Packers 2014 Practice Squad Signing Tracker

New, comments

The active roster was decided on Saturday, but we tracked the reported signings to the Packers' practice squad on Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers (and the rest of the teams in the National Football League) made their final roster cuts to reach a 53-man active roster. Waivers have now processed, and teams can begin signing players to their practice squad.

As Sunday and Monday go along, we'll be keeping track of confirmed signings to the Packers' 10-man squad. It's also worth going over a quick refresher of practice squad eligibility and rules. Here are the general eligibility requirements.

- The practice squad can consist of 10 players.
- Two spots can be used on players who have one or two Accrued Seasons but who would otherwise not fit the remaining conditions.
- The rest of the players must have either (1) no accrued seasons of play or (2) one accrued season but fewer than 9 games active on the game-day roster.

As of early Sunday afternoon, the Packers have one player signed to the practice squad: wide receiver Myles White.

Since White was active for only seven games in his rookie year (2013), he meets the standard eligibility requirements and does not take up one of the two spots that we'll refer to as "veterans".

12:10 PM: Safety Chris Banjo, who played all 16 games a year ago, has also been signed:

This is great news for the Packers. Banjo will count as of the two "veteran" spots because of his playing time last year.

12:35 PM: tight end Justin Perillo appears set to rejoin the team, as his aunt tweeted congratulations to him on making the practice squad.

12:40 PM: Good news, everyone! Cornerback Jumal Rolle is also back on the Packers practice squad after clearing waivers! (Or is he? Keep reading for more on Rolle...)

1:02 PMOffensive lineman Jeremy Vujnovich is the latest add.

1:08 PMRunning back Michael Hill is back as well.

2:00 PMThe Packers announced the full 10-man practice squad, but Jumal Rolle is nowhere to be found. Names not previously reported are: wide receivers Alex Gillett and Kevin Dorsey, linebacker Adrian Hubbard, defensive end Luther Robinson, and center Garth Gerhart.

2:10 PM: Something is fishy regarding Jumal Rolle, as the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood reports:

We'll try to keep track of this situation as it develops.
