I was curious how former Saints were doing in their bids to make the AAF, and possibly looking for a team to pull for. It looks like Arizona is the winner, with five. Atlanta arguably has the most Saints who contributed on the field, but I'll sooner jump off a building than root for a team from Atlanta.

Arizona Hotshots:
WR Josh Huff
OT Andrew Lauderdale
LB Obum Gwacham
CB Sterling Moore
S Robert Nelson

Atlanta Legends:
WR Seantavius Jones
DE Tavaris Barnes
LB KeShun Freeman
CB Damian Swann

Birmingham Iron:
TE Braedon Bowman
OG Avery Young
CB Bradley Sylve

Memphis Express:
LB Davis Tull
LB Colton Jumper

Orlando Appollos:
OG Andrew Tiller

Salt Lake Stallions:
GM Randy Mueller

San Antonio Commanders:
HC Mike Riley
OL Brian Folkerts
LB Jayrone Elliott

San Diego Fleet:
LB Travis Feeney

What happened to Khiry Robinson? I could’ve sworn he tweeted something a few weeks ago about being on a AAF team roster.

On a side note, it’d be cool if Baton Rouge got a team. I’d happily check out some games in person to root for my hometown.

I'd like to try and get into this, but have no reason to choose any of these teams.
I can relate. When the USFL started, we didn't initially have a team. Then we did, for one season. Go Breaker Blue! It lives on in a YT channel that has nearly all the games ever played. Course, that league competed directly with the NFL; arguably it was the reason unrestricted free agency came into being at all. Here's a thriller between the Breakers and the Chicago Blitz...

Reading the tea leaves (the announced roster and his Twitter feed) suggests he didn't make the team. The backs that did, don't blow me away. He posted something today about maybe playing in Mexico or Arena.

I recall the USFL, but even then I didn't really have a team I considered my favorite. It ended in 85' I think, I was only 12. I became a Saints' fan in 87'.

I see the connections for Birmingham, San Diego, and Memphis but not for the rest.
Atlanta Legends- Lots of legendary soul singers hailed from Atlanta such as Gladys Knight and TLC.

Orlando Appollos- I’m lost.

Salt Lake Stallions- Tons of Equestrian centers, and one major center for the sport. Horse riding is major there.

San Antonio Commanders- Maybe something to do with the Alamo?

San Diego Fleet- Major Naval Base in SD
