New Orleans VooDooEdit

After failing to make the Chicago Bears following their mini-camp, Kennedy was assigned to the New Orleans VooDoo of the Arena Football League.[6] In his first week with the team, he beat out fellow rookie, Brian Hudson, to become the VooDoo starting quarterback.[7] Kennedy started the final seven games for the VooDoo, leading them to a 1–6 recording during that time. In September 2014, the VooDoo picked up Kennedy's rookie option to retain him for the 2015 season.[8]

Tampa Bay StormEdit

On December 7, 2015, Kennedy was assigned to the Tampa Bay Storm.[9]
