Eric Galko idea about XFL 2020 waiver system

We're circling the drain on the XFL dead zone, so here's something I thought was interesting: Former XFL Director of Player Personnel Eric Galko revealed today on Twitter an idea he had about how the XFL's waiver system could've worked. https://twitter.com/EricGalko/status/1438124610759929858 "...

Re: P.J. Walker

I’ll have a column later this week looking at what former XFL players stuck on rosters and practice squads once those are announced. Strangely, it could be more than last year at this time.

This is all after Comissioner Mark Cohon not denying talks with the XFL may restart after the season and also the Argos starting quite a number of former XFL players. Things ...
