Also congrats to the XFL alum who won the United Bowl as Garrett Hartley, the former Dragon (who never kicked) who signed with Massachusetts in mid-playoffs, hit the game-winner in OT to beat the Rattlers (and his replacement, Ernesto Lacayo).

Toby Johnson nicked his hamstring in the OT but I'm sure the ring makes up for it

I have a feeling we're going to get into James Vaughters/Raymond Ventrione territory........by midseason with some of these guys.

Everybody here knows about the Vaughters shuffle/shuttle with the Bears two years ago, Ventrione famously made it an art form over his career.

Prior to week four, DT Gabe Wright was released from Washington's practice squad. Also, I missed TE De'Quan Hampton getting signed by the Seahawks to their practice squad mid-September. He too was released this week.

S Kenny Robinson was a practice squad elevation by the Panthers for today's game.

Steve Levy finally gets to call a Donald Parham TD, as all five Renegade games were either late Sat FOX or on Sunday--although I believe the next game would have been Levy/McElroy's
