The NFL Draft wraps up on a Saturday in late April.
The XFL Championship is the next afternoon.
On that Monday, many XFL players will wind up with NFL teams.
Beginning April 27, the Texans and the other 31 teams in the League can "request permission to visit with, try out, or sign any player who was under contract to the XFL at the conclusion of the XFL season". With nine regular season games remaining, as well as two rounds of playoff contests, the XFL is giving hundreds of players the chance to play football and put their talents on display. That extra game film for NFL front offices will come in handy in constructing a 90-man roster, and ultimately a 53-man roster come September.
Each of the eight XFL squads has at least one former Houston Texan on its roster, and there are more than 20 XFLers who at one time or another were with the Texans organization.
