football was also the debut of tyrone holmes. the eagle point native is one of nine linebackers on the roster of the san antonio commanders, and last night suited up for his first competitive football action since 2017. a nationally televised game with a local flare... holmes registered a sack in san antonio's win over san diego, which goes down as the second of his professional career. some background on the aaf... it's a league studded with former nfl players and coaches and is being billed as a developmental and a feeder league to the nfl. with holmes already having nfl experience and lots of practice squad reps, he says he's using it as a way to compile film and get looks in an actual game. holmes says, "when you're on the bottom half of a roster, you don't get a whole lot of game reps and a lot of opportunity for me to gain more game experience and show what i can do on the field outside of a practice situation." back in december, we told you how holmes had signed a practice squad contract with the l-a chargers... but after the chargers were eliminated from the playoffs, that contract ended, as all practice squad contracts do... and he had the option to either resign or pursue other opportunities. he finds himself in the aaf now... hoping to turn that into an invite to ota's with an nfl team come may.
