Default Former Broncos in the UFL

The UFL is getting ready to kick off and, being in Florida, the chatter is picking up. Curious to know what type of talent the league is fielding, I decided to go to the website. Just thought it was interesting to see the number of former NFL'ers on the rosters, especially former Broncos. Check em out below:

Florida Tuskers
PJ "ATV" Alexander
Tatum "T-Mobile" Bell
Patrick "Chuckwagon" Chukwurah
Darrell "Shorty Round" Hackney
Andrew Pinnock
Todd "HGH" Sauerbrun

Las Vegas Locomotives
Nate "Jack Nasty" Jackson
David "5-Dollar Footlong" Kircus

NY Sentinels
Simeon Rice
Cecil "The Diesel" Sapp

California Redwoods
Paul Carrington

Simeon Rice, interesting. Guess he can't accept that it's over. Either that or he didn't take care of his money and isn't qualififed to do anything else.

Well it could be worse, the XFL used Vince McMahon and his wraslers to promote itself.

I've always liked the idea of a spring football league, but the only thing about the XFL I liked was the ball.

Well having former NFL coaches in the UFL is really it's only hint of legitimacy right now so it makes sense they would advertise them. Coors Light commercials have also helped with street cred.

It starts in a week or two. And yes, VS is carrying most of the games.

AH, the XFL days....Cheerleaders gave lapdances during the time outs, fighting was allowed...at least a little...it was classless football at its best.

Chukwurah was a decent situational pass rusher ... with the right coaching he might've become a decent backup 3-4 OLB.

You know, i used to be a big tatum bell hater but after watching him play with heart (Unlike 95% of the rest of the team) the last few games of the season, especially San Diego, I have a lot of respect for him now. Too bad he's ended up in the UFL.
