The Cleveland Browns are looking to fill a lot of holes this off-season and with only so much money to spend, they’d be wise to look at the XFL for answers.
Week two is in the books and it’s time to look at the XFL players who made a case and stood out in week two of the league’s reboot season. The Browns have enough cap space for one or two big offers this off-season but if they bring back a few key players, and sign a few potential key free agents, then the Browns will need to look more economic options.
With the ‘money-ball’ philosophy that surrounds the organization, there are many who misconstrue that as the team not going to offer big deals. That’s not how it’s going to go. What the team will do is value the player’s worth. There aren’t going to be anymore Paul Kruger deals. No more going over the top to sign medicore free agents.
In other words, they’re going to be responsible with the money. Every great NFL team has to have that mindset, which is why we’re here talking about XFL prospects. Each player can sign with NFL teams at the conclusion of the season, and most of them will be coming in with very affordable numbers. If you can sign a few guys from the XFL that turn into starters, then you just saved a lot of money to spend on bigger names. It’s a frugal and smart way of bringing in talent, and one that many NFL teams will be looking to capitalize on.
So with that being said, let’s take a look at the top talents from week two of XFL action and see which names fell off and which ones stepped up after week one.
