Default 60 man rosters

I think that rosters should be expanded to 60.
Each position should have a starter and a back-up.
That means 22 on defense, and 22 on offense. For a total or 44.
Plus 2 kickers, and 2 punters, and 2 return specialists. total 50.
Then there should be 10 special teamers. total 60.

Practice squad should have player from each group.
1 D lineman
1 O lineman
1 LB
1 RB
1 QB
1 WR
1 LS / C

total 68.

Playoff time has too many guys playing hurt. Its a shame to lose a playoff game after a long season, just because you have so many injuries that guys have to play injured.
Practice squad guys should be paid $1,000.00 a week. And a set wage of $10,000.00 a game when they suit up.
Backups should not be paid more than 25% of the starters salary.

You could manage the cap better, and develop more talent.

Default Re: 60 man rosters

That is a terrible idea haha. The rosters should just be bumped up to 55, so you can let 48 players be active instead of 46. Two extra players go a long way. No team would want to sign an extra punter and kicker. They would have to pay so many back-ups just to be 3rd Stringers for the whole season. Teams would be bankrupt with that amount of players on one team for every season. Ticket prices would be up the roof and there would be so many upset NFL players that never get a chance to playq
