Take the current roster of an NFL team and draft baseball players who have the same last name.

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams

There should be only 1 instance of name usage, unless you have multiple Johnsons on the NFL roster for example.

$140 mil salary
No WW
No AAA
No DH
Trades welcome
40 game live

Stadium should be closest geographically to the NFL team's stadium.

Can we use names of coaches, front office, and owners, and would the Jets and Giants have to share the same MLB stadium too?

Also maybe consider all-time teams, then I could use Deion Sanders for...Deion Sanders!

I'll take the washington redskins

Use current players only please.
As far as Jets and Giants, I would suggest Jets get AFC (American League) stadium and Giants get NFC (National). Bears would get Wrigley.

can we use injury reserve and or practice squad
12/8/2012 8:26 AM
The Bills

Actually Jets should get Citi Field since they used to play at Shea and Giants should get Yankee Stadium since they played at the original one.

I will let you know soon.

Another question: Variations on spelling allowed, such as Keith Foulke for Nick Folk or Shawn Green for Shonn Greene? (The latter would be perfect!)

As a Jets fan, I will take the New York Football Giants simply because I like their names better. I hope this comes with Yankee Stadium given the histories of both (formerly) New York teams.

When I said "all-time," I meant "historical" (single-season), but I am OK with current teams only.

Spelling variations are fine.

You can use either New York Stadium. In fact, if someone takes the Jets, they can also use that same stadium.
