There was good news today for NFL teams looking to establish more depth and fringe players looking for more paychecks.
According to an NFL source, the league sent out a memo today saying the eight-man practice squad has been increased to 10 players.
The Vikings have several young players they like at key spots such as cornerback and offensive line. With the two extra practice squad spots, they, like every other team, will have more options available to develop players.
Players released from the active roster must clear waivers before being placed on the practice squad. They also can be signed to any other team’s 53-man roster.
