In a remarkable testament to the talent cultivated in the XFL, another 11 players have received invites to NFL training camps this week. This brings the total count of XFL players invited to NFL camps to 66, adding to the 2 invites from the week prior. The impressive number underscores the XFL’s role as a hotbed for nurturing football talent. Even more invites are expected in the following weeks.
Among the standouts receiving invites are Houston Roughnecks’ running back Max Borghi and DC Defenders’ wide receiver Chris Blair. Borghi ranked fifth in rushing in the XFL, racking up 310 yards on 78 attempts and scoring 6 touchdowns.
