    There have been changes to the PS rules, but I can't find the actual rules. This was in the Rocky Mountain News on the 2nd.

    NEW LANDSCAPE: Teams were notified during a conference call this week that rules regarding practice- squad eligibility have been altered.

    Previously, a player only could land on that reserve list for two seasons; now, a third year has been added. A player can't return to the practice squad in the third season if he appears in one regular-season game.

    The regular-season limits are three games in the first two seasons in order to retain practice-squad eligibility.

    As an example, the new rule conceivably could allow the Broncos to put defensive end Corey Jackson on the practice squad again, where previously it couldn't.

    He's now running with the first-team nickel package, so it's unlikely. But that's the new kind of flexibility some teams could have with young prospects.

    - And you cannot be on the PS more than two years

    The teams that do that, get an extension on one or more of the cutdowns, but I can't remember the specifics.
    I had to go looking for an answer here...and have to correct myself. The rules changed this year on this part.

    The old way: 65 at first cut w/ exceptions for NFL Europe, 53 at second cut
    The new way: 75 at first cut w/ no exception, 53 at second cut

    My apologies to sneakers for correcting him when he was right.

    - David Terrell isn't elibible for the practice squad.

    - Cedric Cobbs is eligible...although it's questionable whether he'd clear waivers.
    Two things:

    First, does that take into account the extra players they get to keep for sending guys to NFL Europe? The teams that do that, get an extension on one or more of the cutdowns, but I can't remember the specifics.

    Second, what are the practice squad rules. I think it used to be only the first two years in the league, but they have added the ability for players to go on the practice squad in their third year, but I have read two different things. I have read that if they had less than three games in the NFL, they were eligible their third year, and I have also read one game.

    I am also clear on how many games Cobbs has played in. When I read about him, it says he has played in 3 games, but I can only find stats on three games his rookie year.

    - As for the name recognition on the 3rd string O-line: the acquisition of Meadows probably spelled the end for Carswell; with Myers in front of him, Eslinger will spend the year on the PS; and good riddance PJ...not at all sad to see you go.

    The third string O-Line includes Dwayne Carswell, Greg Eslinger and PJ Alexander. I think front office will think twice about cutting them.

    Nate Jackson is a solid pass catcher, his biggest problems have been his injuries. But the coaching staff can't have been keeping him around for nothing.

    BVP. Not great...but he's not been terrible in camp so far. And I don't want to see us carrying 2 QBs again.

    I'm still supporting Dayne and I hope he succeeds. He's not been great this offseason, I'll admit. But he's not warranted being cut as of yet.

    Cobbs may squeak onto the practice squad (4th round/2nd year I think...). Clark will (should clear waivers). Terrell on the PS though A 6 year veteran who got taken in the first round? No chance mate, no chance.

    I don't think Cobbs or Terrell would be eligible for practice squad. There is some limit, like you are only eligible in your first two years, or something like that.

    They should keep the UDFA rookie Brian Clark. I heard he was having a pretty good camp and who knows, could turn out to be the next Rod Smith (just saying, please do not yell at me).

    I googled the subject, and it says they cut down to 75 players on 8/29.
    That is the day after the 3rd preseason game.
    Then cut down to 53 players on september 2nd
    I think they get an exemption for the 3 NFL-E players till the last cut. Could be wrong but that is what I seem to remember.

    I hate it that mike bell is our KR. Let kircus do it. But I think that Charlie does get cut and Todd Devoe actually makes the Team

    Ugh, I'll be happy about one thing about Charlie Adams in that he is the guy that made it so Rod didn't have to return kicks, but he's also the same guy who averaged fewer than 10 yards per catch last year as our third reciever without that many catches.

    In short, he's not good enough to play in the NFL.

    If anybody could replace him on special teams, it would be a positive for us.

    Yeah they were right after the 3rd preseason game last year because I remember thinking it would have been nice to see Clarrett in action in the last preseason game but they cut him.
