Vince McMahon, Terrell Owens and Ricky Williams apparently aren’t the only sports figures attempting to cash in on the new rage of competing professional football leagues.
With both the Alliance of American Football and XFL set to kick off here soon, Tom Brady’s agent is looking to get into the game.
It was announced on Tuesday that Don Yee will join forces with former NFL Media personality Jamie Hemann to start a league called Pacific Pro Football.
This is not a drill. It’s really happening.

This will be the fourth professional football league to drop around the sports world over the past couple years. It started with the XFL announcing its return after a near two-decade hiatus.
Former NFL coaches and players then announced the creation of the Alliance of American Football. That league will start the week after the Super Bowl and already have a broadcast relationship with CBS.
Then, just a short while ago, former NFL stars Terrell Owens and Ricky Williams announced they are starting a league of their own.
