    And I repeat:

    Only kidding with you. I think teams are allowed 54 now which includes the 3rd QB. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though. As far as positions, I think we'll clearly know more as preseason progress and we see the play of the WRs and any injuries/recoveries at various positions.

    QB - 3
    OL - 8
    FB - 2
    RB - 3
    WR - 6
    TE - 3
    P - 1
    K - 1
    LS - 1
    DL - 6
    LB - 8
    CB - 6
    S - 5

    EDITED - Withdrew 1 LB to get down to 53 man roster.

    You can have 54 players on the final roster, but the 3rd QB designation or emergency quarterback no longer exists.

    You are going with two FBs even though Casey has been designated to be an option?

    It is currently 53 man rosters for each team, the only thing that has changed is the number of active players on gameday. It has gone up by one to 46 active players, 7 inactive players for a total of 53.

    They also dropped the 3rd QB rule from the league as part of this change. So teams can use that active spot however they like.

    First time I ever thought to ask (or first time ADD allowed the question), but what is the purpose of leaving players inactive?
