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.
That seems reasonable. I think the spirit of the rule is that, in the long run, we're creating our own drafted team, and this works as a clarification to the existing rules. Let's do a pilot test this year with this rule in place to see if it creates any problems or dilemmas.
