XFL Rosters were released, and six of the eight teams feature former LSU Tigers. It looks like two of the teams were not thinking straight when choosing their 52 guys. Let’s take a look at the teams that made the right decision.
Former Buckeye, Cardale Jones, leads the Defenders. However, they have taken more former LSU players than any other team. Three guys have traded in their purple and gold for red and white.
Malachi Dupre – Wide Receiver
Nick Brossette – Running Back
Sam Montgomery – Defensive End
New York Guardians
The New York Guardians have one of the strongest XFL rosters. They are a heavy favorite in Vegas and had a good showing in the preseason. The smart move of adding two Tigers to the roster will only help them even more. One of these Tigers can throw a mean right hook; the other will pancake your ass to the ground.
Terrence Alexander – Cornerback
Garrett Brumfield – Center
Los Angeles Wildcats
The Wildcats are another team that should make a splash in the XFL. After trading away Luis Perez, we know that Josh Johnson will be lining up under center. Therefore, the offense will be in good hands. The defense will be led by a former Tiger whose nickname reminds me of those girls in college.
Anthony “The Freak” Johnson – Defensive End
The Dragons have an interesting roster. This explains why Vegas is offering up a high return when betting on the Dragons to win it all. Their roster features five tight ends, which is strange because most teams only have 2. However, among those five tight ends is this former Tiger.
Colin Jeter – Tight End
Tampa Bay Vipers
The Vipers acquired a former Tiger with the first-ever trade in the XFL. Their strong roster features a defense that will be led by a cornerback from the real DBU. He also has NFL experience with the Atlanta Falcons during their embarrassing let down in Super Bowl 51.
Jalen Collins – Cornerback
The Roughnecks have an impressive offense, with two quarterbacks that could start on other teams. Those guys will need protection. Therefore, the Roughnecks looked to a former Tiger to lead the O-Line.
Toby Weathersby – Offensive Lineman
What About The Other Teams?
The Dallas Renegades and St. Louis BattleHawks have decided not to put any former Tigers on their roster. Is that a bad thing? Probably not. Does it make me not want to watch them? Probably so. Dallas is the heavy favorite to win the championship. However, I have my money on the New York Guardians and the Tigers who can brawl. This is Domi departing; hold it.
