    Happy we were able to get him for the practice squad.

    I'm surprised he made it through waivers. Although he can be snatched off the PS at any given time.

    It really depends on how the Vikings structured Johnson's contract.
    If he is making the practice squad minimum, he will likely end up with another team down the road.
    If the Vikings are honoring the contract Johnson signed as a non-drafted free agent, then Johnson would likely choose to stay, as the Vikings reportedly offered more than other teams from the get go.
    The practice squad contracts are rarely reported to the press, so it is anyone's guess as to how this is set up.

    So him being on the practise roster means what? I kind of understand what the PS is about, but not entirely. Care to enlighten me?

    He gets to practice with the team but can be picked up by another team at any point.
    He also can't play in any games unless they sign him to a real contract and cut somebody else from the 54 man roster.

    53 man roster*

    Ok. That makes sense. So signing him to a contract would keep him around, but as of right now he is pretty much a free agent.

    I also believe (but am not 100% sure) that another team cannot sign him from our PS to their PS.
    They have to sign him from the PS and put him on their active roster.
    For how long, I don't know.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    That is correct, he has to go to the active Roster (which KC did to us with Thigpin).

    The length of time.... I don't know for sure.
