With 28,000 college football players and 1,700 NFL jobs open, there are plenty of talented induvial to fill those spots.
"We want to put high-quality, top-flight football on the field in the offseason for the first time in well over a quarter of a century", Ebersol said.

Namely, there will be no kickoffs. Thus, teams will begin their possession at their 25-yard line.

The first round of AAF teams and home markets will be announced next month. The AP said warm-weather locations are most likely, given the February-April schedule. There is just no way to get fans invested in new players, on new teams, in a new league that produces an inferior product. While the AAF has not disclosed how much capital it has raised in the early going, among those who are funding the effort include Barstool Sports majority owner The Chernin Group, Peter Thiel's Founders Fund (Facebook, Lyft, Space-X) and the tech fund Slow Ventures, which boasts an investment portfolio that includes the likes of Pinterest, Slack and Blue Bottle Coffee. But whether or not the on-field product catches on, the rule changes are nearly likely to be watched very closely by the behemoth NFL. Considering the National Football League has been trying to limit certain elements of contact during play, especially on kickoffs, the new approach to eliminating kickoffs altogether might find its way into a discussion in a board room on Park Avenue quite soon.
The Alliance is the creation of Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian, one of the most respected and accomplished executives in NFL history, and Charlie Ebersol, a longtime TV and film producer.
