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.

Mekale McKay WR - Preseason 2016 

 

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

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 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.

    • In all seriousness though, it would be great if you guys could settle your differences, end this beef and move forward.......you’re both awesome contributors to this forum in your own ways and add some great X’s and O’s and insight that dummies like myself learn a lot from.  This is an open place to express our opinions, and you both know the saying, lol!!!   Why can’t we be friends????    
    • I see the safety depth as really good among those likely to make the roster: Willis, Odum, and Farley.  But after that, it’s a big step down: Milligan and Johnson, and previously Kindred.  I wonder if Tell could be kept on the roster and be given back-up Safety duties.  He probably needs more work before he’s ready to contribute too much at CB...
    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
