NFL Announces Offseason Rosters Will Be Expanded

During the NFL offseason, team rosters are expanded from the regular-season limit of 53 players. The 80-player threshold in the spring and the summer allows for unsigned and undrafted players to have a chance to impress teams and make an NFL squad prior to the beginning of the season. Starting this year, even more players will receive an opportunity each offseason.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports that the league will officially be expanding the offseason roster limit from 80 to 90 players, as of 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

For the Philadelphia Eagles, this means an extra 10 players each year to test out and comb through in case they find that one unexpected component that might be the missing piece each year.
