Ten Players We Want to See in the New XFL

The XFL is set to return in 2020.

The league is slated to kick off in 2020 and will consist of eight teams, 40-man rosters, and 10 weeks of regular season play, leading to two semifinals and a championship game.

The XFL was founded as a joint venture between NBC and the WWE and was comprised of eight teams.

McMahon's Alpha Entertainment company has also recently registered "UrFL" and "URFL" both also for use in "professional football games", possibly an alternate name being considered?

"When I say the quality of human being is very important, and just as important as the quality of player, what I mean by that is, you want someone who doesn't have any criminality whatsoever associated with them", McMahon said.

McMahon also fielded questions about whether or not President Donald Trump would be supportive of the league and if this was a reaction to the national anthem protests that have occurred during this NFL season.

According to PWInsider (h/t WrestlingInc.com's Joshua Gagnon), McMahon wants to take his time in order to have a "proper foundation" in place.

"Quite frankly, we're going to give the game of football back to the fans", McMahon said.

McMahon announced the return of the much-maligned league that spawned He Hate Me and flamed out in 2001 after one wild season.

Buckingham Palace announced the engagement Monday morning of Princess Eugenie , and her long-term boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank . Voicing her "total joy", Sarah said on Twitter: "The river flows well to its destiny because of the guidance of a solid rock".

If the XFL overlooks Manziel's past, let's be honest: Manziel would be a great get for the new football league. This time around, McMahon said player safety will be a priority. "As we move towards kickoff, we look forward to listening and implementing innovative ideas from players, coaches, medical experts, technology executives, the media and most importantly football fans".

This will have nothing to do with politics or social issues.

"To me the landscape has changed in so many different ways", McMahon said. But several players from the league-like Smart and quarterback and XFL MVP Tommy Maddox-did have NFL careers after the XFL folded.

"Democrat, Republican, Independent, I don't care, and no one should", said McMahon. Kaepernick has been unsigned by the National Football League ever since he became a free agent after the 2016 season.

McMahon stopped short of naming potential markets for XFL teams, saying it was too early to name potential markets. He also filed for trademarks related to the league. "It's still football. But it's professional football reimagined".

That means popular names such as Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy victor, won't be given priority just because they are marketable.

There are no distribution contracts lined up, McMahon said, though he pledged XFL games will be available to stream on "big screens, mobile devices and everything in between".
