As part of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy proceedings, the XFL has reached out to cities like Seattle, St Louis, and Houston to secure their agreements as assets if the XFL were to be purchased by a new owner. In effect, with a new owner, these cities are on board for XFL 3.0.
In court documents, we learn late last month that over 20 potential buyers have signed NDA’s. We also learned that Houston Roughnecks head coach June Jones would be on board if the XFL were to return in 2021.
The Roughnecks finished 5 and 0 in the shortened season. Ranking 3rd in total offense at 343.4 (YDS/G) behind projected MVP P.J. Walker. 3rd in total defense and 1st in sacks.
