New York Guardians Roster (XFL Football)

The Guardians are the second XFL franchise to grace the Big Apple

When Vince McMahon announced two years ago that he was relaunching the XFL in 2020, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that New York City would have a team. After all, the New York/New Jersey Hitmen were considered the first XFL's charter franchise back in 2001, Madison Square Garden is the de-facto home for McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment, and McMahon has had other business interests in the city through the years. Sure enough, New York will indeed be home to yet another XFL team. Starting next weekend, the Guardians will take up residence at MetLife Stadium with Kevin Gilbride as their head coach.

 

Gilbride is well known to New York football fans. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the NFL's New York Giants from 2004-13. And during his tenure, he called the plays for the Giants teams that won Super Bowls XLII and XLVI, all while molding Eli Manning into the future Hall of Famer that he is today. With the Guardians, Gilbride will have the chance to mentor another group of signal-callers who can benefit from his guidance. Former Penn State standout Matt McGloin takes his talents to the XFL after bouncing around a few NFL teams from 2013 to '18. He'll also have former Alliance of American Football (AAF) standout Luis Perez (Birmingham Iron) available to him as well.

 

McGloin was assigned to the Guardians during the XFL's pre-draft process. Perez was originally assigned to the Los Angeles Wildcats but was traded to New York at the conclusion of training camp. So now these players will work together, along with the talent acquired in October's XFL draft, in order to bring winning football back to NYC.
