Good. I didn't want him on the practice squad and have the opportunity for another team to come in and snatch him. Can't wait to see him on the field.

What does getting him signed have to do with keeping him off the practice squad?

Allright! One more in the fold. I think we'll really enjoy watching this guy develop as he's learning behind the best in the business. Sure hope he becomes the "steal" that's been mentioned so many times.

This is good news. That leaves Jackson, Tate, and Graham left to sign. I think the Texans are ahead of most teams in their signings.

Only 16 days left until TC starts!

I am really excited about Dickerson. He could be the next Marques Colston!!!

Hopefully injuries don't cause him to get significant playing time too early. I am very comfortable with our top 4 WRs (AJ, KW, JJ, and DA). Having a developmental prospect with Dickerson's potential is just icing on the cake.

Not to mention what he can bring to the table on special teams. Joe Marciano is gonna have a field day with a guy like Dickerson who has WR speed and isn't afraid to get physical as evidenced by his stint as a LB during college.

Dorin's (20th of the 7th, 227 overall) contract is 4 years, $1.84 million. Troy Nolan's (14th of the 7th, 223 overall) contract was 4 years, $1.808. Sounds about right to me considering the % it rises every year.

The practic squad isn't formed until after all the pre-season cuts are made. His contract signing here doesn't matter in terms of whether or not he is on the practice squad. Yes, players can be claimed by another team, but in relative terms it is done a low percentge of the time, because the team claiming the player has to place the practice squad player on the regular roster.

That's what I'd read here before but on NFLN the preseason show of Hard Knocks, Dallas had a player they place on the PS and Philly offered him more money but to go on their PS and he chose to stay with Dallas. So do they or don't they have to be placed on the team?

A player on the practice squad can negotiate with any team. If they sign with a new team they have to be placed on the 53 man roster for three games. So they can choose to stay on the practice squad if they want.

Was just about to post this

After noon EST on September 2nd, each club may establish a Practice Squad of no more than eight (8) players who are free agents.The practice squad shall consist of the following players, provided that they have not served more than two previous seasons on a Practice Squad: (i) players who do not have an Accrued Season of NFL experience; and (ii) free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Accrued Season(s). An otherwise eligible player may be a practice squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment. A player shall be deemed to have served on a Practice Squad in a season if he has passed the club’s physical and been a member of the club’s Practice Squad for at least three regular season or postseason games during his first two Practice Squad seasons, and for at least one regular season or postseason game during his third Practice Squad season. (A bye week counts as a game provided that the player is not terminated until after the regular season or postseason weekend in question.) and who did not dress for more than eight (8) regular season games during their only accrued (i.e., on the 53 man roster for at least 6 games) season. Minimum salary for a practice squad player shall be $4,700 per week for the 2006-07 League Years, $5,200 per week for the 2008-10 League Years and the 2011 League Year if it is an Uncapped Year, and $5,700 per week for the 2011 League Year if it is a Capped Year and the 2012 League Year, including postseason weeks in which his Club is in the playoffs. Aigher salary can be negotiated. In addition, a player under contract to a club as a Practice Squad player is completely free to sign a contract with another NFL club during the season in order to be on the second club's Active/Inactive (i.e., 53 man) list. A practice squad player may not sign an NFL Player Contract with his Club’s next opponent later than 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the sixth day preceding the game (except in bye weeks, when the prohibition commences on the tenth day preceding the game).If another club signs a Practice Squad player to its 53 man roster it does not have to provide any sort of compensation to the player's former club but it generally must keep the player on the 53 man roster for at least 3 weeks, thereby mandating that he earns in 2007 the minimum first year salary for said 3 week period ($285,000 prorated weekly). Also note that a team can add and release players from the practice squad as often as it desires and the eight (8) man limit does not have to be maintained. A player may be on the practice squad for two seasons; three weeks on the practice squad count as a season. An otherwise eligible player may be a practice squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment. The League may elect to allow some or all Clubs to add to their practice squads one additional player, who shall not count against the limit above, whose citizenship and principal place of residence are outside the United States and its Territories (“International Player”). The League’s election in any one season shall not determine or affect its election in any subsequent season

Not to be a buzz kill but outside of them both being WRs drafted in the 7th round there is very little similarity between Dickerson and Colston. Dickerson is a superior athlete that is just now really focusing on being a WR. Colston didn't have the measurables but he played like a 10 year vet right out of the gate. Even size wise they are different with Colston being taller and Dickerson thicker. Doesn't mean I'm not a huge Dickerson fan, I look forward to watching his progress but he might not catch a single pass this entire season. Going to have to make an impact on ST this year. Even down the road I would be shocked if he ever reached Colston's level but it would certainly be nice.

I have a question that I didn't see the answer to in this document that pertains to the pay of drafted rookies who end up on the PS. If a drafted rookie signs his rookie contract, like Dickerson, and then doesn't make the 53 man roster, but is put on the PS, does he:

A) lose his contract and gets paid the weekly PS wage?
B) still get paid by his contract and not the PS wage?
C) get a partial payment from the contract plus the PS wage?
or
D) get paid some other way not listed?

What is it TTP always says? Inquiring minds want to know!
