It’s a pretty nice concept. It’s widely thought that the worst pro team would wax the best college team, and at the next level, some guys who could make get the short end of the stick because of roster composition, injuries, etc.One thing about AAF is all the players get paid 75k then get incentives by how well the team and their side of the ball plays.
I have to figure Kaep got payed a huge settlement from the NFL to not disclose it. 75k was never going to be worth it for him and asking for 20 million probably was just a nice way of saying no.
The AAF isn't really designed for guys that got paid in the NFL. It more about the hungry players who want to make it back to that level. The middle level between college and NFL. Like Denard Robinson and Jalen Marshall are perfect for this league.
This will really help both the AAF and NFL quite a bit. I would hope the Browns are utilizing some tracking data, game data, and pretty much every other kind of data to comb the league.
How is this going to work? Do you draft these guys or are they FAs? Can you draft a slew of 6th round picks, say, and send them there? Really interesting to me.
I haven’t seen the product but I have a good feeling about this. You can think of a billion reasons why a player might not work out well at the age of 20-22, and this is a great outlet. There should be pretty good depth. Just imagine guys drafted in the top 3 rounds who make some money but then fizzle quickly because of the fame & fortune. This gives them a pretty good outlet to mature and rededicate themselves.
Very cool concept. If anyone has more info on the system between the NFL and AAF, please share.
