Tracking all of the 2016 NFL practice squad signings and waiver claims

New, comment

We’re keeping track of all of the practice squad additions and waiver transactions around the NFL.

The final roster cut deadline has passed, but NFL teams are still trying to nail down their 53-man rosters. Hundreds of players hit the market during cuts, and we’ll see plenty of transactions in the coming days as teams add and subtract from rosters to field the best team they can this season.

All of those players who hit the waiver wire can also be snatched up by other teams and added to the active roster. Other players will be holding out hope that some other team will sign them or invite them to join its practice squad.

The NFL and NFLPA agreed to some changes to the practice squad rules, which expands eligibility for some players. It’s good for players, because it extends their opportunity to catch on with an NFL team. It’s good for teams, because they’re able to retain more experienced players on the practice squad.

Being added to the practice squad can be the stepping stone necessary to catch on with a team and become an impact player. It’s the exception, and not the rule, but it certainly worked for Tony Romo, Danny Amendola and Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall.

We’re tracking all of the practice squad additions and waiver claims from all 32 teams below. Check back often for updates.
