Former NFL RB Trent Richardson rushes for two TDs in AAF debut

Quarterback Garrett Gilbert went 15 of 25 passing for 227 yards and three total touchdowns (2 passing, 1 receiving) to help lead the Apollos to a dominant 40-6 win over the Atlanta Legends at Spectrum Stadium on the first night of the Alliance of American Football league. It was founded by film and television producer Charlie Ebersol and former National Football League front-office executive Bill Polian.

If you're involved with the AAF, you're extremely happy with these numbers. Twitter was happy to take aim at the former second-round National Football League draft pick as he floundered in the AAF.

Former Patriots listed on AAF rosters include wide receivers Devin Lucien and Brian Tyms.

The 23-year-old finished the first half with just 20 passing yards and the interception. "That's what we want, and hopefully they come back". Patriots fans might recall that he has a history of influencing rule changes; after Bill Belichick's defense manhandled the Indianapolis Colts' offense in 2004, Polian - then the Colts' president - prodded the National Football League until it restricted what defenders could do to receivers downfield. The only thing that will be consistent is the locations of these new teams. The league has great talent on all the teams, which are the Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, and the San Diego Fleet. With eight new teams and roster spots to fill, Utah fans will see some familiar faces. After bouncing around practice squads, he will look to find new light with the Stallions.

Although there are several significant differences between the AAF and the National Football League, the game as a whole shouldn't be too far off what you're used to seeing on Sundays. Sunday was an opportunity for him to do that after a few frustrating years in the NFL. Asiata ranks third all-time at the U with 24 career rushing touchdowns.

The team plays their home opener at Rice-Eccles Stadium on February 23, but the Stallions will play their first game ever on February 10 when they travel to play the Arizona Hotshots. "Secondly, fans have pointed out that kickoffs are the more boring plays in football, so we made a decision to take that out and keep the players on the field".
