    So I've been getting a few questions about the practice squad recently and I figured I'd try to explain it more thoroughly here... and answer any questions that you guys have.

    GM League 2010 Practice Squad Rules
    -Up to 5 players on a practice squad
    -$2.0M practice squad cap that is SEPARATE from your $58.0M team cap.
    -Players can only make $400K or less to be practice squad eligible.
    -Only players entering their first, second, and third seasons are practice squad eligible.
    -Other teams may steal your practice squad players IF they offer them a $400K contract and a spot on their 53 man roster.
    -Only players drafted this year in rounds 4-7 can be added to your practice squad (for player salary reasons).

    And a refresher, here's the rookie pay scale in the GM League this year.

    Draft Picks Salaries
    First Round Picks
    1 - 5 pick: $750,000
    6 - 10 Pick: $700,000
    11 - 20 Pick: $650,000
    21 - 32 Pick: $600,000

    Other round selections:
    2nd round: $500,000
    3rd round: $450,000
    4th-7th round: $300,000

    You guys can just add a practice squad section to your team page if you want, but you do not have to name your practice squad players until the roster freeze which is in April or May (I forget when exactly).

    If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask.

    So does that mean we can carry up to 58 players and 60 million in cap space in the meantime?

    I doubt it on the 60 million... but when you do cut down to 53, can you immediately load up your practice squad or do they have to be cut first?

    I don't really see a chance for anyone to pick off players from other teams practice squad if they don't have to post them until final rosters.

    I think we need to set a time table to set Practice squad I think they have to be added 1 week after the draft.

    i think its probably best to set aside players for the practice squad and just keep it as such, nothin like teams can snag the PS players or anything like that like the nfl does. just my opinion though.

    I believe that people draft 7th round picks and such where they don't have room on their 53 man roster. Or maybe they have a player they really like but isn't 53 man roster material.

    I am not going to force people to have a 53 man roster... people don't like change and that's the way it is. So if you are unwilling to put in a little extra research on players, that's not my problem. And I know that's why some people don't want to do it, whether they admit to it or not.

    The practice squad is simply to stash developmental players that you picked up in free agency or in the late rounds... It's not going to put a team over the top but it's something that will make this a little more fun for some people.

    I'm giving you a separate cap for practice squad players too, it's not like I'm screwing over your salary cap situation.

    It's going on this year, I made an announcement on it right away but clearly it didn't stick. There is a separate $2M designed strictly to your practice squad so no one can tell me "oh but my cap situation....."

    Do we have to cut a player before putting him on the PS or can we just move him and his salary over?

    No, just move him over. As long as he meets all the guidelines.

    You're right, it probably won't affect the voting... but if we go by your logic, what's the point of drafting past the 3rd round?

    so we can just move cap space to the practice squad to fit draft picks in? (as long as 400k or less of course)

    my understanding is you have a separate 2n budget for those players.

    but that basically functions to create an extra 2 million in cap space as long as you keep moving minimum $$ players.

    Does it have to be a drafted player or can we just add a UDFA to the PS immediately?

    If they are already on your practice squad, you can promote them without having to wait.

    question, lets say you name your five ps guys, but then aren't happy with one of them... can you cut one and sign someone else to your PS?

    You can cut them, but there really isn't much time to shift around between that type of stuff.
