Add to this that each AAF team has NFL affiliate teams, much like NBA G/D-League does. It's great for the sport and keeps veterans active for longer. I'm predicting that we will see more feel good comeback stories in the NFL due to the AAF's impact.

 

Kurt Warner should've just kept working as a bag boy, right?

Every story has an outlier.  Warner is no different.  He is the extreme exception to the rule.  It happens on the rare occasion.

A quick Google search didn't yield any results. 

With eight AAF teams and eight NFL divisions, it makes sense to designate a team as an affiliate for each division.

I asked this on another thread, but I've read about some of the affiliates for other teams, but who is the Colts' affiliate?

I got this from Wikipedia, so take it for what it is worth, but the Bengals, Colts, Saints, and Titans of the NFL and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL are affiliated with the Memphis Express.

Geographically those all make sense. Memphis is who I thought I'd root for, but San Antonio looked good defensively. It'll be interesting to see if that holds up.

Each NFL team is affiliated with one of the AAF teams (http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25900439/everything-need-know-first-alliance-american-football-season). That article also explains how colleges are affiliated with each of the teams as well. This article confirms the Colts are affiliated with the Memphis team (https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2019/02/10/saints-aaf-memphis-express-davis-tull-damian-swann/). Cathedral and UIndy grad Reece Horn is playing for Memphis and caught 2 passes for 28 yards last weekend. If you look at the Memphis roster (https://aaf.com/memphis-express/roster) there are a couple names I believe have spent at least some time with the Colts.
