Just wanted to add this, I missed it during a dramatic time:

Roster sizes are increasing, including the practice squad

As a tradeoff for adding another week to the regular season and two more playoff games, the NFL will increase roster sizes. The active roster will expand from 53 to 55 and the practice squad will grow from 12 players to 14. Altogether, thatís 128 more NFL players earning a salary. It helps too that an extra active players on game day will lighten the load for their teammates.


I don't know if that's an immediate change or not.
