Tracking the most significant 2017 NFL practice squad signings and waiver claims

These are the most important moves as teams scramble to fill out the practices squads and tweak the final rosters.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Training Camp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

As NFL teams make their final roster cuts to get down to their 53-man squads, several players who meet the league’s eligibility requirements could still end up on a team’s practice squad.

With the league rule change this season eliminating the first round of cuts, there will be more players than ever available on waivers. Teams have until noon Sunday following the Week 4 preseason game to claim players for their active rosters before players can be signed to the practice squad. At 1 p.m. ET, each team can start signing up to 10 players to their practice squads.

The practice squad is a great way for young talent to continue developing before being thrust into the spotlight. They’ll have the same opportunities as the active roster during the week, but don’t occupy space on the sideline on game days.

We’ll keep track of the most significant signings here as they’re announced.
