Memphis Express Roster (AAF Football)

Some familiar names will be filling the AAF team

The city of Memphis, Tenn., will add to its football legacy as the Express embark as one of the Alliance of American Football's (AAF) inaugural franchises. The home of the Memphis Tigers since 1912, the city along the Mississippi River has also hosted several professional teams through the years, the most notable being the NFL's Tennessee Oilers (1997) before they moved to Nashville and became the Titans.

 

Memphis has also been home to the Southmen (World Football League, 1974-75), the Showboats (USFL, 1984-86), the Mad Dogs (during the CFL's brief American expansion in the mid-90s), the Maniax (XFL, 2001), and the Xplorers (AF2, 2001-06).

 

Now it's the Express' turn, who like those other teams, will also call Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium home. The Memphis Express are led by Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Singletary and feature a host of players on the roster (see below) with ties to the state (including those who played at Memphis, Tennessee or Vanderbilt) or the area (Ole Miss, LSU, Mississippi State). Among those is quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who played for LSU in college before moving on to the Titans in the NFL. He is battling former Penn State signal-caller and fellow NFL draft pick Christian Hackenberg for the starting job.
