Updated Tracker: Top 150 XFL Players Who Could Sign an NFL Contract

The XFL has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and suspended it’s operations. On a positive note, former players of the league now have the opportunity to sign with the NFL.

The league was filled with NFL-caliber players, you can expect over a 100+ players to sign with an NFL team’s preseason 90-man roster – to compete for a spot on a 52-man roster or practice squad.

Here’s a list of a 150 players in the XFL that have the ability to make an NFL 90-man roster. Some of these players have a very great shot at making a final 52-man roster, while many will have to prove themselves again this offseason.

The majority of these players have received at least one opportunity NFL so far in their career. These players either proved themselves in the XFL or have shown enough to at least have a chance to get picked up by an NFL team.

This list is not in ranked order.. It’s mostly randomly typed out, I listed a number next to them to keep track of how many there are. This list will continuously be updated when players get signed to NFL teams. There are some players I did not include on this list that definitely still have a chance. Here’s the list..
