List of former Titans on XFL rosters in 2023

The XFL is rebooting the league in 2023, and it recently revealed the 51-man rosters of all eight teams, which have several former Tennessee Titans players sprinkled throughout.

The eight teams in the league this year are the St. Louis Battlehawks, Seattle Sea Dragons, San Antonio Brahmas, Arlington Renegades, DC Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, Vegas Vipers and Orlando Guardians.

On top of the former Titans players participating in the league this year, a former Titans coach is also the head coach of one of the teams, with ex-linebackers coach Jim Haslett running the Seattle squad.

We’ve already covered two of the more notable former Titans in the XFL in wide receiver Josh Gordon, who is with the Sea Dragons, and outside linebacker Vic Beasley, who is on Vegas’ roster.

But there are many more former Tennessee players on all eight rosters, with some names more obscure than others. Good luck remembering some of these guys.

Note: check out the full rosters here.
