I like this. You could do a defensive player list too. I think San Antonio safety Derron Smith signed with The Vikings. Hopefully these guys get onto NFL rosters come September but it's possible that some don't and end up as targets for the XFL.

I saw that. I mixed him up with D’Vante Busby, who signed with Denver

These AAF players signing with the NFL is good for those players because they get a measure of stability after the off the field mess that has been out there

Apparently since there are lawsuits still ongoing against the league, they aren't allowed to sign elsewhere. They are allowed to sign with NFL teams because that was in their contracts to begin with.
