Getting back to the NFL was the goal of San Diego Fleet players, and seven made it there last month.
Now it gets tougher.
Teams will cut rosters from 90 to 53 before the NFL season opens and also will swap out players from the bottom. Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings released former Fleet safety Jordan Martin to add a cornerback.
The recent NFL Draft stacked the odds higher against Alex Barrett and Kameron Kelly, alums of San Diego State who started all eight Fleet games before the team’s parent league, the Alliance of American Football, was shut down.
