    Can't believe Ahman left the NFL for the UFL. I live in Omaha, the team for which he is playing for, and i could care less about the UFL. Am i missing something or did he just decide to leave? I know i will miss him. He brought a toughness and work ethic that was great to see.

    The Packers kicked him to the curb basically.
    He still has a home in Green Bay and wanted to stay with the Packers very badly.

    I thought he ran well and hard last year. In fact, I trusted him on short yardage runs more than Grant even, and I am a Grant supporter.

    It wasn't Ahman's fault he had to return kickoffs, which he is not equipped to do.
    If Starks or Jackson gets hurt, maybe Ahman will be called back again.

    did his contract run out or did they cut him? You don't just cut Ahman. Show some loyalty and respect

    His contract was up. He will be back in a few years to be inducted in the packers hall of fame no doubt.

    no one is a bigger ahman fan than i am. but the sad reality is, he was a third round draft choice of the seahawks in 1998. this would be his 13th season and in "running back" time that makes him jurassic. it will be awhile before anyone takes his packer rushing title.

    I thought when he was brought in he was the better RB.

    But later in the season, he was plain terrible. He couldn't get any yards...

    Seifert made a post about it. UFL season ends in mid-november. He'll be game-ready, if any team is in need of a backup RB by then. This is a great move for him, and as I'm a big fan of Batman, I wish him the best, with whatever team he signs, if he signs with any (exept the bears and queens, but he's a true Packer, he would NEVER sign with those, even if he needed money, which he doesn't).

    Loyalty and respect went out the door years ago. You don't ship out Brett Favre the way they did if you care about showing Packer legends loyalty and respect. They're making football moves, and in this case it's the right football move. Sucks that Ahman has to go, but it's the correct move.
