With final cuts now complete, NFL teams will begin signing players to fill out their 10-player practice squad. For a little background on NFL practice squads, here's a quick rundown about eligibility rules from NOLA.com...

Generally, players are allowed up to three seasons on the practice squad (six games counts as one season) as long as they have not accrued one season of free agency credit (six games on the active roster, IR or PUP list).

Up to two players with no more than three accrued seasons can be given an exception. (This is how players like Vaccaro and Armstead are technically eligible).

Finally, players who spent fewer than nine games on the 46-man roster during each of their accrued seasons don't have to use an exception.

We are tracking the Saints practice squad signings live today. Here is who the Saints have signed so far:
