Many Cleveland Browns could not make their NFL careers work. Maybe the XFL could be their ticket to success.
The last time the XFL was seen on television was in 2001, their only season in existence. Former NFL players or NFL hopefuls played in the league then. On Thursday, WWE chairman Vince McMahon announced the XFL will be back. Therefore, it would make sense to see some former Cleveland Browns players involved.
Regardless of how successful the XFL is this time around, any league not abbreviated NFL will simply be a developmental/minor league. While the XFL looks to be more than that, if the league is simply just a minor league, that’s okay.
Too many times we see players on the Browns and the other 31 teams play too soon and before we know it are out of the league. It’s the way of the land now in the NFL but maybe this is the solution indirectly that’s been needed.
Whether you liked the original XFL or not, we will all see a new approach to the league which McMahon explained here. Although the XFL is coming back, games won’t actually be played until 2020.
So, as we wait for McMahon’s league, here are five former Browns players that should play in the league. Given how Cleveland has drafted nearly all potential options are past their prime but if their love for the game is still there, maybe things could work out for them.
