NFL expands practice squad to 10

Posted Aug 19, 2014

The NFL expanded their practice squads from eight to 10 players Tuesday and opened up two of those spots for players who have earned no more than two accrued seasons of free agency credit. The other eight spots are for players with no accrued seasons.

The Bengals now have an extra pool of players to put on the squad, which is formed after the Aug. 30 final cut to 53 players. Not counting rookies, they have 36 players with two or fewer accrued NFL seasons.
