New League Gives Ex-Browns a Second Chance

Former Cleveland Browns players are getting a second shot in the spotlight, thanks to the newly formed United Football League.

The UFL boasts real, traditional, 11-on-11 football in NFL quality stadiums. In it's first season it has four teams, based out of New York, California, Florida, and Las Vegas.

Versus and HDNet have picked up a few of the games, and the league plans on adding more teams next season.

Anybody who follows the Cleveland Browns closely may recognize a few of the names participating in the league. Most notably, Charles Ali spent 2008 with Cleveland, Leon Williams was a fourth round pick in 2006, and Noah Herron who spent the recent preseason here, head up the New York Sentinels, but a few other names may surprise you to see again.

The next Sentinels game will be on Versus, November 12th, at 7:00 p.m.

New York Sentinels, ex-Browns:
Charles Ali (FB - 2009 preseason), Leon Williams (LB - 2006 draft pick), Noah Herron (RB - 2009 preseason), Steve Sanders (WR - 2008 active roster), Tra Battle (S - 2009 preseason), Chris Barclay (RB - 2007 preseason)

California Redwoods, ex-Browns:
Parker Douglass (K - 2009 training camp)

Florida Tuskers, ex-Browns:
Keith Heinrich (TE - 2003 to 2005)
