Saints Sign 10 Players To Practice Squad
The New Orleans Saints have announced ten signings to their practice squad, agreeing to deals with 9 players from their preseason roster, and 1 player who was cut by the Buffalo Bills.
Guard Antoine McClain was wavied by the Bills on Saturday, but has joined the Saints practice squad.
McClain signed an undrafted rookie free agent deal with Baltimore in 2012. At 6'5, 326 pounds, he has spent time with Baltimore, Oakland, and most recently the Buffalo.
Joining McClain on the practice squad are 9 members of the Saints training camp/preseason roster. WR Brandon Coleman (pictured), ILB Todd Davis, CB Terrence Frederick, TE Nic Jacobs, WR Seantavius Jones, OT Tavon Rooks, NT Lawrence Virgil, CB Trevin Wade and S Pierre Warren all agreed to terms with New Orleans.
NFL practice squad members earn a minimum of $6300 per week, over the course of a 17 game season. They are eligible to be signed away by any other NFL team's 53 man active roster. While the minimum salary for a practice squader is $6300, there is no maximum salary. Practice squad contracts do not count against a team's salary cap.
