    Scott to Join Eagles?

    A news article by Mike Kay says that the Eagles plan to “sign rookie running back Boston Scott off the New Orleans Saints' practice squad,” citing NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

    Good news. Since he was signed off another teams practice squad I think it means he has to stay on the 53 man roster the rest of the season. If that's the case he will get 3 game checks. Let's hope he makes the active roster and gets some playing time.

    That is correct. He will have a guaranteed roster spot for the rest of the season.

    Although I would have preferred Scott make the Saints roster, I would be happy to see him make the Eagle's roster and play.

    How does it work when they are on the practice squad? What do they get paid? When a player is on the 53 man roster, are their minimums as to position, or is it usually a contract per the man? Would like to know more on pay structure in NFL? AND how are Defensive Ends usually paid, amount and length of contract wise? Thank you.

    Not sure about DE’s, but in 2018, practice squad players make a minimum of $7600/week.

    First year minimum on the 53 man roster is $30,000 per game (I think).

    Yep...$480K annually. Increases pretty swiftly as you stay in the league with 5 year vet getting a minimum of $790K this year or $49,375/game.

    Correct. There is a minimum salary for the practice squad, but there is no maximum salary for the practice squad. When Boston cleared waivers back in September a couple of talk radio people in New Orleans said the Saints convinced him to stay on their practice squad by paying him at or close to his full rookie salary. Apparently Boston had other practice squad offers. The Saints just had to stay under the salary cap, which includes practice squad salaries.

    What I don't know is how the latest CBA treats active roster players vs. practice squad players when it comes to retirement benefits. Being on that active roster for just 3 games might have a big financial impact on Boston's life 30 years from now if he can stay in the league another few years.

    The Eagles just got Sproles back, and he's playing his way back into shape. Boston is the same type of back as Sproles. Concerned about how much playing time Boston will get.

    Philly and New Orleans treat former Tech players like crap. I realize it's not a conspiracy, but it sure feels like one.

    I read articles that speculate they picked up Boston for the future. They also stated Sproles is likely to retire in the offseason.

    Paul Turner is our best player! The fans love him!

    Better put him on the practice squad while our receiving corps does...nothing.
