A group of former NFL players including Ricky Williams and Terrell Owens are launching their own professional football league.
On Thursday, Williams appeared on ESPN to announce the Freedom Football League, which he says will be “for the fans and by the players”. Some other former players attached to the FFL include Mike Alstott, Jeff Garcia, Simeon Rice, and Dexter Jackson.
There are already two pro football leagues planning to launch soon – the Alliance of American Football in 2019 and a reboot of Vince McMahon’s XFL in 2020. All three leagues plan to play their games in the spring.
Do any of these new leagues have a chance of succeeding? Would you watch more football in the spring, or is college/NFL season enough for you?
