On Tuesday and Wednesday, each of the eight teams of USFL 2.0 will acquire the rights to 35 players who have already signed contracts with the league. So who are the eligible players? Officially, we don’t know. And we won’t know.

The USFL won’t be disclosing the list of available players in advance of the draft. Thus, we won’t know who they are until their names are called next week.

A report has emerged listing the names of many of the available players. Few if any names jump off the page. Maybe that’s why the USFL isn’t listing the names in advance.

Regardless, we’ll know 280 names within the next five days. And some of those players will become better known once the resurrected league starts playing games in April.

  1. Question. If they play in the USFL and play great,can they get signed and play by the NFL this year also?

  2. Man if you want fans to get engaged in the league disclose the names and allow fans to watch the draft. I’d tune in for the first few rounds to see who got who.

  3. A bunch of used-to-be’s, never has been’s and never will be’s, with a couple guys that will catch a break and get to the league.

  4. “A bunch of used-to-be’s, never has been’s and never will be’s, with a couple guys that will catch a break and get to the league.”

    I am proud of the guys for just trying to make something happen for themselves. There are so many people who are not trying anymore.

    I just hope that they allow those guys who played for the Spring League for free an opportunity to at least try out. It would be so unfair to those guys if they are not given a chance. Not giving them a chance is like building on a shaky foundation. And if you try to build on a foundation that is not solid it will soon fall. They never know if XFL will win some of the players that they are depending upon now.

  5. Risking crippling injury and concussion related brain damage for what amounts to chump change isn’t a real bright idea. If you can’t even get on the practice squad in the big leagues, an NFL future is probably a very, very, very long shot.
