A day after getting a Major League Soccer expansion franchise, St. Louis learned the name of its already awarded XFL expansion team. Unsure. There's not a lot of information from the league about these logos at this time.

Each team will have 40-man rosters and players signed to contracts with salaries averaging around $75,000 Dollars.

XFL CEO Oliver Luck, Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd and ESPN's Laura Rutledge had a helping hand in revealing the team names.

The XFL announced in February that former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and Stanford assistant Pep Hamilton will be D.C.'s head coach.

Brown files new grievance over helmet
Brown donned a Schutt Vengeance Z10 LTD, which is among the NFL's 34 approved helmets, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network . I'm on every channel! "The feet feeling a lot better", Brown tells a "Hard Knocks" producer earlier in the week.

The XFL unveiled the team names and logos for its eight franchises on Wednesday. Cold-blooded by nature. Luring all who challenge them into the jaws of defeat.

"The XFL is about football and fun, and our team identities are meant to signify just that", said XFL President and COO, Jeffrey Pollack.

The rebooted league, which had an ill-fated attempt that lasted just one season in 2001, will begin play next February on the weekend following Super Bowl LIV. "Now it's up to our fans and players to help write the story". It's a 10-week regular season with four teams advancing to the playoffs on April 18-19, and the championship game scheduled for April 26.

The spring league plans to fill some of the roster spots on those teams with players released by the NFL at the end of the month, although it already has announced on August 15 the signing of its first player - former Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback and Oklahoma star Landry Jones. We'll have to wait for the XFL's draft in October to find out more.
