The Titans and the rest of the NFL went through final cuts over the weekend. And now, most rosters are “set” for Week 1 after waivers and the practice squads filled up. Each NFL team is allowed to carry a 10-member practice squad, that does not count against the 53-man roster. A player is allowed a maximum of three seasons on the practice squad before becoming “practice squad ineligible”. If a player spends six weeks on the practice squad, that counts as one full year. There are many other practice squad rules and our buddies at Music City Miracles did a good job of breaking those down. Now, here is the Titans’ practice squad, for now at least.
Titans Practice Squad (in order of reporting)
QB – Tyler Ferguson
The Tennessee Titans are signing QB Tyler Ferguson (Western Kentucky) to the practice squad… Transferred from Penn State & Louisville.
