Although many XFL fans are waiting for news around the 2023 season schedule, the league is working as business as usual. Earlier today the league named 11-time Emmy Award winner Bill McCullough as Chief Content Officer.
Now, we have even more news to report. The XFL has revealed that they will hold a supplemental draft on January 1, 2023.
The media alert states that the draft pool consists of players who were previously ineligible to be drafted, as well as players who were not selected during the initial XFL Draft.
The timing of this is no coincidence. There are a good amount of USFL players that are currently on contract until the end of the year.
Players from the draft in November had until December 26th to sign a contract with the league. Needless to say, it should be interesting to see the free agent picks announced by the USFL later this week. But, with the supplemental draft around the corner, we could see the XFL attempt to dip into the USFL player pool once again.
