The AAF championship is April  27th. I don't see the NFL throwing any guaranteed money because they will be done in plenty of time to go to camp.

That is true.  But lets say after 6 weeks you know you want player X.  You know two other teams are looking at him as well.  Rather than wait and risk them offering him something first you spend 50k to get him now.

I am not thinking this is going to happen to dozens of players, but a handful of players could have such a breakout season that people scratch their heads and say, why is he in the AAF and not the NFL. 

I doubt their is a wide receiver of Randy Moss caliber in the AAF, but their might be one of the Wes Welker/Julian Edelman level.

I'm going to try and catch some of the games this weekend. I hope I like it, and am not too disappointed with the play. I think I'd be more excited about this if I had a local team. I think the closest team to Boston is in Memphis? Maybe I'll be an Orlando fan. I like Steve Spurrier.  I hate to say it, and I'm embarrassed to, but I think my AAF team ofchoice may come down to what team's uniforms I like best. I have no idea. But saying go Iron, or yay hotshots doesn't quite feel right.

That's the weekend of the NFL Draft.  Teams could then sign AAF players along with the UDFAs.

AAF players are under 3 year contracts. I'm not sure what the contracts actually say but it may not allow for them to move to another league without some sort of buyout. The heads that put this league together are very NFL experienced so I can't see them screwing themselves from the get go. .

They are branding themselves as a development league.  If the do anything to inhibit players going to the NFL they will have trouble attracting players.  These guys primary goal is to get noticed by an NFL team.

They have three year contracts, but if they get an offer from an NFL team, they are allowed to break the contract.

Yes ... I read that after I made that post. Their goal is to work with the NFL so it makes sense.

Players can leave the league, which is set to kick off Feb. 9, to go to the NFL. Polian said it's currently unclear whether a player's rights will revert back to the AAF after a three-year period expires or if the clock stops ticking on a team's three-year rights when a player gets "called up" to the big time.

Salaries will be in line with AAF competitor the XFL, which has said it will pay players an average of $75,000 per season. That league launches in 2020.

Polian said a contract will include state-of-the-industry health insurance
