The Alliance of American Football is already out of business, but at least one of its players is headed back to the NFL.
Cornerback Keith Reaser has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, ESPN reported, making him the first AAF player to sign with an NFL team after the first-year developmental league ceased operations earlier this week.
Reaser, the 49ers’ fifth-round pick in 2014, played for the Orlando Apollos of the AAF, making three interceptions in eight games. He appeared in 30 games for San Francisco and Kansas City from 2014-17.
The financially strapped AAF had announced earlier Thursday that its stranded players were immediately were eligible to sign NFL deals.
Reaser, 27, reportedly received a $50,000 signing bonus from the Chiefs and also can earn an additional $50,000 in workout and roster bonuses.
