Every NFL team has made its set of roster cuts to get down to 53 players by Saturday, and on the final Sunday before the start of the 2019 NFL regular season, they’ll be getting to work on forming their respective 10-man practice squads and claiming players off of waivers.
Follow this post right here on Field Gulls for updates, reports, and confirmations of the Seattle Seahawks practice squad, as well as news of any Seahawks players who were released on Saturday and have signed with another team/joined another team’s practice squad.
Some basic practice squad rules, courtesy of SB Nation’s Dallas Cowboys site, BloggingTheBoys:
Practice squad basics
Each NFL team can have up to 10 players on its practice squad.
Practice squad players ... practice with the team. They do not play in games.
Not all players are eligible to be signed to NFL practice squads (see eligibility rules above).
Practice squad players are paid per week and can be released at any point during the season.
Practice squad players are free to sign with other NFL teams, but they have to be signed to the 53-man active roster of the acquiring team. A practice squad player cannot be signed to another practice squad unless he is first released.
A practice squad player can not sign with his team’s upcoming opponent, unless he does so six days before the upcoming game or 10 days if his team is currently on a bye week.
If a practice squad player is signed to the active roster, he will receive a minimum of three weekly paychecks, even if he is released before spending three weeks with the new team.
In order to be signed to a practice squad after being released, a player must first clear waivers, and is subject to waiver claims by other teams
