AAF refusing to allow its players to sign with CFL teams
The Alliance of American Football has suspended operations, but CFL clubs won’t be able to sign players who are under contract with AAF teams until those contracts are officially voided.
The CFL released a statement regarding the situation Friday afternoon.
“The Canadian Football League continues to have dialogue with the AAF. Until the player contracts are voided, CFL clubs will not be allowed to sign players who have a current contract with the AAF,” the CFL said in a statement.
AAF chairman Thomas Dundon suspended operations earlier this month with two weeks still left in their inaugural season of play.
Dundon is also the majority owner and chief executive officer of the Carolina Hurricanes.
