I was bored today so i sent some messages on facebook to some nfl players on facebook
surprise some wrote back
Seppo Evwaraye OL For the vikings
me -What are the rules of the international practice squad what are the rules to it
i heard you can't even get promoted to the active roster
so how do you get on the active roster
him-Im guarenteed to a spot on the practise squad and the pay that comes with it for one year. I cant be promoted to the active roster this year. After the season the team can opt to offer me a real contract which would make me just like everyone else. There would be no more protection but If I make the team I get to play and get paid NFL-salary (295,000 for rookies) rather than practise squad money (79,900).
me-thanks for the quick responce
how you liking the vikings
him-No problem. Other than the losing I dont mind it at all. I get paid handsomely for not much work( 3 practises a week).
me-1 more thing what do you think of brooks being a jets fan i have met him a couple of times at training camp he is a nice guy
Could you start threads like this from now on earlier in the day? Earlier in the week even? It's now towards the end of the work week, and I could have been enjoying this all day/week rather than just seeing the initial phase of this thread, which is bound to go on for at least 5 or 6 pages, towards the end of my week.
