Tracking The 2014 Houston Texans Practice Squad: Candidates, Rules, Salary, And More

Could EZ be staying in Houston on the Texans' practice squad? - Thomas B. Shea

NFL teams can start signing players to their practice squads today. See when it starts, how many players can be on a practice squad, and how much salary they'll earn as a practice squad player, along with a healthy dose of speculation about who the Houston Texans will add, on Battle Red Blog.

Starting at 11 a.m. CDT today, NFL teams can start signing players to their practice squads. With the league recently increasing the size of practice squads from eight (8) to ten (10) players, there's a bit more flexibility than there used to be. It also means that, potentially, another 64 players could keep their NFL dreams alive while earning $6,300.00 per week throughout the season to do so.

Who can be on the practice squad? From an earlier post:

...free agents who do not have an accrued season of free agency credit or who were on the 46-player active list for less than nine regular season games during each of any accrued seasons. A player cannot serve on the practice squad for more than three seasons.

With that in mind, who do you expect to see the Houston Texans sign to their practice squad? As I mentioned in yesterday's post detailing who made the initial 53-man roster, if they're not signed to the active rosters of other NFL teams, I believe Travis Labhart, Uzoma Nwachukwu, Anthony Denham, James Ferentz, Max Bullough, and Marcus Wiliams are significant possibilities for Houston's practice squad.

We'll update the Texans' practice squad signings here as they occur, and we'll get a separate post up detailing the entire practice squad roster once it's finalized. Until then, share your thoughts on possible practice squad candidates, as well as any reaction to practice squad signings or news from around the league, in the Comments below.
