    That's probably it.

    He'd rather be unemployed.

    This. Technically, we get 9 spots.

    By the way, is Smith protected against being snatched by other teams?

    He's probably heading to the DNC convention right now.

    Aaitui would have been able to fill both Pouha and/or DeVito's role since he is 320 lbs...As opposed to Dixon who is more of a DE/DT at 285 lbs...JMO
    I think you might be right. But even that might have been a little bit of an overreaction by the Jets IMO. We have Ellis and Harrison.

    International Practice squad guys CAN NOT be signed off the PS by other teams.

    So if we get the extra spot b.c of Smith does that mean Aaitui can be placed on PS if he clears waiver. Or has that spot already been used.

    Thank you.

    I thought I had seen that somewhere but wasn't sure.

    Is each team only allowed one such player?

    I think we have one spot on the 8 man squad.

    Yes they are. The league has to approve the player first.

    Yes. 8 spots PLUS the International player. Not sure if the league has approved Smith as being an international player yet. That might be why there is a spot open.

    Confirmed that Marcus Dixon is back. Makes zero sense to me why he was cut in first place #nyj

    Really? Wow.

    It would appear that he's the epitome of an international player.

    He is. I am sure it a procedural thing and gets done on a certain date by the league.

    bingo.

    they basically rolled the dice that Dixon would still be available if they decided they weren't impressed by Aitui...probably a good gamble given that a lot of teams are waiting until after week one to sign veterans.

    I'm going with nefarious.

    If, for no other reason, it's a great word. Like usurious.

    Section 1. Practice Squads:

    • (a) The League may elect in any League Year in accordance with this Article to establish Practice Squads not to exceed eight (8) players per Club. The League’s election in any one season shall not determine or affect its election in any subsequent season.
    • (b) The League may elect to allow some or all Clubs to add to their Practice Squads one additional player, who shall not count against the limit above, whose citizenship and principal place of residence are outside the United States and its Territories (“International Player”). The League’s election in any one season shall not determine or affect its election in any subsequent season. Such International Players shall be subject to the same terms and conditions of employment that apply to other Practice Squad players except that they (1) may not, during the term of their Practice Squad Contract, negotiate or sign an NFL Player Contract with any Club; and (2) may not practice with any Club following the last Conference Championship Game unless both Conference Champion-ship teams have such a player. In addition, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4 below, such International Player shall be eligible to serve on a Practice Squad for three additional seasons after the completion of the player’s year(s) as an International Player. As set forth in Section 3 below, the weekly salary for such International Players shall not be included in the employing Club’s Team Salary and shall instead be deducted from the calculation of the Salary Cap in the same manner as any Player Benefit Cost.

    Hard Knocks: Philbin says, deep down, he has reservations on whether WR Gates is a football player -- now member of #Jets.
