NFL To Expand Offseason Rosters To 90 On Tuesday

The NFL announced earlier Monday that rosters will be eligible to expand to up to 90 players on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. EST, news that has an impact on each of its 32 franchises.

So, what's it mean for Dallas?

Find out after the jump.

The biggest benefit for teams from the expansion is the creation of depth. The extra 10 roster spots allows teams to pad areas where they may be weak or laced with veterans who will need additional rest during training camp.

It also gives teams the opportunity to take chances on guys who have intriguing upside that they may not have otherwise considered.

When you think of all of the successful undrafted players in the NFL, it's exciting to know that up to 320 additional players will have a shot to earn their way in the NFL. That is good news for everyone.
