  This is the USFL Vs. NFL - Order in the Court
Remember that NFL teams hold its player’s rights once they draft them, meaning players like Spencer, Trumaine Johnson, etc., will still be drafted by NFL clubs, but later in the selection process, hoping they’ll be available in a few years down the road when their contracts expire.
Given the NFL's tendency to have come out losers in the courts back then, the USFL was banking on the NFL coming to terms with them rather than battling the antitrust suit in the courts or waiting for the USFL to die a death attributable to dollar anemia.
The NFL claims that those losses were self-inflicted, brought about by the USFL’s failure to adhere to its original concept: namely, a league of competitive though lesser (and lesser-priced) talents which would provide an exciting game to those fans for whom, apparently, five months of football was inadequate.

  Wikipedia: NFL Rejects
This bias, evidently fed by loyalty to the rival National Football League (NFL), was expressed in many ways: CBS-TV refusing to give AFL scores on its broadcasts of NFL games; Sports Illustrated giving AFL games short shrift and fl-and-white photos, if any, while it covered NFL games with feature stories and lush color pictures.
Perhaps the most damning claim was the one by newspaper, radio and TV reporters from NFL cities, calling AFL players "NFL Rejects", implying that if a player had spent time in the NFL and then played with an AFL team, he was "washed up" and not good enough to play in the "superior" league.
At the peaks of their careers, all would have gladly been "taken back" by the NFL teams that "rejected" them.

In the late 1950s, many players released by the NFL, or un-drafted and unsigned out of college by the NFL, went North to try their luck with the CFL, and later returned to the states to play in the AFL.

It was, after all, a whole league of "expansion teams." But there were teams in the NFL in 1960 which would have found it rather difficult to achieve winning seasons in either of the AFL divisions.
