NFL: San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Alliance of American Football (AAF) league kicks off tonight, and as Pro Football Talk cites, 81% of the players in the league have held a contract with an NFL team at some point. The league has eight teams: Arizona, Salt Lake, San Antonio, San Diego, Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, and Orlando.
