The rules prohibit you from moving a guy to your roster from the PS and then back to the PS from your roster. You have to waive him, let him clear waivers, and then re-sign him.

Trindon is a guy they'd like to have on the roster but they just don't have enough spots for him with the injuries we've had. So he gets bounced around.

That's life on the bubble.

I wonder at what point someone decides to quit dealing with the bullshit and saying I have had enough of this, just keep me or drop me.

I would think that he is being talked to by the coaches and understands what is going on. Sucks to be on the bubble, but better than under the bubble.

Everybody's got their own point when they say, "OK. That's it. I'm done. I'm not going to be the next superstar."

But most players hang on to the bubble as long as they can and occasionally someone works their way up.

Yeah I understand all of that I would just think that eventually my ego would over rule the amount of money I would be making. I mean this guy could leave football and probably still make some money doing track/field stuff (which I think is what he was doing before football).

But yeah I am sure the coaches are talking to him about it and everything.

If it were any other player, I would probably agree. But Holliday is 5'5 and the only thing he has going for him is that he's really, really fast. Chances are no other team is going to take a chance on him, at least for the rest of this year. Might as well keep going on the merry go round ride and hope you get another chance this season.

Many would-be players would kill to be in Holliday's position. He's got a defacto roster spot with a clear shot at being a long-term player. He and his agent very much understand the situation.

Well I'm hoping Holliday will be successful. He could be really fun to watch!

Chances are it sounds worse than it is. I bet he never cleaned out his locker. Most of us knew this was going to happen when they signed Demos.

Trindon will still bring home more than I will this year.

Practice Squad typically get around $5,000 per week. If they are bumped up to active roster its a minimum of ~$24,000 if a rookie. More for each year of service.

Yes but this is what.....his third contract this year? At least?

Dude is making some serious change on the signing bonuses.

Do other teams massage the P-Squad like we do?

So he's making close to 100k a year to be on the practice squad, that's not too hateful.

Practice squad players practice alongside regular roster players during the week, but they are not allowed to play in actual games. They can be paid considerably less than active squad players: The minimum salary from 2008 to 2010 is $5,200 per week (2008-2010)[1] for 17 weeks, or $88,400 per season, in comparison to the NFL minimum rookie salary of $285,000. Some practice squad players are paid considerably more, however. In 2006, the New England Patriots paid third-year player Billy Yates the full $425,000 he would have earned on the active roster.[2]
