QB targets for XFL 3.0

Post by XFLGUY » Sun Aug 16, 2020 5:11 pm

I saw an article a few days ago talking about Blake Bortles as a QB the league should go after when it starts again and it got me thinking about who else might be out there that would be available.I know Matt Leinart threw his name into the mix recently. You also have the same couple of retreads that always get mentioned in Tim Tebow and Johnny Manziel, but who else is out there that you think would be a good fit and would be available?

I'll have to comb through the D1 football rosters a bit because I imagine there's going to be a lot of fringe prospects that go underscouted due to the cancelled college season. I'm sure some will return to school in 2021 but those who try to go pro and fail to make an NFL roster will have a lot to prove.
Spruuuuuuuce

Here's a name to remember: Kelly Bryant. He started at Clemson and finished up last season at Missouri, then went undrafted and unsigned following the draft. He recently worked out for Arizona Cardinals.

I would think that with the cancellation of the CFL season, their would be some qb’s who would want to have the opportunity to play a season in the XFL if there is indeed a season in the spring.

Every starter is under contract and won't be leaving the CFL.

Some updates: Blake Bortles is signed with Denver, who also called up Brett Rypien from the Practice Squad.

The CFL no longer has anyone under contract. They released everyone on August 24, 2020.

Exactly and many players can play CFL then move to CFL anyway. Long year but gives them chance to make up the money

Many of the 2020 XFL QB's will be on NFL-PSquads and be available come Jan

Plus all the new players from this college season AND as mentioned above the CFL. There will be plenty of players.

Every starting quarterback in the CFL is still under contract. Vernon Adams initially opted out but later changed his mind.

Every player is still under contract unless they specifically opt out.
