LOOK: 3 Former Detroit Lions tryout for XFL

The AAF came and as I predicted, it did not last a single season.

In 2020, the XFL will take another swing at establishing themselves as a legit football league and tryouts for that league have already kicked off.

So far, there have been a pair of Summer Showcases (Houston and Dallas) and a trio of former Detroit Lions were on the invite only list to get a shot.

Those players are DT Khyri Thornton, and CBs Ian Wells and Sterling Moore.

Altogether, the XFL will hold eight Summer Showcase events.
