AAF Former Steelers Shine on AAF Opening Weekend Published 1 week ago on February 11, 2019 By Donnie Druin 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment EmailWith the 2018-2019 NFL season now in the rear-view mirror, Steelers fans are still able to wave their Terrible Towels thanks to former Steelers playing in the Alliance of American Football’s inaugural weekend. The Steelers serve as an affiliate for the AAF’s Birmingham Irons, meaning any players cut by the Steelers (Or Browns, Patriots, and Bills) would be at first grabs for Birmingham. Seven former Steelers are currently playing for the Iron: Jacob Hagen, Jamar Summers, Johnny Maxey, Josh Frazier, Casey Sayles, Larson Graham and L’Damien Washington. The Irons shut out the Memphis Express 26-0 behind a dominant defensive display from Summers, who tallied a forced fumble, three tackles and two other passes defended aside from the interception he had here: .@aafiron defense with the pick! #MEMvsBHM pic.twitter.com/bK73dUP7kq — The Alliance (@TheAAF) February 10, 2019 Former Steelers made their names known throughout the rest of the AAF, including linebacker Terence Garvin, who recorded eleven tackles along with the AAF’s first ever interception, while also bringing back another errant pass for a touchdown in a 40-6 win for the Orlando Apollos.

Legends receiver Justin Thomas recorded 4 receptions for 35 yards, while cornerback Doran Grant registered two tackles. The AAF has seen successful ratings through its first week of play, showcasing how much Americans truly love the sport of football no matter how it’s presented. With strong showings by many former Steelers this past weekend, opportunities may present itself for players to once again find themselves on NFL rosters after the season concludes. 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment Email Related Topics:AAFfeaturedNFLPittsburgh SteelersTerence Garvin Don't Miss Alan Faneca Left off 2019 Hall of Fame Ballot Donnie Druin Continue Reading You may like Art Rooney II, Antonio Brown to Meet Next Week Mic Drop: Antonio Brown Officially Requests Trade New Betting Odds on Potential Antonio Brown Trade Destinations Vukovcan: Steelers Should Play Hard Ball With Antonio Brown Antonio Brown No-Show at Court, Guilty for Speeding Mic Drop: Steelers Fans Can’t Criticize Browns for Signing Hunt Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
