    The word infantry comes from the French infantrie and meant those who were too young or inexperienced to make the rank of cavalry.

    NFL Practice squad players are free agents and can be signed to any team's 53-man roster at any time during the season.

    I had always assumed a team could protect their PS player if a team claimed him by placing him on the 53 man roster but that's not the case.

    Technically true, but the team who the player is on the PS with can match any offer and retain them.

    Then why are they called free agents? I need to research this some more.

    Sounds like a restricted free agent.
