    I'm thrilled Gurley made it. Question though. Can a team claim a player off the practice squad??

    Absolutely. They have to put them on the active roster though but you can pick players. The Pack picked up Nance last year off Atlanta's PC.

    Great to see West and Gurley there. Awesome.

    Glad to see Harrell made it on there. Ross and Gurley were good additions as well. I'm a little surprised no one picked up Gurley.

    Yes, from my understanding any team can claim a player off another team's practice squad.
    However, that player then is added to the acquiring team's active roster. The fact that these
    players all ready cleared waivers shows that there wasn't huge interest in them, but there is
    still a chance another team may add them later on in the year.

    I'm glad to see Gurley, West, Harrell and Dominguez are still part of the team at this time.

    I thought I remembered they could be claimed but wasn't entirely sure. Thanks.

    What about Gordy? Did a different team pick him up? I would have rather had him than Ross, but overall I'm very happy about this. I really like that Gurley, West, Harrell, and Saine made it.

    I'm sure it won't be long before 2 of the players on the practice squad will get called up to play for us. It is only a matter of time before our players start dropping like fleas knowing our luck.

    Happy for Harrell, West, & Gurley. I think they all have potential.

    Haven't seen anything on Gordy. I guess teams are waiting on Pat Lee! ;)

    I didn't see anything out of Saine to warrant a spot on the practice squad. Must have been impressive in practice.

    like this squad a lot, unfortunately that probably means some of them will be signed by other teams.

    And I didn't see anything out of Pat Lee to warrant a place on the 53 roster.

    Question: When Team A wishes to sign a player off of Team B's practice squad, does Team B get a last chance to bump that player up onto their roster (i.e. "right of first refusal")?

    When a team wants to sign a player off another teams PS, the player has to agree to the transaction. A player CAN refuse the second teams offer and stay on the PS. So in a sense, yes a 'right of first refusal' does exist: If a player is on Team A's practice squad, and Team B makes that player an offer to be on their 53 man roster, Team A can offer the player a spot and elevate them from the squad. But that means releasing a player currently on the 53. Just about every player on a PS wants to be on an active roster pretty bad, so when an offer comes along most players take it and sign to Team B.
