|The Alliance of American Football has announced the eight cities in which the league will commence play in fewer than eight months. St. Louis apparently had a chance to be one of those cities.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Ameer Abdullah Jersey , the Dome at America’s Center (f/k/a the Edward Jones Dome) would have been the site of the AAF games played in St. Louis, but the venue has a scheduling conflict on weekends in February 2019. The discussions happened as recently as last weekend, with efforts to find an alternative location for early-season games in St. Louis unsuccessful.
So how close was it to happening? Close enough that Levine Toilolo Jersey , according to Thomas, former Rams receiver Isaac Bruce might have become the head coach of the team. The AAF and Bruce had conversations about the Bruce serving in that capacity.
Bruce would have been an intriguing and unconventional choice, given that the other AAF coaches have coached at the NFL or major-college level. Bruce has no significant coaching experience (he has coached receivers at his former high school in Florida).
The XFL and another possible football league also have contact St. Louis about putting a team there. The AAF could still add an expansion franchise to St. Louis in the future Ryan Grant Jersey , if the operation thrives.
Free agent wide receiver Deonte Thompson has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
Thompson joined the Cowboys on Thursday, one day after veteran linebacker Joe Thomas agreed to a two-year deal and was their first acquisition since NFL free agency opened last week.
In six NFL seasons, Thompson has played 53 games for Baltimore Brandin Cooks Jersey , Buffalo and Chicago. The 6-foot receiver has 77 catches for 1,032 yards and four touchdowns, and 82 kickoff returns for a 24.8 yard average.
Thompson was cut after 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown in five games last season with Chicago. He signed a week later with the Bills Zach Laskey Jersey , and had 27 catches for 430 yards and a touchdown in 11 games.
