How Week 1 Rosters Were Assembled

Jason Martinez is the operator of RosterResource.com, an indispensable source for NFL depth charts as well as complete MLB, NBA, and NHL rosters. In advance of the season’s kickoff for 2017, Jason analyzed how each team’s 53-man roster was assembled for Week 1. You may be surprised to see how many of your team’s players are homegrown versus those arrived via free agency, trades, or waivers.

    You should check your numbers on the Steelers as they acquired via trade both McDonald and Wilcox during the last days of camp.

    The Pats only have one trade listed but they traded for both Cooks and Dorsett. And that’s just from the list of first rounders, who knows if I’m missing more.

    The trade numbers are off. Seahawks have traded for six players, not one.

    Nice summary of the team makeups! Not surprising that the Bears are one of only two teams that have more free agents than homegrown (Buffalo being the other team).
