NFL Rosters By Position

Nowadays, Pro Football Rosters stand at 53 players per game with 47 dressing and the other 6 not eligible to play. So even though these players are on the roster their stats will not reflect any game statistics. In the first pro football season in 1920 rosters listed about 20 players because most of them played on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Rosters started expanding, to our current limit of 53, when unlimited substitution became allowed and players were no longer required to play both ways. Browse rosters for every team, year and game from 1920 to the present.
