    I really don’t want to see Mallett, Manziel or Kaepernick in the NFL or the
    XFL for that matter. I would love to see Tebow play in Tampa Bay and I’m curious
    to see what Landry has to offer. If I were the XFL, I would draft Trevor
    Lawrence even if he has no intention of leaving Clemson. It would show the XFL
    means business.

      I think Tebow on Tampa makes sense. His season with the Syracuse Mets ended with him being injured, the V likely hood of him returning to baseball is slim. I wish him the best.
