The AAF folded before the season came to an end. However, it was around long enough for players to ball out. Here are 3 the Houston Texans should look at.
When the AAF kicked off there was an immense amount of excitement around the league and the players. Opening weekend drew millions and millions of viewers and the product did not disappoint. It wasn’t the NFL but it was never supposed to be.
The dream for the AAF was for it to be a developmental league for the NFL. A place for borderline players to come, get paid, and refine their skills then go infiltrate the NFL ranks. At first, this seemed like it was going to be accomplished as countless players stood out.
However, the rumblings of money problems began to circulate. One of the league’s chief investors was concerned about the success for the league and dangled his investment over the league. Then, earlier this week, he had enough and pulled the plug on the league only eight games into its inaugural season, before it could even finish.
Even still, those eight games were enough for some player to ball out and prove that they deserve another shot at playing in the NFL. In fact, two guys have already signed. Keith Reaser, a cornerback for the Orlando Apollos, signed a deal with the Chiefs and Rashad Ross, a wide receiver for the Arizona Hotshots, signed with the Panthers.
This trend will likely continue in the coming days and the Houston Texans have some spots on the roster that they should look to fill with AAF vets. So, let’s take a look at five players the Houston Texans should take a flier on to fill out the roster.
