Every NFL team has 53 players on the active roster. But only 46 of them are declared active for each game. Falcons coach Dan Quinn thinks that’s a waste.
Quinn wants the NFL to change its eligibility rules to make more players available to play each game.
The Texans are banking on the idea that the Watson they saw in 2017 before his rookie season-ending knee injury is the Watson they will get in 2018 and beyond. That’s why Houston signed the 34-year-old James Develin Womens Jersey Weeden, aka Watson’s boy, to back up the youngster and help him develop in the offense.

Dallas seems happy with Rush as its backup quarterback, so there’s no immediate need to stuff the depth chart with another option behind Prescott. Another factor here is money. With Prescott as a 2016 fourth-round pick and Rush having signed as an undrafted free agent in 2017, the Cowboys are getting maximum returns on virtually minimum investment at the position. They could get away with a cheap QB signing for depth if necessary.
Consider this example. Two players are moving in opposite directions. As they approach each other, they instinctively dip their heads. Then, one stops and the other keeps going. At contact, one player is moving and the other is stationary. The player who was moving initiated the contact, and thus draws the flag.
And so, similar to the manner in which basketball presents the charge-versus-blocking decision for its referees, NFL officials will have to decide whether, when helmets collide, one or both players in a football game will be facing a penalty. If it’s both, the penalties will offset. If it’s one, the other team will gain 15 yards of field position.
Whether it comes to that depends on how the rule is specifically designed and implemented. For now, though, the broad language proposed secretly and adopted quickly by the league sets the stage for this new protection for all players to be used strategically by some coaches who are willing to trade a hit to a player’s head for 15 yards of field position.
