I was wondering how many players you can have on the Practice squad team. Also I would like to hear any comments on who you think will make the PS.

Each NFL team may keep up to eight members on their "practice squad" in addition to their 53-member main roster. They consist mostly of rookies who were cut in training camps and borderline NFL-caliber players. Both rookies and young veterans are eligible for the practice squad. However, a player cannot participate on the practice squad for more than three seasons. Practice squad players practice alongside regular roster players during the week; however they are not allowed to play in actual games. They can be paid considerably less than active squad players: the minimum salary from 2008 to 2010 is $5,200 per week (2008-2010)[1] for 17 weeks, or $88,400 per season, in comparison to the NFL minimum rookie salary of $285,000. (Some practice squad players are paid considerably more, however: in 2006, the New England Patriots paid third-year player Billy Yates the full $425,000 he would have earned on the active roster.)[2]They are also ineligible for many fringe benefits such as service time, pensions, and the like. They hope to be promoted to the active roster either by their current team, or by another team who is scouting them. They retain free agent status and may sign with any team they wish without compensation to the original team.


As to current players Prob not more than 3-4. They will prob pick up 4 players from other teams as well.

my guesses:
WR- Johnny Quinn or Taj Smith
RB Kregg Lumpkin but he could make the team.
DT Rod Allen

Brett Swain, Kregg Lumpkin, Rodney Allen and Breno Giacomini and Danny Lansanah, I'd like from our current teams, but Breno was such a high pick, he might be taken.

Being a high pick means nothing.

The fact that he is 6'7 and only 22 is what will lead him to be picked up by another team if he is released. He is a specimen, some team will be willing to take a chance on him.

I wish you were allowed to have a practice squad in Madden.

Brett Swain.
Kregg Lumpkin.

:icon_smile: Doubt they'd let Flynn go to practice squad unless they manage to grab another QB off the wires.
