New York Guardians Trade Safety Shamarko Thomas in 3-team trade

The first 3-team trade in XFL history is officially in the books. The DC Defenders, Los Angles Wildcats and New York Guardians finalized the transaction on Monday evening.

The trade sends Safety Shamarko Thomas from the Guardians to the Defenders, Guard Khalil Mackenzie is shipped from the Defenders to the Wildcats and the Guardians welcome Guard Damien Mama from the Wildcats.

Thomas joins an already strong DC secondary with Rahim Moore, Tyree Kinnel and Carlos Merritt at the Safety position but brings with him plenty of NFL experience. The 28-year-old has played in 66 NFL games over 6 seasons where he totaled 69 tackles. Expect the DC secondary to be one of the best in the league.

Thomas played 6 games with the Broncos in 2018.

Standing at 6 foot 5 and 314 pounds, McKenzie could be a great addition to the Wildcats offensive line. Kahlil McKenzie, son of former NFL Linebacker Reggie McKenzie, was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 6th round of the 2018 NFL draft as a Defensive Lineman before the Chiefs switched him over to the offensive side of the ball.

McKenzie spent all of 2019 on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad.

The New York Guardians clearly think their offensive line needs work. Mama is the third guard added by the team via trade in the past few days. Mama was picked up by the Chiefs after the 2017 NFL draft. In the past few years, he made appearances with the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys before moving to the AAF to start for the San Diego Fleet.
