Sean Payton advocating for increased roster sizes

quote:

Sean Payton says 46-man roster needs to change. Says if the league is interested in the healthy and safety of players, it needs to change. “It might cost a little more money, but that’s the price.” He adds: “That’s an ownership-only decision”


I agree

I’ve said the roster size should be unlimited. If you can fit 100 players under the cap, then go right ahead.

I don't disagree with this. If the Saints can only fit 50 players under the cap, but the Browns can fit 70, the Browns should be able to dress 70 players.

ETA: It adds an extra bit of gamesmanship to the rosters. Do you dress 40 players because you've tied up 85% of your cap in 7-8 stars, or do you dress 65 guys and rotate them as needed?

more players, less money per player.

I imagine the players union is against this.

That's insane. No.

But I agree that we should:

A) Get rid of actives and inactives and just have the whole roster active.

B) Increase roster size from 53 to 55, and allow some exemption for 1-2 practice squad players per game (sort of like the NBA two way contract thing).

They 100% would be against it. Marginal veteran players would get fricked. Teams will keep all of their cheap draft picks over a more expensive 4 year guy to fill out the bottom of the roster

Low-key jab at their hypocrisy.

It definitely seems like it should be a little higher, maybe up it to 50 on the active roster to make it a round number.

Does anyone know the reason why the 46 gameday roster exists instead ofbthe full 53 squad? Makes sense to me

Get rid of salary caps. Go to a 70 man roster.

No socialism in my NFL.

To provide an even playing field. The NFL doesn’t want one team to have an advantage if their opponent has more injuries to players.

All 53 are getting paid, I don't see why all 53 shouldn't be eligible on gameday. Doesn't seem like that would mess with owners' financial concerns.

And convert the IR to a disabled list with the ability to bring back everyone. Have 2-3 week, 6 week, season-long varieties.

Both of these ensure games are with 53 healthy bodies, player safety isn't jeopardized, and front offices don't have to play games with their roster.

i think at least they should go to 60 with 53 active

now for college i think both FCS and FBS should play with the 63 scholarship limit...
