Today in AAF Alumni signing to the NFL, Highlighting today is a quarterback that was an internet sensation for his story, and a star wide receiver, plus many more!
First up the Philadelphia Eagles played no games and went straight after Orlando Apollos stud wide receiver Charles Johnson. Johnson will be a great man to have because ever since DeSean Jackson left Philadelphia, they have had a massive hole in the receiver position.
The quarterback will be joining Charles Johnson in Philadelphia is, none other than Luis Perez. This came to a bit of a surprise to me that he was taken over some other AAF QBs remaining. Perez was alright with the Birmingham Iron, but his internet story of learning how to be a quarterback from YouTube is what makes him a wild card. Perez will ultimately be a second or third string behind Carson Wentz, and quite possibly Nate Sudfeld.
Greg Ward Jr will also be joining the clan going to Philadelphia. Ward is a receiver as well, but in college at Houston, he played quarterback. Ward was indeed very good with the San Antonio Commanders and should continue his wrath with the Eagles.
The Dolphins also had a big AAF signing day, first of which was signing running back Kenneth Farrow. Farrow is a great power again, which Miami hasn’t had in years. Farrow is a total menace and makes running over linebackers look easy. His role should be in effect immediately.
Reece Horn is also going to Miami. Horn is an absolute beast of a wide receiver from the Memphis Express. He showed what it meant to play with heart. Horn plays with so much grit and passion and has excellent hands. He should be a great wide receiver two, or three.
Offensive linemen, Jaryd Jones-Smith, Michael Dunn, and nose tackle Joey Mbu will be joining forces in Miami as well. Mbu rips through offensive linemen and makes it look easy; He reminds me of an actual Ndamakong Suh comparison.
Jones-Smith will be most likely play any position on the line because he seems like a very versatile lineman. Micheal Dunn played in the NFL for a bit; he reminds me a lot of Austin Blythe from the Rams.
The AAF continues to make an impact in the NFL, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping soon.
