Brett Hundley Signs With XFL Vegas Vipers For 2023

XFL Vegas Vipers Sign QB Brett Hundley, Release Bryan Scott

In a turn of events, the Vegas Vipers have made a QB change. With less than three weeks to go until the XFL kicks off, the Vipers have signed Brett Hundley for the 2023 season.

This is quite the move, especially considering the circumstances. Bryan Scott, the former Philadelphia Star, was projected by many to be the starter for Vegas. He shared that QB room with Luis Perez, and Jalan McClendon.

Now, everything has shifted. Due to Hundley signing with the Vipers, Bryan Scott was released.

Brett Hundley signing with Vegas certainly came out of left field. Hundley has spent plenty of years in the NFL, most recently with the Baltimore Ravens. He has also been with the Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, and Seattle Seahawks.

All of a sudden, Hundley is now the projected starter in Vegas. This almost seems like a no brainer. There would be no reason for Vegas to bring in the NFL veteran if he wasn’t primed to start for the team.

However, he will have to get accustomed to the playbook quickly. On February 18th, the Vipers will kick off their season against the Arlington Renegades.

Currently, Scott is fielding calls from other XFL organizations. At the same time, he is keeping his options open. If a USFL team calls, and it’s the right fit, we could see Bryan return to the league. Scott could be starting material for multiple XFL and USFL franchises.

  1. It’s funny. I was reading some posts where people are knocking Bryan Scott even saying that he was the 4th best QB on the Vipers and was going to get cut. In fact he may be the best quarterback among both the USFL and XFL. When last year started he was in complete control of the Stars offense at a time where players were feeling their way. I don’t know him personally, so I don’t know how things were working in the locker room, but I do know that Rod Woodson was hired because of his name and not for his experience working with QBs. Being a fan of the USFL, I think it makes sense to sign with a place that recognizes what he brings to the table. Brett Hundley has more career interception than TDs, while Bryan Scott’s numbers are skewed in the right way. Again, I can’t speak to his leadership as he has shown little loyalty as he feels the pressure as he ages to make the NFL and leave his mark. I hope the USFL gets a great leader as he appeared to be the first 3 games of last season, while displaying the tools to be the best alt league QB.
