Birmingham, meet your new pro football team!

Birmingham Iron Luncheon at The Club

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Birmingham Iron held a “Meet the Team” luncheon at The Club Monday afternoon. The new pro football team is part of the American Alliance Football League (AAF).

The 52-man roster has a number of names you may recognize from Alabama, Auburn, and Samford. This inaugural season gives the players an opportunity to showcase their skills to NFL scouts before mini-camps. For some, this could be the last chance to make it to the NFL. “There’s no pressure. I’m just looking at the fact we’re blessed to be back out here and playing football again,” former Alabama quarterback Blake Sims said.

The Birmingham Iron kickoff the season Sunday at Legion Field versus Memphis Express at 3 p.m.
