  1. Can you guys explain the practice squad rules/guidelines….
    Can teams sign players from anyone’s practice squad? Financial implications, etc?

  2. “Said Dolphins coach Tony Sparano of changing the pecking order of the team’s receivers, “Right now, I’m just upsetting the whole apple cart to see how this thing goes. So I don’t want to say yes, and I don’t want to say no.”
    Then just say “It is what it is…”, coach. That way, we’ll all understand exactly what you’re saying.

  3. Teams often discover an excellent safety from their roster that was drafted late or top notch O-Line man that was undrafted.
    Sometimes I wonder if there’s a hidden gem on the Lions roster. It only makes sense that if players suck, they’d slide down the depth chart and someone else would get a shot. Especially given the situation in Detroit.
