The practice squad shall consist of the following players, provided that they have not served more than two previous seasons on a Practice Squad: (i) players who do not have an Accrued Season of NFL experience; and (ii) free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Accrued Season(s). An otherwise eligible player may be a practice squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment. A player shall be deemed to have served on a Practice Squad in a season if he has passed the club’s physical and been a member of the club’s Practice Squad for at least three regular season or postseason games during his first two Practice Squad seasons, and for at least one regular season or postseason game during his third Practice Squad season. (A bye week counts as a game provided that the player is not terminated until after the regular season or postseason weekend in question.) and who did not dress for more than eight (8) regular season games during their only accrued (i.e., on the 53 man roster for at least 6 games) season.
Just looking at who would in this case still be Practice Squad eligible of the cuts, any CBA lawyers wanna help out that would be great, :
Dallas Baker - I think is still eligible as I think despite being on the 53 man roster for 9 games last year he was inactive for one game.
Jason Capizzi - Doesn't have an accrued NFL season and has done 2 years on the Practice Squad. Should be eligible.
Piotr Czech - eligible
Bruce Davis - I think he's eligible... only dressed for 5 games last year (his only accrued season) so I think he fits the rule.
Tyler Grisham - eligible
Sonny Harris - eligible
Tom Korte - eligible
Roy Lewis - eligible. Doesn't have an accrued season, though he was on the active roster for a couple of games last year
Anthony Madison - not eligible. Has more than 1 accrued season on an NFL active roster
Steve McClendon - eligible
Jeremy Parquet - ineligible - has more than 1 accrued season (2005 with KC and 2008 with us)
Scott Paxson - eligible I think. May not even have one full accrued season but even if he does he wasn't dressed for 9 games so he should get one more shot on the PS
Isaac Redman - eligible
Mike Reilly - eligible
Andrew Schantz - eligible
Dezmond Sherrod - eligible
A.Q. Shipley - eligible
Justin Vincent - eligible
Brandon Williams - ineligible I think, I believe he has more than 1 accrued season
Donovan Woods - eligible. 2008 was an accrued season for him (on active roster for more than 6 games) but dressed for less than 9 so he remains PS eligible
Did I miss anyone? TO sum up, including that not dressed for more than 9 games, a lot more guys are eligible than I thought. I think 17 of our cuts may be Practice Squad eligible. So who will the 8 be?
Capizzi, Shipley, Woods, Reilly, Davis, Harris, Baker, Roy Lewis perhaps?
