View Full Version : Roster Update #11 Details

11-12-2008, 08:27 PM
Here are the details on the next roster update for Madden 09 which is set to be out on Friday. Included are all the transactions, ratings up/down, and injuries for the 11th update of the season. Not sure there is anything as significant in this as in prior ones with the possible exception of DeAngelo Hall joining the Redskins. Impressively they were able to jump on the latest transactions even including a signing that was announced only hours ago (Jason Babin with the Chiefs).
