JíMon Moore was a Packer fan favorite for a while .. though Iím not sure where he fits here other than a LONG shot
All practice squad guys are long shots. That is what makes them interesting. We have hope that one of OUR practice squad players turns in to something and not some guy on another team.
I like the idea of a practice squad, but the NFL doesn't do it right. In baseball most good prospects spend 4-5 years in the minors before the team gives up on them or they finally make the majors.
I know the NFL isn't going to have a out and out farm system, but I would like to see practice squads expanded by maybe 5 players. I would also like to see where a team can keep a player on a practice squad as long as they want. I don't know what the rule is, but I am pretty sure a kid can't stay on a practice squad 5 years. Why not? If a team wants to keep them, let them keep paying him. I would also like to see teams being able to "protect" 2-3 practice squad players. You would have to pay them more, but if a team wanted to poach him, they would have to surrender maybe a 6th round pick or make a trade for the player, with no trade deadline on those players.
If everybody had like minds, we would never learn.
