Alliance of American Football Debuts with Strong Ratings

Getty									Former Alabama running back Trent Richardson is playing for the Birmingham Iron

Well, it's a professional football league founded by producer and director Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, the longtime general manager of the Indianapolis Colts.

The league's action continues Sunday and lasts 10 weeks.

The most recognizable names are safety Will Hill III, quarterback Josh Woodrum and running back Trent Richardson, but there are others that will definitely make Ravens fans say, "Oh yeah, that guy!"

Woodrum became a fan favorite during the 2017 preseason when he gave Ryan Mallett a run for the backup job to Joe Flacco.

The former highly touted National Football League prospect is now on the Memphis Express in the AAF, and he bombed Sunday in a 26-0 loss to the Birmingham Iron.

When the Patriots drafted guard Tre' Jackson in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, we doubt they thought he would find himself on the Orlando Apollos in just a few years.

Despite a close game at halftime, the Hotshots beat the Salt Lake Stallions, 38-22. If the result of the game (a 26-0 win for Birmingham) isn't enough to convey how badly he played, let's take a look at some of Hackenberg's performance (with some NSFW elements, and play-by-play man Ben Holden even apologizes for the quarterback's language).
