NFL “expected” to expand practice squads to 10 players 


This would be for the 2014 season   

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/18/report-nfl-expected-to-expand-practice-squads-to-10-players/

And would allow us keep some of our picks who don't have a chance to make the 2014 team

2014 #Jets have ridiculous depth. Practice squad adding 2 more spots is huge.

Re: NFL “expected” to expand practice squads to 10 players 


Since I've been wrong on virtually every prediction I've ever made in this board over the last 5 seasons, I will now predict our 10 man practice squad

QB Boyd
TE Pantale
OL Campbell (if eligible)
OL Zusevics
WR Hakim (if eligible)
DL Hyder
DL Finau (if eligible)
LB Reilly
LB George
CB Reeves
ROLL TIDE!

Re: NFL “expected” to expand practice squads to 10 players 


In memo to teams on expanded practice squad (now 10 players), NFL now allows teams to have up 2 PS players w/no more than 2 accrued seasons





So you could now have a player with 32 reg season games over 1st 2 seasons eligible still for practice squad in 3rd year...






Also, it will now require 6 games spent on a practice squad to count as a practice squad season. It used to require only 3 games

So guys like S Josh Bush, Rbs Micharl Smith and Darryl Richardson, G William Campbell, TE Chris Pantale, WR Michael CampBell and Salim Hakeem, LB Troy Davis, and OL Marcus Zusevics are all PS eligible

Good list but I think Richardson if exposed will absolutely be picked up by another team...maybe its a numbers game at RB  but  some team would take him..hell   the Giants could use him...

BS
The correct number of games is between 12 & 16.
12 games gives a player 2 FA accrued seasons.
16 games keeps the player under the 9 games in one season limit, yet allows for 2 years of accrued FA credit.

La Canfora needs to learn how to read better.

The NFL on Tuesday announced the formerly eight-man practice squad for the regular season is now 10, effective Aug. 31. The league also upped the maximum number of game-weeks spent on a practice squad for that season to count as one of a player’s maximum of three years of practice-squad eligibility, to six games. It used to be three.

There are other permutations to the new rule, including that a player with at least one season in the league has to have fewer than nine games spent on a team’s active list in any one season to be eligible for any team’s practice squad. An exception to that clause is that each team will be permitted to sign a maximum of two practice-squad players that have earned no more than two accrued seasons of free agency credit.


One FA accrued credit year earned = 6 weeks on a regular 53 man roster.

Credited vs. Accrued Seasons

The NFL determines the experience of its veterans through two different processes: Credited Seasons and Accrued Seasons. Though the two involve similar parameters to meet the experience requirements, they are used for different purposes.

Credited Seasons

Credited Seasons (CS) are the most frequently used form of experience. In order for a player to earn a credited season they must be on “full pay status for a total of three or more regular season games" (Article 26, Section 2, 146).

A player who is on the Exempt Commissioner Permission List, the Reserve PUP List, a team’s practice squad, or the Injured Reserve List will not accumulate games towards a CS.

A player on the Exempt Commissioner Permission List is suspended from the League, and a player who is in the midst of a suspension is not earning credit towards a CS in regards to this section.

Also, if a player is put on season-ending IR and does not meet the threshold for full pay status, he does not earn a CS.

Credited seasons are used for all of the following:

  • Minimum Salaries (Article 26)
  • Workers’ Compensation (Article 41)
  • Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle Retirement Plan (Article 53)
  • Second Career Savings Plan (Article 54)
  • Player Annuity Plan (Article 55)
  • Tuition Assistance Plan (Article 56)
  • Severance Pay (Article 60)
  • NFL Player Disability Plan (Article 61)
  • Long Term Care Insurance Plan (Article 62)
  • Gene Upshaw NFL Player Health Reimbursement Plan (Article 63)
  • Former Player Life Improvement Plan (Article 64)
  • Neuro-cognitive Disability Benefit (Article 65)


Accrued Seasons

Accrued Seasons determine a player’s free agency designations (Article. 8, Section 1, 34).

In order to accrue a season, a player must be on (or should have been on) full pay status for six or more  regular season games.
As  with players earning Credited Seasons, a player can’t accrue seasons if he is on the Exempt Commissioner Permission List, the Reserve PUP List, a team’s practice squad, or the Injured Reserve List.

There is another parameter for gaining an Accrued Season in the new CBA. Any player under contract with a team that fails to report within 30 days prior to the first regular season game will not receive a season towards free agency.

Players are also required to provide their services if under contract. A player who, for a “material” extent of time, fails to fulfill and perform will also lose an Accrued Season. This is unless the player can prove to the Impartial Arbitrator extreme personal hardship.

The following is a list of free agents by Accrued Seasons:

  • Exclusive Rights Free Agents – Two or less Accrued Seasons
  • Restricted Free Agents – Three Accrued Seasons
  • Unrestricted Free Agents – Four or more Accrued Seasons

Someone tweeted that QB Simms would be available for one of those 2 PS spots. Would he make it to the PS, or would the patriots grab him and set him up in the backroom for milking? devil

Correct me if I am wrong, but if a team claims a player from your PS then they have to include them on 53 man roster and active for a certain period of time.  Pats already have Mallett and Garropolo, so it mean cutting one of them or carrying 4 QBs which I doubt they or any other team would do.  If any QB is going to PS, it will be Boyd IMHO.

That is right, they have to sign them to their roster. To move them to the practice squad, they have to be released (waiver wire).

The jets could put Simms on the PS but pay him the same salary he is making now to disuade him from joining another team. noidea

Mallet is toast after the last preseason game. The rookie is playing well.

A player with at least one season in the league has to have fewer than nine games spent on a team’s active list in any one season to be eligible for any team’s practice squad.

Josh Bush has more than 9 games in TWO seasons. He is ineligible.

No player considered for the p/s can have more than 8 regular season games on a 53 man roster, in ANY season.

It's not the 53 man roster, but the active 46 I believe.




This is from your other post Hyatt.
