St. Louis BattleHawks Roster (XFL Football)

This will be the first pro football franchise in the city since the NFL's Rams returned to Los Angeles

St. Louis has had an interesting relationship with pro football. In 1960 the NFL's Chicago Cardinals moved to the Gateway to the West, where they stayed until 1987. After just three playoff appearances (1974, '75, '82) during those 28 seasons, the team moved west again, where they have been known as the Arizona Cardinals since 1988. St. Louis wouldn't see the NFL again until 1995 when the Los Angeles Rams came to town. From 1995 until 2015, the franchise enjoyed some of its greatest success.

 

The Rams would make five playoff appearances in six seasons (1999, 2000, '01, '03, '04), win three NFC West titles (1999, 2001, '03), two NFC Championships (1999, 2001), and, of course, there was the victory in Super Bowl XXXIV that put the "Greatest Show on Turf" on the map. The Rams posted just one winning season (2006) between 2005 and 2015, but the fans remained fiercely loyal. So you can't exactly blame them for the anger that they've felt since the Rams returned to the West Coast nearly four years ago, leaving the Dome at America's Center largely quiet.

 

Next week, the XFL will bring football back to St. Louis as the St. Louis BattleHawks look to create a new legacy of pro football in the city. Former NFL tight end and longtime Cincinnati Bengals assistant coach Jonathan Hayes will be tasked with this endeavor. Hayes worked side-by-side with Marvin Lewis in Cincy for 16 years and will put that experience to use. His roster will be headlined by former Ole Miss quarterback Jordan Ta'amu, who threw for 5,600 yards and 30 touchdowns from 2017-18 and features several other notable names as well.
