NFL teams are allowed to officially sign players to their practice squads starting at 10 a.m. PT. This is following the 9 a.m. PT deadline to claim a player off of waivers.

A maximum of four players can have two years of NFL experience. A player is credited with a year of experience after spending six games on the active roster. No player can spend more than three seasons on NFL practice squads.

Players on a practice squad can be claimed by any NFL team but must be placed on that team's active 53-man roster. The San Francisco 49ers spent Friday and Saturday trimming their roster down to the 53-man limit.
