From there, he earned a couple of stints in the NFL, including one with the Cincinnati Bengals. After becoming a free agent ahead of the XFL’s 2023 season, Jacques Patrick was picked up by the San Antonio Brahmas, and became one of their key offensive pieces.

St. Louis Battlehawks DB LaVert Hill has also signed to the NFL, joining the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hill joins Nevelle Clarke as two spring football athletes to sign with Pittsburgh this past week.
Hill finished the XFL 2023 season with 25 tackles and two interceptions, providing the Battlehawks defense with plenty of stability in the secondary. After a successful XFL tenure, Lavert gets to continue his professional career with the Steelers.
The XFL continues to prove why it belongs in the landscape of professional football. With 54 players signed to the NFL and counting, the league has stayed true to its promise, which is an encouraging sight.
