The XFL has suspended the 2020 season over the coronavirus. It did not rule out a return for a postseason or championship game.

However, it seems unlikely the league returns until next season.

That was made even more clear when XFL players were told they can sign immediately with teams in the NFL or any other league, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports. The XFL will hold exit physicals Friday.

P.J. Walker, Cam Phillips, Josh Johnson and Jordan Ta’amu are among the players expected to be snapped up by the NFL.

The good news for XFL players is they will receive their base pay and benefits for the 2020 regular season despite playing only half the season.

  1. Way ahead of how the AAF ended, I will given them that. Learn from your scheduling mistakes and you might have a fighting chance.

  2. I really enjoyed the XFL. Went to a Dallas game and had a blast. Great fans and a fun college-like atmosphere. I look forward to enjoying the league again in 2021.

  3. Sounds like Oliver Luck is sticking by his word regarding taking care of the XFL players.

    I can respect that, especially considering how badly the Alliance treated their guys.
