Are there minimum roster requirements in the NFL?

I was just wondering if there were minimal roster requirements in the nfl.

This is because in Madden, it says you ahve to have 5 guards or 4 safeties before you can play a game.

Is this the same in the NFL. Must all team carriy X amount of guards X amount of running backs.


I get really annoyed signing players that i'll never use instead of players i want to.

No there aren't. Eah team can have 53 on roster, but can only dress 45 for the actual game. All 45 of these could be kickers if the owner was insane (why hasn't Dan Snyder tried this?), but you'd lose

wow kool.

madden should really remove the roster requirements then. I have guys who can play multiple positions but have to sign randoms just to fulfill the requirements.

Re: Are there minimum roster requirements in the NFL?

You do have to designate your 3rd QB in the NFL. That player is not counted against the 45 man game day roster but he can only come in if the starter and the backup get hurt. The starter and the backup is not allowed to return to action if the 3rd starter plays a snap.

>>>Something like that

IIRC the 3rd QB can come in any time, but if he does before the 4th quarter then the other 2 can't come back.

Re: Are there minimum roster requirements in the NFL?

You know what always puzzled me about this - why are NFL teams not trying to find guys like the Groza award winner from FSU who can kick and punt, or find some athlete on their team who can handle one of the two to save a roster spot on game day for a more useful player???

Mike Ditka once had to start "Sweetness" at QB due to injury and evidently he was the best punter you have never heard of, well you have heard of him put Ditka wouldn't let him punt for fear of a riot if he got hurt punting! Some of Walter Payton's former teammates have said they never had a punter who could out punt him while he was on the team.

Yea, I know that is kinda randomn but interesting, no?

I think the reason Madden has these requirements is because of the depth chart limitations (players are limited to certain positions, an LT can't be in at CB).

Hopefully with the success of head coach we get some real nfl roster (45 gameday roster) and some other cool things like variable ratings based on the coach.

Yeah, Graham Gano is really what NFL scouts should look for, plus he isn't that bad of a runner either (broke off like over 20 yards against BC on a 4th and over 10)

But, I don't understand Madden's thinking, thats why i like NCAA where sometimes you just dont have a Fullback or 3rd Tackle or even a 2nd!
