With Wednesday marking the opening of Arena Football League free agency, the Spokane Shock exercised rookie options to keep 2014 first-year players on their roster for the upcoming season.
This offseason marks the end of the first group of two-year contracts available to veterans, meaning a majority of the league’s veterans are expected to become free agents.
Spokane exercised rookie options for 14 players: defensive backs Bryant Nnabuife, J.T. Fitzgerald, Jimmy Williams and Samuel Pope; defensive lineman Bryson Kelly; offensive lineman/fullback Rory Nixon; offensive linemen Deveric Gallington and Mark Jackson; quarterbacks Jarrett Brown and Joe Southwick; and wide receivers Andrew Joseph, Nick Truesdell, Rashaad Carter and Samuel Charles.
