Former Eagles in the XFL: Week 1

The first weekend after the Super Bowl is usually filled with emptiness with the realization that football won't be around until the summer, especially with the Eagles coming just short of another Lombardi Trophy. This year is different though as there will be two other football leagues: The USFL and the XFL. The Xtreme Football League's third reboot officially got underway over the weekend.


The XFL is hoping to be an outlet for NFL fans to get through the offseason and maybe even eventually compete with the NFL for ratings. For the players, it is a way to get additional reps and film to their name that NFL scouts and general managers can use to see if they want to give these players shots in Training Camp this summer. After the XFL season concludes in May, players are free to sign with NFL teams.

All eight teams played this weekend, and seven of those teams have former Eagles on them. A total of 30 players in the league have spent at least some time on the Eagles 53-man roster or training camp roster. Here's a look at the former Eagles who appeared in this weekend's boxscores:
