Not all players are eligible for the practice squad, which limits the pool of players who can be added to the 10-man squad. Given the NFL's lack of a developmental league, this is as good a solution as any for talented but inexperienced players to improve. A player has to dress for six games to have it count as an accrued season. Because of the nature of certain Injured Reserve rules, certain players had to make the 53-man roster before being put on the IR while staying eligible for the designated-for-return tag. In addition to the 10 players, teams participating in the International Player Development Program can also carry one international player to the practice squad.
Most of the members of a practice squad will be rookies or undrafted free agents. Teams are allowed to sign four players with two accrued seasons to the practice squad.
Practice squad players in 2019 can earn a minimum of $8,000 per week during the regular season and postseason, per the current CBA, but there is no cap on the amount practice squad players can receive.
