NFL Rosters To Increase To 90 Players On Tuesday

One of the proposed bylaw changes this offseason was to increase the size of NFL rosters to 90 players. Last offseason, after the NFL lockout finally came to an end, teams were allowed to sign up to 90 players. Apparently the league liked the change, because that is how things will be again this offseason. From NFL spokesman Greg Aiello:

This change, which was approved today by the Management Council Executive Committee, means that teams will cut their roster down from 90 to 75 players after Week 3 of the preseason. Following Week 4 of the preseason, teams will have to get down to 53 players in advance of the regular season.

Essentially, this change will give teams the ability to take a look at more players during training camp. While everybody from UDFAs to unsigned draft picks will now count against the roster, come August, this will allow for more players to get into training camp and give their best shot at making an NFL team.
