Craig Roh signed by Carolina Panthers
Good for Roh -- high-character guy. It would be nice to see him have at least a small NFL run.
I wonder how much practice squad guys make? Good for him though!
$5,700 is the minimum that they can be paid a week. But some players might receive more than that if he is a sought after player but not enough to make a teams roster yet. Practice Squad amounts do count towards the Cap limit however.
So that's still a 60,00+ check at the end of the year if they stay on the PS squad all year. But that would get a huge bump once a guy gets signed to an active roster. Not too bad of a pay check for most guys.
I'd take $5700 a week and be a very happy bastard.
Minimum wage is 6,000 per week
Yea your right. I didn't notice the article I read was a year old.
Do they get benefits? Such as health insurance, vision, dental, and prescription coverage? 401(k), or profit sharing?
NBCSports confirms it - (LINK)
"The Panthers also signed wide receiver Brenton Bersin, safety Robert Lester, running back Tauren Poole, defensive end Craig Roh, wide receiver James Shaw and defensive tackle Casey Walker to practice-squad contracts. Lester, Roh and Walker are rookies."
Good to hear, and hopefully Roh is on the active squad at some point.
Jordan Kovacs just tweeted that he was signed to the Dolphins practice squad
Way to go, Jordan!
Awesome! Foot in the door is significantly better than null!
Makes me wonder why Van Bergen wasn't signed to a team
making the Cardinals roster, he was cut today as they were awarded two linemen from waivers. But the article on their website notes that Kenny is "practice squad eligible." Considering he wasn't cut until today, and for need, they must like him enough to put him on the squad whether now or later. Presumably their squad will be named tomorrow.
Unfortunately, Roy Rountree didn't make the Bengals' practice squad. Too bad they don't have a comedy squad. He'd have been a sure thing.
