Los Angeles Wildcats Roster (XFL Football)

This is the second Los Angeles franchise in XFL history

What seemed like a football wasteland just a few years ago, Los Angeles is a bustling football market once again. The NFL's Rams and Chargers returned to the city in 2016 and will share a brand new stadium starting in 2020. USC and UCLA kept LA football relevant during the '90s and 2000s and rule the college market today. Other teams that have graced the City of Angels were the Los Angeles Express (USFL, 1983-85), Los Angeles Avengers (Arena Football League, 2000-08), and Los Angeles Kiss (AFL, 2014-16).

 

The XFL will make its return to the market this year. When XFL 1.0 completed its lone season in 2001, the Los Angeles Xtreme (led by veteran NFL quarterback Tommy Maddox) won the XFL Championship. It was LA's first pro football title since the Los Angeles Raiders won Super Bowl XVIII in 1984. When XFL 2.0 kicks off on Feb. 8, the Los Angeles Wildcats will make their debut as the eighth professional franchise to call the city home.

 

The Wildcats will be coached by Winston Moss, who spent over 30 years in the NFL as both a linebacker and defensive coordinator. He's the only defensive-minded head coach in the relaunched XFL, and he'll be tasked with competing against some of the top offensive minds in the game today. While defense is Moss' specialty, he has plenty of offensive talent to work with. Leading the attack will be former NFL journeyman QB Josh Johnson, and wide receiver Nelson Spruce who last played in the Alliance of American Football (San Diego Fleet). The Wildcats also collected talent in October's 2020 XFL Draft.
