Just goes to show how much rope being a draft pick will get you: Sloman seemed to be consistently behind the other two kickers through camp (in terms of FG accuracy) according to most media reports.

There are still practice squads to be filled so it's likely there will be plenty of XFL players on those practice squads.

The Panthers released their initial 53-man roster; QB PJ Walker has made the team.

EDIT: So has S Kenny Robinson.

While having XFL stars like Ta'amu and Phillips miss the regular season rosters may disappoint them as far as their paychecks, it's good for Johnson/Garcia/Cardinale, since it means plenty of continuity.

And, like last year, even if they do make the practice squad, that doesn't rule them out from returning after the regular season.

Looks like the tally after today of who made rosters:

QB PJ Walker, Panthers
S Kenny Robinson, Panthers
OT Storm Norton, Chargers
TE Donald Parham, Chargers

With waiver claims and practice squad additions scheduled for tomorrow, things could change.

Sucks that Ta"amu got cut, But I would love to see him return as the Battlehawks QB.

I think people were basing it on how many teams kept three quarterbacks, i.e. if JT and PJW switched, JT would have got the spot in Carolina. As it was there was no way that Reid was going to keep two 35+ QBs behind Mahomes, so JT was on the right track (he beat out his predecessor Shea Patterson)

No way he isn't on the PS.
