Which AAF players signed with NFL teams in 2019? We’re tracking every move and which ones might pay dividends this season.

The AAF provided players a chance to put some things on tape after some had perhaps had their last shot in the NFL. Though the league itself is all but completely sunk, its purpose was fulfilled as far as the NFL is concerned.

More than 30 players have signed NFL contracts after putting some things on tape in the AAF, and will get a chance to compete in training camp this year when the dream might have been otherwise dead.

Though the league was unstable financially, it accomplished what many of these players wanted it to — it provided AAF players with a chance to play in the NFL again.

Which players put enough on tape to get a shot with an NFL team again this offseason? Which players have a really good shot to make it this time around?

These players should still be considered long shots, make no mistake about it. They found their way to the AAF for good reason. These guys weren’t even reserve/future contract players, but this is yet another way the NFL can unearth a gem to help win games, and these signings — like all roster moves — can make a difference in the right situation.

We’re tracking every move by position.
