Cap room being used to stash practice squad players?

It's completely legit to offer PS players more $$ as an inducement to stay with us, but they still do have to clear waivers first.

 

 

...interesting...so the 8 grand/wk PS salary is a minimum? and a team can sweeten the pot leaving the player with the decision to decide if he gets poached and signed to an active 53 for rook minimum of $495,000 versus a higher PS salary?....did not know this.....:thumbsup:.....

Spare cap money is reserved for emergencies in case players go on season ending injury deals for the most part. 

And for whatever trades may fall their way.

Just a thought... As a way to make use of current cap space could Beane stash Duke and a couple other guys by paying them $2 million to join our practice squad? 

 

That would keep other teams away from a cheap poach and we've got the cash and cap room.

They have to go through waivers,first,so the money wont help Bills stash players

We need all the cap room possible so we can extend our 2021 first rounder in 5 years. 

 

You forgot about Harrison Phillips and Zay Jones. They’re gonna take up a big chunk and it’s coming faster than you think. Let’s not go crazy signing pro bowlers with these extensions looming.

Correct, it is a minimum.  "There is no cap on the amount a practice squad player can receive"

That's probably more than a couple people that beat them out. If they're worth 2 million a year, they should be on the roster.

 

I dunno about $2M/yr (you're probably right about that) but it's reported that the NE Patriots have the highest-paid practice squad in the league, and are at times paying more than active vet minimum to some players.

Phillips is in his 2nd year, I would think he would need to show a lot more than he has to even think about any type of extension. He's got 3 years left on his deal and hasn't really done much yet.

Oh sorry I was being sarcastic, but some ppl on here were saying that exact thing in the Clowney trade rumors thread as a reason not to trade for him.

Got it.  Makes more sense now.
