My bet is that at least one will fall by the wayside, or they may even merge. Charlie Ebersol is the man behind the AAF, and his father Dick was the guy at NBC who got behind the original XFL with Vince McMahon.

AAF locations: Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Orlando, Tempe, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego

XFL 2020 locations: Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Washington

Interesting that the two leagues are not setting up in the same location. The XFL is mostly going for current NFL locations including big cities like LA and New York, which incidentally are the only 2 locations they are coming back to after the 2001 attempt. 3 of the old XFL locations (Orlando, Birmingham and Memphis) are being used by the AAF.

I wonder if the AAF (or even XFL) would ever consider setting up some teams in Europe, or if we could get the NFLE back at some point.

It is an interesting thought. And of course for all the credit the NFL gets in terms of forward thinking for bringing regular season games to London or Mexico, Vince McMahon was way ahead of them. Summerslam 1992 was held at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 spectators.

Adam Schefter reporting that the Redskins don't expect Alex Smith to play at all in the 2019 season.

Bad news, makes you wonder if he'll be back in 2020.

well his $15m 2019 salary is fully guaranteed so if he wants to rehab and try to play on in 2020 he would be 36 with career earnings of over $160m,if he doesn't want to risk further injury and walk away healthy then he is set for life.

tough for the Redskins,do they now have to draft a QB or hope that the guys who got injured last year when forced onto play can stay healthy and give them hope for 2019?

So it sounds like the Raiders are looking to stay in the Bay Area for 2019. Roger Goodell seemed to rule out San Diego in his press conference the other day. Still looks like they might not stay in Oakland this year though even if they keep the name. From what Ian Rapoport said sharing with the 49ers for a season is back on the table. The Giants' baseball stadium is another option but to do that the 49ers would need to consent too because that's their market. So if the 49ers are OK with sharing their stadium you'd probably prefer that as at least it's a football stadium (and a good one). AT&T Park is a lovely place but the layout for baseball isn't good for football, plus you've got the dirt for the first month (though Raiders are used to that). On the plus side, the baseball stadium is actually in San Francisco, and therefore much closer to Oakland than the 49ers' stadium is.

Julius Peppers has announced his retirement. 17 seasons, 9 Pro Bowls, 3 times All Pro first team, named to the All-Decade team for the 2000s. Not bad

Yeah, that’s a pretty decent resumé! Incredibly consistent throughout his career, definite first ballot HoF’er for me.
