The AAF started off on a good note back in February but it could soon end up going down.
AAF Chairman Tom Dundon told USA Today Sports that the league is in danger of folding unless they can get some help from the NFLPA.
“If the players union is not going to give us young players, we can’t be a development league,” Dundon said. “We are looking at our options, one of which is discontinuing the league.”
Dundon, who also owns the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, made a $250 million investment last month after the league was in danger of not making payroll.
The NFLPA did not respond to Dundon’s comment, but according to the report, the NFLPA is concerned with allowing players to play in the AAF due to potential injury risk and violations of the CBA.
As of now, unsigned NFL players are free to join the AAF. Former NFL QB Johnny Manziel was claimed by the Memphis Express last week.
Dundon went on to say that he expects to make a decision about the league’s future over the next two days.
