The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have confirmed the members of their 10-man practice squad.
For the first time, the NFL will allow 10 players on a practice squad rather the usual eight.
Here is the complete Bucs practice squad:
Kafka, Patton, Demps, Magee, Brate and Masifilo were all with the Bucs during the 2014 preseason.
Dixon was with the New York Jets after being a sixth round draft pick in 2014. Fields spent the preseason with the Oakland Raiders while McFadden was with the Atlanta Falcons.
Brooks entered the league in 2012 and spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals and played 2013 in the CFL. He was with the New Orleans Saints for the 2014 preseason.
The minimum salary for a practice squad player is $6,300 a week. However, teams can pay them more to make sure they remain with the team. A player on a practice squad can be signed at any time by another team but must be put on the 53-man roster. A player cannot simply switch from one team’s practice squad to another.
In another roster move, the Bucs claimed guard Garrett Gilkey from the Cleveland Browns and waived undrafted rookie center Josh Allen to make room for him on the 53-man roster.
