      Max Redfield got picked by D.C., but he chose to play in Italy instead.

        Signed by the Firenze Guelfi. According to the article Mike Pietropola is also on the team as a "dual" (Italy/U.S.) player.

            I believe that QB Jordan Ta'amu played college ball for Ole Miss IIRC. I watched enough pre-draft tape of AJ Brown and DK McDonald last spring to know that. Or did he do some grad transfer thing to Temple last fall?

            Didn't I hear that former NFL WR/Royal Idiot Chad Johnson was going to try out to be a kicker?

            When does this new league get under way? I wonder if it works out. There is a lot of history to suggest that it will not. But who knows.
