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 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.

    • With 100-plus players, coaches and support staff in a locker room in July and August, I don’t see how the NFL survives the season.  And I hope I’m wrong.   But I AGREE with you that the NBA and MLB are completely different.  But since both have dramatically fewer players and coaches, etc,  I think the NFL has a much more difficult  hurdle to clear.   I think the odds for football have to be much more difficult than those for MLB and the NBA.   Please let me be wrong.  Nothing would make me happier. 
    • It'll be interesting to watch, but IMO, the NBA and MLB are different animals. NBA will be playing in a bubble, and MLB is a lot less contact. Heck, you could actually play baseball with a face mask lol. I could see both fairing pretty well, which may or may not be indicative of what we'll see with the NFL.    All I know is all the players (NFL, MLB, and NBA) should be bubble wrapping themselves given the money they stand to make/loose. I know most of the players are itching to play, so just hope they're disciplined enough to make good choices.
    • The value is pretty incredible. Would anyone really be shocked if Cam started and did well? Nope.   I think Bill Belichick got tired of hearing all the Brady/TB chatter, and said.... "OK guys, watch this" lol.    I'll be hoping that both TB and NE have horrible seasons lol   Strange times.
    • Looks like they are now undergoing a review of the Redskins name.  A change seems likely due to the pressure from Fedex, NFL and public at large. They were the Boston Braves before they came to D.C.  So maybe just call them the Washington Braves or Washington Warriors if “Braves” is still deemed to be too insensitive.  FWIW, the Cleveland Indians are also considering a name change.
