I don't know that I would say a season, but what if they have to be picked up by another team, released, and re-acquired by KC? At least at this juncture, there'd be a transfer of contractual rights to the player to another team at least once.

This would effectively stop anyone from picking up players that are bounced between the active roster and the PS as well, since the player has to clear waivers in that process and is effectively a FA when signed in either direction.

Basically, we're setting the following ways to add players to your roster:
1. Draft a player.
2. The Chiefs sign a free agent that had prior contractual obligations to another team to their active roster.
3. The Chiefs sign an undrafted free agent to their active roster.
Any of the above may first go to the practice squad, then to the active roster, but the other prerequisites must hold.
