"On behalf of the entire Boise Bandits team, we thank you all for your kindness and support," writes spokesperson Maya Reneé. "We are truly humbled by the love we have been given. We hope to see you all next season. Wishing you all a fun and safe summer with those you love!" 
She continues: "If you would be interested in supporting or sponsoring our former players individually as they move on to their next endeavor Please feel free to contact me at 208-995-3243 and I will be sure to get you in contact with that individual. These men will continue to work towards their passion and we wish them all the best."
What is developmental professional football?

According to PDFL.com:

It is 11 on 11 football played under NFL rules. It is designed to 
give high caliber athletes and coaches a platform to display and improve their skills and pursue professional careers at the next level. 


The vision for the PDFL is to create a professional league based on integrity in everything we do. The league focus will be on giving former collegiate/professional athletes an avenue to continue to play competitive football with an ultimate goal of getting an opportunity to be invited to an NFL training camp. With the reality that making it into the NFL is so small, we also develop mentor programs for the players that focus on resume writing, interviewing, and networking. 

The league will also provide internships to players in their degree area in order to help them find future employment. The majority of players on PDFL teams have college football backgrounds playing previously at the D1, D2, or D3 level and have achieved their college degree or have actual experience playing for professional leagues like the NFL, CFL, and Indoor Football Leagues. This ensures a higher level of professionalism, competition, and dedication to the game. The PDFL teams also offer more to the community with the ability to advertise local businesses and attractions on televised games.
