Expanded NFL Roster Discussions

  • When the NFL conducts their meetings this spring, has the topic of expanded rosters say from 53 to 57 been put on the agenda? I seem to remember a discussion of expanding rosters to offset concussions? Does anyone remember this??

  • I vaguely remember this. But I believe they were talking about only expanding it to 55. So 2 more players per roster, which may not seem like a big deal. But it can mean something in the team's overall depth.

  • Seems like it was centered around Redskin GM Allen suggestion that the K, P and LS not count against the 53.

  • Works for me. 3 extra players would prove very useful. It beats the hell out of trying to expand the league. THAT is a BAD idea.

  • Can they expand the roster size during the current CBA? Would they want to? It is all about the money and adding 4 slots with the increased minimum would mean close to $3M minimum if the minimum salary escalates as reported in the new CBA. I think it goes to close to $700K by the end of the deal or more (could be wrong, just my recollection).

    How do K, P and LS not count against the roster? They play the game just like everyone else. They have just as much as a part of the team as everyone else.

    I think the reasoning is that those particular positions do not get injured as often and are on the field a lot less. So why not use the count against the roster for the positions that are on the field a majority of the time and are more prone to injuries. It's not like their not on the team or anything. Accountants do this kind thing all the time. Hey look at the federal government!
