The XFL signed Landry Jones.... and there was much rejoicing. Everybody wondered which QB would be signed next.

That was almost a month ago.

Crickets... chirp... chirp.... chirp....

Kind of becoming a habit, isn't it?

They have several in the draft pool that likely be starters. While unsure how the tier one side of things play out but it's not like they don't have anybody. Just one signed to a guaranteed contract.

Some QBs they may be considering signing (for Tier 1 or otherwise) could be those who are also waiting on NFL offers. They may be taking this first month or two of the NFL season to see how many workout invites they get and see what interest levels are from teams. Those who may be one injury away from getting signed may decide to hold out longer to see if something in the NFL comes up. Those who, after the first few weeks, aren't getting workout invites or visits they're expecting, may then decide to sign.

Rare is the guy who is (a) seen as worthy of a Tier-1 spot in this league yet who (b) also isn't on the NFL radar. Landry Jones was a bit of a unicorn in that regard, and I think he took a little bit of a chance signing with the XFL when he did.
