Another soon-to-be-doomed start-up league. But at least by playing in the spring, if they can survive a couple of seasons, maybe the NFL will have a new spring developmental league.

USFL to kick off first season in spring '14
Posted Oct. 04, 2012 @ 5:33 p.m. ET

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The United States Football League says it will kick off its inaugural season in the spring of 2014.

The original USFL played from 1983-87, then went out of business after winning a lawsuit against the NFL and collecting only $3.

When the reformation of the league was announced earlier this year, organizers targeted playing next March. Now, that date has been pushed back a year.

Plans are for a 14-game season played by eight franchises, none of which has been identified yet.

All players and coaches contracts will be owned by the USFL, and each team owner will be a member-operator of the league.
