accrued seasons in the NFL (an accrued season is six or more games on the active roster); or if he has accrued a year of NFL experience on a club's 53-man active roster. If the player was on the active list for fewer than nine games during their "only accrued season(s)", he maintains his eligibility for the practice squad. Games in which a player is listed as the third-string quarterback do not count as being on the active list.[12] Former quarterback Mike Quinn, who was listed as the third-string quarterback for several teams throughout his career, is a notable example, being practice squad eligible during his 8th NFL season.[13] The Rook

    MAN, I hate to get rid of a Blunt. Seriously, I think he (along with Parham and Bee) did well enough for PS. We'll see. The Rook

    WR Cam Sims 2019 Campaign

    I thought it was interesting that, although Cam Sims was open on the TD throw, Haskins made the harder throw to S Sims. I think Steve Sims bailed out Haskins on that throw. I wonder if Haskins was unsure of Cam because of the previous drop, OR he is not comfortable with his "touch" passing OR maybe he just was locked in on his first read. The Rook
  6. I remember the first time I saw him in his rookie year and was amazed. He certainly deserved that OROY award that year. Thank you #22. RIP The Rook
  7. Is anyone else tired of the title of this thread being "New Development: ..."? If there was ever an example of a topic that needed a title of "No Development: ...", this is it. Seriously, wouldn't it be great if the OP would change the title to include the date if/when there are real developments? The Rook
  8. Thank you Sonny. One of the finest QB's , and the team of Sonny, Sam and Frank was one of the all-time best broadcast teams. The Rook
  9. Thanks for posting that. The Rook

    Press Release: #Redskins Quotes - Gruden

    Historically, (when healthy) he has only had trouble with two things - separation and consistently catching the ball. Of course, sadly, the same thing could be said about me as an NFL Wide Receiver. Seriously, I'm rooting for Josh. The Rook

    Mason Foster released

    One cannot anticipate the evil manipulations of the dread Bruce Allen. (Insert evil laugh here) The Rook

    Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Hmmm ... Does the Redskins lead the NFL in number of QB's under contract or are they just tied with multiple others? It was so hot here yesterday, I swore I saw a hobbit throw a ring into my backyard! The Rook

    Would you pay to go to Training Camp

    Burgold, I agree. Although I would love for my grandkids to have a good experience at camp, the 3-4 people deep at the sidelines is another downer, so I won't be back. Make it Worth Paying For: I did enjoy when they had scrimmages against the Patriots, but not enough to pay to attend. A signed items guaranteed with every ticket? Getting better. Free water. Shade. Pictures with the cheerleaders. NFL experience activities for the kids. All those might do it I guess it also matters, what the cost is. The Rook

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Sigh Here's what I said: Some general thoughts: The years of wasted picks on crappy WR's instead of Oline and Dline continues to echo throughout the system. If you don't think failure of first and second round picks don't cascade through the years, we just have different opinions. The selection of Doctson is a great example. The Rook.
  15. Definitely enjoyed Kaczor's comments. The Rook
