I guess you are the only one that wanted to know. This thread dropped of the front page faster than Claythan changes his opinion.

Well...it's good information, but doesn't exactly spur a bunch of discussion or anything. :shrug:

Now that the NFL Europe exemption is gone, I don't see the point of 2 cutdowns. We have to cut 5 scrubs by next tuesday. They will probably be some camp fodder that we never heard of. Why bother? Either make the preseason max 75, or just leave them all on the roster until final cut down. It just seems dumb to me. But, so does having a 53 man roster, but only be able to dress 45 for game day.

I had the same question. This thread's probably gonna drop again, but does anyone know the logic as to why the NFL allows 53 on the roster but limits dressed - for - game players to 45 ?

If you don't know the NFL's reason, does anyone have their own idea as to why ?
