Chiefs become first NFL team to sign former AAF player

first_imgHe signed with the Chiefs later that season and was a member of the practice squad before being called up for one game. The team waived him before the 2018 year. Reaser has 34 tackles, seven passes defended and two forced fumbles at the NFL level.Reaser shone in the AAF, leading the 7-1 Apollos with three interceptions. That didn’t take long.Just a couple of hours after the AAF gave its players permission to sign with NFL teams, the Chiefs reportedly reached a deal with cornerback Keith Reaser of the Orlando Apollos, according to ESPN. According to the report, the deal includes $100,000 up front plus a $50,000 signing bonus. There is also a $25,000 workout bonus and a $25,000 bump if Reaser makes the roster.The AAF suspended operations Tuesday in a stunning move that left some players stranded in cities far from home, stuck with huge hotel bills, medical costs and with uncertain futures. Related News The NFL had sent a memo Wednesday to all 32 teams discouraging them from signing or even contacting AAF players, given the uncertain legal status of the situation.But the AAF’s clearance for players to sign may open a small floodgate of movement of players from the eight AAF teams. Many will be like Reaser, players who have had a brief fling with the NFL and were using the AAF to earn a second chance. The 27-year-old defensive back, originally chosen by the 49ers in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, played 29 games with San Francisco before being released in 2017.

Women’s World Cup 2019: Argentina makes history with stunning Scotland comeback

first_imgArgentina produced the greatest comeback in Women’s World Cup history to keep its last-16 qualification hopes alive.Scotland led 3-0 with 16 minutes to play in Paris on Wednesday with goals from Kim Little, Jennifer Beattie and Erin Cuthbert having seemingly secured victory for Shelley Kerr’s team. Alexander saved Bonsegundo’s initial spotkick — and the rebound — but she was deemed to have moved off her line so the penalty was retaken, with the second effort smashed home.3 – Argentina have become the first ever side to come from three goals down to avoid defeat in a Women’s World Cup match. Drama. #FIFAWWC #ARG #SCOARG pic.twitter.com/wjF9EiPRQC— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 19, 2019No team has ever before come from three goals down to avoid defeat in a Women’s World Cup match.But Argentina still face an anxious wait to discover whether it will be in the last 16 as its progression depends on results in Thursday’s action in Groups E and F. But Scotland collapsed in incredible circumstances, a 3-3 draw meaning it finished bottom of Group D and is out of the World Cup.Milagros Menendez got one back for Argentina before it cut the deficit to a single goal when Flor Bonsegundo’s strike rebounded off the woodwork and in off Lee Alexander.The Scotland goalkeeper would be even more unfortunate in added time as she was beaten for a third time, Argentina having been awarded a penalty when Sophie Howard was adjudged to have fouled Aldana Cometti following a VAR check.last_img read more
