New football leagues are popping up all over the place, including one founded by Don Yee, the agent for Tom Brady.
Yee’s league is called the Pacific Pro Football League, and it has its eyes on playing its first season in July. Yee thinks a player like Trevor Lawrence would be ideal for the league, which is for players who are not eligible for the NFL Draft.
In an interview with 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, Yee talked about his league and made an offer to the Clemson Tigers quarterback.
“Our player population, for example, will be players such as Trevor Lawrence at Clemson,” Yee said, via 247 Sports. “We would like to make him an employment offer, professionalize right away. Be our Joe Namath. Adidas is one of our founding sponsors, and I think they might want to make him an endorsement proposal. And he would be professional, and he would learn an NFL style of game with us before he declares for the draft.”
