PACKERS’ PRACTICE SQUAD
WAIVER CLAIMS AND SIGNINGS
Wow! The Packers trade for a punter. They pick up Rams P Ray Bojorquez and 2023 7th Round pick for a 2023 6th Round pick. There’s a new weapon in town.
2021 PRACTICE SQUAD RULES
- 16 players on a practice squad — six more than previous seasons.
- Six of the 16 slots can be used on players of ANY experience level.
- Teams can protect up to four practice squad players per week (to be designated on Tuesdays) who cannot be signed by another team the remainder of the week.
Players can be activated on game day before the team announces their inactives. A player doesn’t necessarily have to be signed to the main roster for the move. This can happen with up to two practice squad players per week, but the same player can’t be elevated two weeks in a row and can only be elevated twice per season before he would have to be signed to the active roster his third time.
