We posted this up on the homepage as well today, this is what we see every offseason. Normally the practice squad players are some of the first to get signed to these types of contracts. Then they go out and look for some diamonds in the rough to add to the offseason roster.

About 1/3 of these players, at best, will make the practice squad for the coming season under normal circumstances.

I'd like to see that Jerrod Johnosn get a chance at QB back-up. The dude is a stud with a big arm.
