The official number is 45, but typically each team really has 46 players suited up each game because of the "inactive quarterback" rule. Typically the number 3 quarterback is listed as one of the 8 inactive players each week, but is suited up, and is allowed to come into the game under special rules.

Current Number of Players on NFL Roster32 teams x 53-man roster = 1,696 players When its not regular/post season, teams are allowed to have 80 men...Not all teams carry the maximum. 80 x 32 = 2,560 players during the off-season/pre-season.
