NFL making a good decision with roster rules
The NFL instituted some really good roster rules last season in light of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to give teams more flexibility. The good news is that many of those rules are here to stay and will be in effect for the upcoming season.
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reported on Wednesday that all signs are pointing to the NFL and NFLPA keeping the roster rules from last season. Below are some of the details.
I love the new IR rules from last season as well as the new practice squad rules. I also think the league needs to expand the size of rosters from 53 to at least 60 and maybe even expand practice squad sizes. With the league now having 17 games for the regular season, there’s a good chance there will be even more injuries.
Now the roster rules from last season will also help with injuries, so this is definitely a win for the players and the NFLPA, but some other rule changes would help as well.
