When the Alliance of American Football starts play in February, it hopes to put players on the field in front of fans who cheered for them in college.
J.K. McKay, head of football operations for the AAF, told PFT that the AAF’s top priority in stocking the rosters for its teams will be to http://www.duckshockeyshop.com/adidas-dennis-rasmussen-jersey keep players who played their college football near the AAF’s eight cities close to home.
You want to keep local kids home when you can, McKay said. It creates fan interest. Our Birmingham team will have Alabama and Auburn, and that will draw some fan interest.
AAF teams will have 75 players on training camp rosters and 50 players on regular season rosters. All eight teams will open a joint training camp at the same location in early January, then break camp and practice in their home cities before the AAF’s inaugural season opens on February 9.
They’ve also made significant alterations to the offense. Norv Turner is in as offensive coordinator and they have added three wide receivers and running back C.J. Anderson to a complement of skill position players that also includes tight end Greg Olsen and running back Christian McCaffrey. Quarterback Cam Newton remains http://www.officialauthenticsredskins.com/Deangelo-Hall-Jersey.html in Dennis Rasmussen Womens Jersey place, although Turner is clear that he hopes to see some differences from him this season.
But the one thing that I think when you look at it that we’re going to work hard to help him is, he has a large number of games where his quarterback rating is as high as anyone’s is, Turner said on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Bill Polian. It’s in the high 90s, low 100s. But in the middle of that, of a 16-game season, he has four or five games where that rating is not very good. And that, obviously, makes your average not as good as you’d like. So what we’re going to try to work hard for is eliminate the peaks and the valleys and try to, on a weekly basis, make it more consistent. And I think that’ll help us, offensively, be more Authentic DeAngelo Hall Jersey consistent and certainly will help him.
