It appears Ryan Willis’ career in St. Louis is over. Per XFL News Hub and XFL Analyst, assigned Quarterback Ryan Willis has been released. Sources close to the team disclose that Willis and the team mutually parted ways after he was informed, he would not be starting. Willis a veteran of the Spring League where he won MVP and the Megabowl, now is a free agent during the XFL’s crucial cut week in which teams need to get their roster down to 51 by February 10th.
Willis was first rumored to be joining the Battlehawks in September by XFL Insider Mike Mitchell as the first wave of assigned Quarterbacks. Willis was assigned by the Battlehawks on November 15th along with AJ McCarron during the Quarterback Assignment period by the XFL with Nick Tiano being assigned on November 17th. For Willis with the beginning of XFL cuts there is still an opportunity to be picked up by another XFL team or even the USFL.
For the Battlehawks it now appears that AJ McCarron is now the QB1 for the franchise going into 2023. With Willis now a free agent again, it not only shows the team is all in on McCarron but also Nick Tiano who was the teams most inexperienced Quarterback.
For the Battlehawks with the season starting on February 19th vs San Antonio Brahmas, Coach Becht will turn to A.J. McCarron to bring the city of St. Louis a championship for a fan base that has been waiting for football for the last three years.
