The XFL continues to provide its athletes with opportunities. Houston Roughnecks DB Andrew Whitaker (Seattle) and OL Jack Snyder (Minnesota) have both signed with the NFL teams over the past couple of days.
Jack Snyder played for the Houston Roughnecks during the inaugural XFL season, proving to be one of the top lineman in the league. Snyder was originally signed by the Los Angeles Rams as an UDFA.
He attended college at SJSU, and holds the record for the most starts (52) and most games played (57), which is an impressive stat. Now, Snyder will hope to help boost the Vikings offensive line, but first he will have to prove himself in training camp.
Andrew Whitaker was originally with the Houston Roughnecks, but eventually released. Regardless, he was invited to the Seahawks mini camp back in May. Now, he’s officially signed with the team.
The XFL has sent 33 players to the NFL so far (34 including Chris Steele). It’s encouraging to see the league stay true to their promise: giving athletes a spotlight to live out their professional dreams.
