The NFL announced on Wednesday that they are extending the number of players on each team's practice squad from eight players to ten.

That means each team is now allowed 63 players when you put the 53-man roster, and 10 player practice squad together at the end of the month.

It also means 64 more players will be employed this year.

In addition to the extra two players, the NFL changed the rules of how much experience those two extra players can have to be eligible for the squad. The new rule states the extra two players can have up to 32 games on an active roster over their first two seasons and still be eligible for the practice squad.

So, basically any 2012 or 2013 rookies are now eligible to fill those two additional practice squad positions. That means tight end Michael Egnew, linebacker Jelani Jenkins and safety Don Jones are now practice squad eligible. Before this change all three struggling veterans would not be.

Wonder what/which team motivated the NFL to make this change?

Every team has wanted an expansion of the PS for as long as I can remember, developing talent has not been a primary concern for the NFL for some reason...

Greed, the usual culprit, just more players that can potentially sue them, Goodell's got to get his 44 mil, how will he feed his children with just 40 mil.

:haha

I'd rather they expanded the actual roster.

Even by just 2 players, like they did with the practice squad, that would be a huge help.

Rumor has it that if they go to an 18 game season, they will expand the active roster by 5 players and the practice squad by 5 more. So that's 73 players the team can keep now.
