An Ex-Steeler, An Ex-Jet, and a QB with a Tryout for the Jets All Likely UFL QB’s


The UFL begins its season on CBS Sports Network Wednesday, September 19th, and the formation of their rosters should accelerate once the NFL is done with its cuts.

As of right now, former Oregon Ducks and Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dennis Dixon is considering becoming the Sacramento Mountain Lions’ quarterback. He had tryouts with the Broncos and Ravens this year.

Former UAlbany Great Dane Dan Di Lella – a QB that the Jets gave a tryout to – could be joining the Omaha Nighthawks.

Former Tulsa and New York Jets QB G.J. Kinne has mentioned the money (I believe the QB’s make more than the other players) and how all the UFL’s games are on national TV with CBS Sports Network as reasons why will likely sign with the Omaha Nighthawks if no NFL teams reach out to him before week 1.

    Developing talent for the NFL is one of the best uses of the UFL. Once again, the NFL camps have had quite a few UFL players in their midst, including a number who have already transitioned to the NFL from prior years. The football is good quality (a real pro game, not like college) and it yields plenty of tape for NFL teams to look through to find those mid-season, game-ready replacements they’ll need. I stumbled across the UFL when the league began and I’m glad to watch their games. With the new management structure in place, I hope they can get rid of the business mistakes which have plagued the league because I still think it is one of the best football options out there, especially for areas with no NFL presence.

    The UFL is semi-pro with barely any national exposure, nobody cares about it….these guys should spend their year honing their skills in professional complexes, not in some 4 team nobody league…and I live in LV that has a UFL team albeit with pathetic following and attendence(haven’t seen anything about them having a UFL team this year? Advertising? Hello?)
