    ESPN mentioned it briefly the other day. Something about Bill Polian as the commissioner or league official. The league wants to one work with the NFL in some capacity.

    Just came across this

    Arizona Hotshots
    For college fans though, the big players are former West Coast standouts: ex-Oregon receiver Josh Huff and 2012 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year Will Sutton of Arizona State. And then there’s quarterback Trevor Knight, best remembered for his memorable breakout performance in Oklahoma’s win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Former uber-recruit Trenton Thompson of Georgia is also on the roster.

    ATLANTA LEGENDS
    Remember the first time Georgia would have had a national title within reach if it could have just beaten Alabama? So does Aaron Murray, who is one of Atlanta’s three quarterbacks. He’ll be joined by Tennessee’s Matt Simms, who has not started a game since 2011. Michigan legend Denard Robinson and Iowa’s Akrum Wadley make up the Legends’ top rushing threats. Also in the fold is Korean-American kicking great Younghoe Koo, who starred at Georgia Southern and briefly played for the Chargers in 2017.

    Also, Michael Vick is the offensive coordinator. Will Michael Vick lead Aaron Murray to a championship? This is a real question about a football team in Georgia that can be asked in 2019.


    BIRMINGHAM IRON
    Where better to capitalize on whatever name recognition college players have left than Birmingham? The Iron, fittingly, have 16 players from Alabama and Auburn on their roster. The biggest name is former No. 3 overall pick Trent Richardson, who was last on an NFL roster in 2016. Chris Davis (yes, the Kick-Six Chris Davis) is trying to make a comeback after knee surgery. The three quarterbacks on the roster are 2014 Alabama starter Blake Sims, post-Jake Locker Washington starter Keith Price and Division II legend Nick Perez. At wide receiver, Louisiana Tech star Quinton Patton and Auburn return ace Quan Bray jump off the page.

    Also, the Iron’s kicker is Nick Novak, who is inexplicably one of four Maryland alumni on this team.

    Also, the Iron’s kicker is Nick Novak, who is inexplicably one of four Maryland alumni on this team.


    ORLANDO APOLLOS
    It looks like former SMU (via Texas) and Carolina Panthers quarterback Garrett Gilbert will start, but the Florida connections are still strong on this squad apart from Spurrier and Appleby. Former Gator safety Will Hill is on the roster, as is FSU running back Ryan Green, who will battle Akeem Hunt (Purdue) and De'Veon Smith (Michigan), among others, for carries. Every FBS school in Florida has at least one representative on the Apollos’ roster.


    SALT LAKE STALLIONS
    There are plenty of former Utah on the Stallions: Former Vikings running back Matt Asiata joins receivers Kaelin Clay and Dres Anderson, tight end Anthony Denham, O-linemen Jeremiah Poutasi and Salesi Uhatafe, linebackers Gionni Paul and Trevor Riley and defensive linemen Tenny Palepoi and Sealver Siliga. Salt Lake dipped into Nebraska’s alumni list as well, with former Huskers starting running back Terrell Newby, receivers De'Mornay Pierson-El and Kenny Bell and linebacker Josh Banderas also signed on.

    SAN ANTONIO COMMANDERS
    Former Nebraska coach Mike Riley will oversee a large collection of players from Texas. Houston QB Greg Ward Jr. is on this team as a wide receiver, along with former Cougars teammate Kenneth Farrow II. At quarterback, West Texas A&M star Dustin Vaughan is expected to start against San Diego in Week 1. David Cobb (Minnesota) is set to start at running back.

    SAN DIEGO FLEET
    Eight years removed from his last NFL job, Mike Martz teams up with former Indiana and Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike DeBord to direct pro football’s return to San Diego. Martz will not be working with Josh Johnson, who signed with the team only to make the Redskins as a backup and ascend to starting duties late in 2018. Instead, Mike Bercovici (Arizona State), Phillip Nelson (East Carolina) and Alex Ross (Coastal Carolina are all competing for the starting quarterback job. The Fleet also have former San Diego State and Dallas Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar, along with a player from nearby Asuza Pacific, running back Terrell Watson.


    alot of names i haven't heard in years

    For one, games are expected to last two-and-a-half hours, or roughly 30 minutes less than the average NFL game, thanks to a shorter play clock and fewer timeouts. There are no kickoffs, onside kicks or kicking for extra points.

    “We allow teams after touchdowns to go for what we are calling an onside conversion play,” McKay said. “So instead of an onside kick, we will allow a team to take the ball at their own 28-yard line and go fourth-and-12. So it’s a high-risk, high-reward play, but I think more exciting than an onside kick.”

    Every player, regardless of position or profile, receives the same base salary – a three-year contract that starts at $70,000 and then increases to $80,000 and $100,000, with the ability to go to the NFL at the end of every season.

    Roughly 80 per cent of the league’s players have previously signed NFL contracts, so the league believes giving these players the opportunity to perform will result in a decent product.

    In terms of building appeal, roughly half the league’s players were allocated to their teams based on where they played college football, giving each team a strong regional identity.
