INDIANAPOLIS – Colts rookie minicamp won’t be the only football played in the Circle City this weekend as The Spring League is set to kickoff its season.

For out-of-college football players not quite ready for the NFL, the TSL provides a path.

“We are filling a very critical void,” explains league Founder and CEO Brian Woods, “that middle ground between college and the NFL where players still need time to develop. They need extra repetitions, they need to remain relevant.”

“Indy’s a great host,” adds Woods. “It’s a centralized location, and that’s really important to us. We’re excited to be in Indianapolis, and we’re hoping we can maybe make this a hub going forward.”

And further into the future, there’s a big target on the TSL’s radar.

“It’s no mystery that an official relationship with the National Football League would bode well for us long term,” Woods confirms.<<

Still hanging on to that NFL minor league pipe dream, huh? Well, at least he isn't banking EVERYTHING on that.

And even if the NFL were to change course and say "OK, we'll do it," there would almost certainly be drawbacks in terms of loss of control.
