How many players are on each team?

Each NFL team can have up to fifty-three players on the roster. Of these players, only forty-five can dress and play on game day. Teams get players either through the draft or by signing free-agents to contracts. Free agents are players who don't currently have a contract with an NFL team. Sometimes this is because they weren't drafted out of college and sometimes it's because their current contract expired.

How many NFL teams are there?

There are 32 teams in the NFL, 16 in the National Football Conference (NFC) and 16 in the American Football Conference (AFC). Each of the conferences is broken up into 4 divisions; East, North, South, and West. Each division has four teams. Here is a list of teams and the divisions they are in:
