Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris has picked the Arizona Hotshots as his new favorite team in the Alliance of American Football.

New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch initially seemed lukewarm on the Alliance of American Football (AAF), but after a successful opening weekend in which it beat the National Basketball Association on ABC in ratings, he now sees the league as a positive for the NFL. The Ravens are well represented with a dozen players on the eight teams. There's one big name in particular: Trent Richardson.

Here's a list that was made by NESN's Zack Cox of former New England Patriots players that are involved.

The Jets' 2016 second-round draft pick went just 10-of-23 for 87 yards with an interception for the Memphis Express, who lost to the Birmingham Iron, 26-0.

It may also help a player breakthrough and reemerge onto the National Football League scene once they are able to fine tune their game in the AAF. They had a good start this weekend. A quick scan of the league's eight teams reveals at least 19 former Patriots - including something called Steve Beauharnais - now are on rosters.

The former highly touted National Football League prospect is now on the Memphis Express in the AAF, and he bombed Sunday in a 26-0 loss to the Birmingham Iron.
