    Brandian Ross who got released last week of the Roster and added to the Practice Squad has been poached by.....shocker....Reggie McKenzie. No worries. Good luck and hopefully he gets some action.

    Like last season, a practice squad player's minimum salary is $5,700 a week. There is no maximum amount for a practice squad salary, and teams in the past have paid extra to players to lure them from another team. However, practice squad salaries do count against the salary cap, a change that started last year with the new collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

    Wow...even at the minimum that is decent money. I could be living large if I made 22k+ per month. If there is no max amount, how can they get away with that? i will admit I have a limited understanding of how the practice squad and their rules and regulations work. So, essentially you could be on the practice squad and make big bucks that don't count against the salary cap just so that the team can retain you for future use, right? Is there a limit as to how long you can be on the practice squad?
