Are you ready for some (more) football? Here’s comes the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL).

The FXFL will feature four teams this season with rosters made up primarily of players who are cut during NFL training camps.

FXFL teams are slated to play six games, with the assumption each team will play each other team twice.

The new league’s season is set to begin on Oct. 8 with franchises in Miami; Boston; Omaha, NE; and Brooklyn, NY.

The team names are the Florida Blacktips, Boston Brawlers, Omaha Mammoths and Brooklyn Bolts.

Blacktips home games will be played at FIU, while the Brawlers will use Harvard Stadium. The Mammoths home field is TD Ameritrade Park and MCU Park is where the Bolts will welcome visitors.

The newest league logo sports five stars. Previous reports have mentioned a team in Texas, but the latest news around the league has only noted the four teams listed above.

Information on FXFL coaches, front offices and players should be coming soon. Players who might end up on an FXFL team this season will learn their fate shortly, as NFL squads have to cut down to the league’s maximum roster size very soon.

Earlier this year, the A11FL announced plans for a six-team league to play in the spring of 2015. Unfortunately, the plans have been scrapped and the A11FL won’t be going forward, at least with its original name and interesting offensive strategies.

Do you think the FXFL will succeed and can it become a true developmental league for the NFL?
