Quincy Wilson was probably headed that way till Mike Mitchell showed up, IMO.

 

D'Joun Smith, we all remember him, he felt wronged to be drafted later than he thought, just like Dwayne Allen, but unlike Dwayne, did not do enough to improve to show the coaches much.

Do AAF guys make more than guys on NFL Practice Squads?  Wondering if some that have been lifer PS guys would jump for just getting some exposure?  I know GM's are always looking at other teams' PS but playing (even in the AAF) would be a better barometer (maybe?) of a player's ability?  Just wondering...

No, they make far less then even an NFL practice squad.

All AAF players are on three-year, $250,000 non-guaranteed contracts, and their first year’s salary starts at $70,000.  

 

For the 2018 season, practice squad players can make no less than $7,600 per week, which equates to $129,200 for the season. There is no limit to how much a team can pay a player on the practice squad and practice squad contracts count against the salary cap.

Sounds like a pretty good gig to me. I picked the wrong career path!

AAF players get a 3 year contract for $250k total.  NFL practice squad players make $7,600 per week. (about $129,200 per season, if they last all year)

 

Sorry, just  saw it was answered above.

I thought McKay looked really good Week 1. I read that he and other WRs on San Antonio are drawing interest from NFL teams.

I thought the same.  

I do like his size.

I think D'Joun's biggest problem in the NFL was his knee (he was IR'ed his first two seasons).  And maybe his attitude: https://www.stampedeblue.com/2016/9/2/12777388/report-colts-waived-d-joun-smith-due-to-lack-of-professionalism

 

I don't think he ever got fully healthy, and don't think he really had a shot at living up to his potential.

 

For what it's worth, he was waived by the Orlando Apollos last night.
