The St. Louis Battlehawks have now sent 14 players to the NFL. Running back Brian Hill, and cornerback Elijah Hamilton are signing NFL contracts today.

RB Brian Hill

First up, running back Brian Hill has signed with the San Francisco 49ers, per ML Football. Hill had a workout with the 49ers on August 8th.

In the XFL’s 2023 season, Hill was a key piece to Anthony Becht’s offense. He finished the year with 425 rushing yards and a touchdown, averaging 4.7 YPC.

Hill has spent a decent chunk of time in the NFL with multiple teams: Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, and San Francisco 49ers.

Now, the 49ers are bringing him back for depth ahead of the final preseason game.

CB Elijah Hamilton

Cornerback Elijah Hamilton is signing with the Green Bay Packers, per ML Football.

Elijah Hamilton played for the St. Louis Battlehawks during the 2023 XFL season. St. Louis featured a solid defense, as we’ve seen quite a few of its members head to the NFL.

Hamilton was one of those pieces, playing in eight games for the Battlehawks – starting in three of them. He finished the season with 13 total tackles.

For Elijah, the NFL is nothing new. He’s spent time with the Miami Dolphins, and also had a short stint with Green Bay a year ago. With more professional experience under his belt in the XFL, the Packers have opted to bring him back with one preseason game left.

Hamilton and Hill are the 58th and 59th XFL players to sign an NFL contract. Due to the national platform that the XFL provided Hamilton and Hill with, they now have an opportunity to pursue their NFL dreams with the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.
