    I don't see a thread for practice squad ideas yet.

    Early ones include:

    Nunn, obviously

    Tyson DeVree, now that the Bills have cut him, and especially because they're a Week 1 opponent

    Your two, plus
    any of today's released DLs.

    I'd also like a QB there, to make the scout team throws.

    Nunn....BUT I am afraid he will be history...GONE to KC..Cleve..Den..someone...YUK!!
    Richard..again hoping he will stay here....
    DeVree..of course..he had his shot..a young TE...if not possible Bear Pascoe who was released by SF.....
    And MAYBE if no team picks him up...maybe WR Mike Hass..
    And maybe's on these two WR Ortiz or CB Love....MAYBE...

    Richard was a numbers issue, no more; if they could have kept him on the 53, they would have.

    Obviously not, judging by O'Connell. . . .

    I'd take a gander at Bryan Smith, an undersized pass-rushing DE who looked like an obvious developmental OLB coming out of college last year. The Eagles surprisingly drafted him at #80 overall in 2008 and tried to keep him at DE. Just cut, PS eligible.

    I would expect the Pats to bring in a couple of O-linemen. A C/G and an OT.

    I'd also expect Daryl Richard and Titus Adams to be signed to the practice squad.

    I don't think that Love will be brought back.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pats add a QB to the Practice Squd to give Brady and Hoyer rest during the season.

    Practice squad eligibility confuses the hell out of me, admittedly, but for some reason I thought that Adams didn't have any left?

    After much debate, (and using JT O'Sullivan as the example) it comes down to this.

    1) A player can only be on the PS for 3 seasons
    2) To be eligible, a player can not have been on the GAME DAY roster for 9 or more games.

    And, I stand corrected. Adams was on the Jets PS in 2006, the Bengals PS in 2007 (for 1 week), and then the Pats PS in 2008.

    He shouldn't have signed with the Bengals dammit..

    If I remember rightly you only get credited (debited?) a year on a PS if you were on there for 3 weeks.

    edit: Having just googled the rules, I'm 100% confused, BUT pats1 yesterday said Adams does have eligibility. And he knows all.

    I didn't think Adams was eligible..BUT corrected by Pats1..3 weeks is what counts as a year...he was only on for 1...so is still eligible..I AGREE it's not at all easy with players who have been out and about a few years, especially if a player is injured and then has only partial time on a PSquad etc.

    How long does it take to clear waivers after being cut and what is the process for a cut player to end up on another teams PS?

    Teams can start assembling their PS today. Saw something on Cleveland's PS on ProFootballTalk, but nothing on Patriots as of yet.

    PFT is announcing all of the Practice Squads as they get them. They just started with Buffalos.

    Just so I am clear on the other PS rules ...

    You can sign any FA to your PS, assuming they have eligibility left? And you can sign any player from a PS to your roster of 53?
