Former NFL RB Trent Richardson rushes for two TDs in AAF debut

Former NFL RB Trent Richardson rushes for two TDs in AAF debut

It was founded by film and television producer Charlie Ebersol and former National Football League front-office executive Bill Polian.

This adds even more intrigue to the new league that is ready to hit the ground running, giving football fans a chance to detox a bit by getting in on the AAF.

Kickoffs have been completely taken out of the game and scrimmage will start from each team's own 25-yard line. Which means that onside kicks are not allowed. The play clock will only run 35 seconds, five seconds shorter than the NFL. His first head coaching job was a three-year stint in the mid-1980s with the USFL's Tampa Bay Bandits.

It begins with Spurrier, who won the Heisman Trophy as a player at the University of Florida and later put together his best body of work as a coach at his alma mater, a mere 113 miles up the road in Gainesville.

The team is packed with talent from all over the state of Florida.


Let's look at some of the top plays and score updates through the game, which featured the Hotshots taking a lead during the second half. It's more proof that football, no matter what name it is under, rules the American sports landscape.

As of the AAF's opening weekend, the only former Saints player on the Memphis roster was linebacker Davis Tull, a UT-Chattanooga graduate who was waived in 2016.

Michael Waddell, the President of the Orlando Apollos, has big plans for fan engagement. Hackenberg was waived by Oakland in June, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, completed 7 of 16 passes for 69 yards and two INTs in a preseason game against the Jets and was released the following day.

The Alliance of American Football generated some strong TV ratings Saturday night on CBS.

The AAF has already found multiple broadcast partners for the 2019 season. "Time will tell if they are", Spurrier said. Any remaining players - those from unaffiliated universities and never signed to an National Football League or CFL team - are considered free agents. Sunday will now feature two more games worth of action in the new pro football league, and the nightcap of the festivities will feature the Salt Lake Stallions traveling to face the Arizona Hotshots in Western Conference action.
