Here is another logo of a team about to begin play in the new Alliance of American Football in the spring of 2019, the San Diego Fleet. The team will be coached by former NFL coach Mike Martz, and their roster includes players with NFL pedigrees like Bishop Sankey, Josh Johnson, Gavin Escobar and Ron Brooks. They also have the rights to linebacker A.J. Tarpley, who retired from the Buffalo Bills at age 23 citing concussion concerns and seems an unlikely candidate to actually play.
