2008 Patriots Practice Squad

Patriots Sign Six to Practice Squad

With cut time rapidly approaching, the New England Patriots front-office staff will begin to determine who their targets are for the Practice Squad — players must clear waivers before being placed on the squad. The eligibilty requirements are a bit convoluted, but with some great work by patchick at patsfans.com, here are the rules:

  • Player must not have an accrued season (or were inactive seven or more times during the accrued season)
  • Player must not have been on a practice squad for more than three years
  • During third year on practice squad, player must be added to 53-man squad if a spot opens up

By these criteria, the following Patriots, in addition to all of our rookies, would be eligible for the practice squad–provided that another team doesn’t place a waiver claim.

  • OL — Jimmy Martin
  • DB — Antwain Spann
  • S/WR — Raymond Ventrone
  • OL — Dan Connolly
  • CB — Mike Richardson
  • QB — Matt Gutierrez
  • DT — Titus Adams
  • CB — Jeff Shoate

    Jimmy Martin will never clear waivers. He has played very well in the first two preseason games.

    Raymond Ventrone is Troy Smith light, I hope he makes the active roster.
