Why are these XFL players not signed by NFL teams already?

Cam Phillips is the best player in the XFL that is not on a team at this point. He needs to be on a roster soon.

The XFL season is over, and so far there have been 14 players from the XFL signed to the NFL, but we are shocked these players still have not been called and signed. Check out these studs below and hopefully we will hear something before the NFL Draft. It is hard with the coronavirus stopping these guys to travel to a facility but at the end of the day, they all have the talent to play at the next level.

  1. Cam Phillips, WR, Houston Roughnecks – The former XFL standout deserves to be on an NFL roster right now. He led the XFL with 455 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. He has been productive everywhere he went in his career, and even shined in the preseason with the Buffalo Bills. He is the best player out there and needs to be on a roster already.
  2. Storm Norton, OT, Los Angeles Wildcats – Right now offensive lineman are hard to find and Norton is a huge man with great skills. He was one of the best offensive lineman in the XFL. The 6070, 317 pound tackle for the Wildcats needs to receive a call, he is definitely worthy of an NFL roster, especially being just 25 years old.
  3. Derron Smith, S, Dallas Renegades – Smith was a 2015 NFL Draft pick of the Bengals and while he has bounced around the NFL and even played in the AAF, he had a solid season with the Renegades. Smith had 16 tackles and one interceptions. The Vikings have two safeties on their roster, they can easily use him at this point.
  4. Jamar Summers, CB, New York Guardians – Summers is one of the best shutdown corners in the XFL. He is not only a solid player, he has NFL experience as well. He dominated the AAF and has spent time with the Steelers and the Lions in the past.
  5. Dan Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Vipers – The former Jackson State wide out was a dog in the XFL. He hauled in 23 receptions for 338 yards and scored one touchdown. When things started getting ugly in Tampa they looked for Williams, and it seems like Williams always came through.
  6. Matt Jones, RB, St. Louis Battlehawks – The 27 year old back was a former Washington Redskins back who rushed for 950 yards in two years for them back in 15 and 16. He finished second in the XFL this year with 314 yards and ran super hard.
  7. Martez Ivey, OT, Tampa Bay Vipers – Yes, I chose another offensive lineman because they are hard to find. Ivey was considered a top offensive lineman in the NFL Draft, and slipped like crazy. He helped the Vipers running attack that led the XFL. Ivey was one of the best offensive lineman in the XFL.
  8. Marquette King, P, St. Louis BattleHawks – He was a second team All-Pro in the NFL back in 2016. You cannot tell me he is not better than the Falcons punters. They have two and King is better than both. He led the XFL with 45.7 yards per punt which would have been top 10 in the NFL last season.
  9. Matthew McCrane, K, New York Guardians – The NFL needs consistent kickers and McCrane was that in the XFL. McCrane was 8/8 in the XFL and three for three from 40-49 yards and 2/2 from 50 plus hitting a 53 yarder. He has an NFL leg.
  10. Nelson Spruce, WR, Los Angeles Wildcats – He was probably the best wide receiver in the XFL but he ended up injured. Both he and Tre McBride did a great job in the NFL, both should hear from the NFL, but who knows what is going to happen with this virus.
