Skip Sauer from The Sports Economist, reports that there is a new football league that will sprout up with the best of college football’s undrafted players. It will be called the All American Football League (AAFL), and will contain 8 teams and a 14 game schedule.
Players and coaches will be employed by the league, not the teams. This means that salaries will be under strict control. Players will earn about $100,000 a season, as much as triple what players in the Arena Football League make. This fact may allow the AAFL to become a viable alternative to Arena Football and the Canadian Football League. The league could allow potential NFL players a league to practice their skills before taking it to the next level. Graduation from college is a prerequisite of playing in the league.
Not a bad place for your football clients who cannot make it into the NFL straight out of college to start their careers.
