NEW YORK (June 14, 2005) - Eight international players have been added to the practice squad of eight NFL teams and will stay on them for the full 2005 season.

The eight will be on the practice squads of teams in the AFC West and NFC South, continuing a program that began last season, when NFC West teams carried one on their squads. Two of them, Mexican offensive lineman Rolando Cantu, who has signed with Arizona, and German defensive end Christian Mohr (Seattle ) have been added to regular rosters for training camps.

The eight practice squad players for this year are Peter Heyer, a guard from Germany with Kansas City; Klaus Alinen, a tight end from Finland with Atlanta; Richard Yancy, a safety from Germany with San Diego; Michael Quarshie, a defensive tackle from Finland with Oakland; Anders Akerstrom, a defensive end from Norway with New Orleans; Claudius Osei, a safety from Germany with Tampa Bay; Patrice Majondo-Mwamba, a defensive tackle from Belgium with Denver; and Aden Durde, a linebacker from Great Britain with Carolina.

Thats interesting, I didn't know American style football was played all over the world, or that they would be good enough to make a team. This is gonna get like the NBA.....
