    Question

    Good evening all, how was everyone's day? So I'm reading everyone's opinions on who should and shouldn't make the team, and I have to ask....what happens to the players who don't make it?

    Some will get picked up by others teams, many will end up on the practice squad of the team that cut them. The rest....try again next year or just sit by the phone and wait for an injury to someone.

    So the ones who end up on the practice squad...do they get paid at all for that?

    Also, you said the rest can try out next year...does that mean any random person who's not in college can just try out for the NFL?

    The practice squads are limited to, I believe, 8 players and yes, they are paid by their team.

    "Try out" may be a misnomer. Usually, teams call former players after someone has been injured to fill the roster spot. An interesting aspect on this is say a safety is injured the team might bring in an offensive tackle. It all depends on what the depth chart looks like and what the teams needs are at the time of the roster spot opening up.

    Some will end up playing for the Canadian Football League or arena leagues. For many, it's a harsh reality that they need to find another way to support themselves.
