Experimental Football League Coming to Austin!

Former NFL players Tommie Harris, a three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, and Eric Bassey have plans to launch The Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL) in October as a developmental league with no NFL affiliation but with a lot of innovative ideas.

The League will give players a chance to develop their skills for another shot at the NFL or maybe even a place for college athletes, not yet eligible for the NFL, to improve their skills for a shot at playing with the big dogs down the road.

The FXFL teams will be based out of Austin, New York and Boston areas, Oregon, Nebraska, and Florida. The teams will play six games this fall in minor league baseball stadiums, with an emphasis on gaining experience. The main idea is to advance the talents of players, coaches, officials and front office executives. The FXFL franchise has a long-term goal of partnering with the NFL which would give them a way to work with younger players that they don’t currently have.

“This league will provide the opportunity for players who otherwise might not get it,” Bassey says. “There’s those 100-150 players who don’t get drafted and this would be a perfect opportunity for them. We’re talking about extremely good athletes, and we will set up a platform for those guys to get an opportunity to prove themselves. Sometimes they are not ready to play at that pace of the NFL when they get out of school. Maybe they just need that one year or two years.”
