When NFL team owners in May voted to eliminate the first of two traditional roster cut-down periods before the start of the regular season, they gave coaches an extra week or so to evaluate players who may or may not make their teams. Those players, in turn, were given extra time to prove their worthiness.




But the NFL roster cut rule change also created what waa a chaotic — and in many cases, devastating — two-day stretch from Friday morning through Saturday afternoon.

NFL teams had until 4 p.m. ET Saturday to trim their 90-man rosters down to 53 players. Each team released up to 37 players, meaning more than 1,100 players around the NFL lost their jobs. While 320 of those players will be signed to practice squads (10 practice squad players per team), about 800 will not.

Here’s all you need to know about 2017 roster cuts and practice squad construction.

NFL practice squads: Deadline, rules

For 320 players, getting cut this week won’t be the end of the road in the NFL, as each team is granted 10 practice squad players in addition to its 53-man roster.

Teams have until 1 p.m. ET Sunday, a full hour after the waiver claim period following roster cuts ends, to establish their 10-man practice squads. Per the NFL: “No club, including the player’s prior club, will be permitted to sign a player to a Practice Player Contract until all clubs have received simultaneous notification via the above Personnel Notice that such player’s prior NFL Player Contract has been terminated via the waiver system.”

An NFL practice squad typically is made up of rookies and undrafted free agents who the team recently cut. Each team can carry up to four veterans — who can have no more than two accrued NFL seasons (six games on 53-man roster qualifies as an accrued season) — on its practice squad, and a player can’t be on a given practice squad for more than three seasons. Practice squad players are not eligible to play in games. Teams can sign players from other teams’ practice squads as long as the players are added to the new teams’ 53-man rosters (active/inactive).

The four teams in the NFC South — Falcons, Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers — are given an exemption in 2017 to carry 11 practice squad players as part of the NFL’s new International Player Pathway Program. The division was chosen in a random draw.




How much do NFL practice squad players make?

Practice squad players in 2017 can earn a minimum of $7,200 per week during the regular season and postseason, per the current CBA, but there is no cap on the amount practice squad players can receive.

The minimum salary for NFL practice squad players has increased and will continue to increase anually for the duration of the current CBA. The minimum weekly practice squad salaries for each year are below.

2011: $5,700
2012: $5,700
2013: $6,000
2014: $6,300
2015: $6,600
2016: $6,900
2017: $7,200
2018: $7,600
2019: $8,000
2020: $8,400

NFL roster cuts 2017: Deadline, rules

NFL teams before this year’s rule change cut players before and after their fourth and final preseason games. Now there’s only one cut-down period — after Week 4 preseason games, all of which were scheduled for Thursday night — but teams were able to cut players at will before Thursday.

The deadline for teams to trim their rosters (active/inactive lists) to 53 players is 4 p.m. ET Saturday. Per the NFL: “Simultaneously with the cut-down to 53, clubs that have players in the categories of Active/Physically Unable to Perform or Active/Non-Football Injury or Illness must select one of the following options: place player on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform or Reserve/Non-Football Injury or Illness, whichever is applicable; request waivers; terminate contract; trade contract; or continue to count the player on the Active List.”

For most teams, if not all of them, this will be a two-day process full of agonizing decisions regarding more than 30 players.

There is a waiver claim period for players who get cut, which ends Sunday at noon ET.
