Due to Chris Jones’ upcoming surgery, it makes sense to see Niswander finally get a start in the NFL. He was spectacular for the DC Defenders in the XFL’s short 2020 season, averaging 46.8 yards per punt. With his talent at the punting and kicking positions, Niswander should be a fantastic addition to the Cowboys’ Special Teams squad.
Here at the XFL Newsroom, we couldn’t be happier to hear this news about Niswander. We’re always rooting for XFL players to make it to the NFL – especially guys like Hunter. A couple months ago we had the opportunity to interview him about his XFL experience, his football dreams, and where he wants to be. If you’d like to view that, you can do so here.
Who are some XFL players that you think deserve a shot on an NFL roster? Let us know down in the comments below, or join the conversation on Discord!
