Said Furman: “The Spring League was very beneficial for me. The chance to play football for three weeks and get my body in football shape was tremendous. The coaching staff was amazing…The Spring League practices and games were very well run and professional. The Spring League is a great platform for free agents to get back on the field and try to further their goal of getting signed to a professional football team.”
