People find practice squad eligibility confusing, so briefly, here is the rule:
A player is eligible for the practice squad as long as
a) He has not dressed (been on the 45 man roster) for 9 or more games during any prior single season; and
b) He has only spent time on a practice squad in two or fewer seasons in his past.
Remember, a player like Willie Reid was on our practice squad in 2008. He had been on the Steelers 53-man roster for the prior two seasons.
Of the players released by the Eagles yesterday, the only guys who are NOT practice squad-eligible are Lorenzo Booker, Tank Daniels, Matt Wilhelm, Kyle Eckel, Matt Schobel and Dan Klecko.
