The NFL Network will be getting into the flag football business.
The American Flag Football League announced Wednesday that its inaugural season-ending tournament this summer will be broadcast on the NFL Network.
The network will televise 11 games from the U.S. Open of Football Tournament John Klingberg Jersey , capped by the championship between the best Pro team and the top amateur team on July 19.
The AFFL is holding a 132-team, single-elimination tournament for its first season. There will be 128 amateur teams and four pro teams led by Michael Vick; Chad Johnson; former NBA players Nate Robinson and Carlos Boozer; and former NFL player Justin Forsett and Olympic champion Michael Johnson.
The Christian Hackenberg era has come to an end for the Jets, after zero games played.
Hackenberg has been traded to the Raiders for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.
The Jets took Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft Customized New York Giants Jerseys , so to settle for a seventh-round pick for him now is a major disappointment. But realistically, it was never going to work for Hackenberg with the Jets: He looked bad in preseason action and the practices that were open to the public, and with Sam Darnold now in town Robert Griffin III Jersey , there was zero chance of Hackenberg ever emerging as the Jets’ starter.
Can he do anything in Oakland? Raiders coach Jon Gruden was a fan of Hackenberg’s coming out of Penn State, saying before the 2016 draft that Hackenberg should be a first-round pick. So Gruden may think Hackenberg has a chance.
