Thanks bheid408 and imladris12 for clarifying. Jeff4noles - the answer to your question is the same as to mine - 25 players.
BUT ...I did not realize that we had a salary cap of any kind - $85 million ? Yikes. um, okay. Though that makes it a little trickier and I usually don't join progs with caps, but I reckon I did in this case so as Patrick Henry put it, "let's make the most it."
