Rugby star says the NFL needs a developmental league; He would still play if they had one

Jarryd Hayne has the Jewish community upset over his tweets

Jarryd Hayne has retired from the NFL

Jarryd Hayne may not be playing in the NFL anymore as he retired, but the former Rugby star is now saying if the NFL had a developmental team he would still be playing.

“If there was a second division team where I could get those mental reps of being on the field, 100 per cent I’d go back to the NFL,” Hayne told the New Zealand Herald. “I’m at the end of my career where I really (have) just got to get on the field. I just want to be on the field. I’ve played eight games in two years. If I went back there to the NFL it’d be one of those things where I’d be a second or third string guy helping out but not really getting a lot of game time.”

Many have been pushing for a developmental league but the NFL will not budge.
