Dragons coach Jim Zorn said Brandon Silvers, who threw for 10,677 yards in four seasons at Troy (2014-17), will be the XFL team’s starting quarterback in its season opener Feb. 8 at the D.C. Defenders.
Silvers beat out former Seahawk B.J. Daniels, who will be the backup, and Joe Callahan, who did not make the 52-man roster announced Monday.
“He’s probably been more effective throwing the ball,” Zorn said of Silvers, who was assigned to the team before the draft. “He doesn’t move as well as B.J., but his concern is to do what he does well. B.J. is coming on, and we have high expectations for him, but we can only play one at a time.”
The team expects to release a full depth chart within the next week.
