XFL Commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck mentioned the XFL would potentially hold a supplemental draft in November to cover college players and players cut from NFL teams.
The supplemental draft could also be used to fill the void left by players choosing not to sign with the XFL after hearing about the $55,000 per season they would receive from the upstart league.
He talked about how the XFL gave the impression of a tiered salary system, yet that changed four days before the XFL draft. The change in salary structure was a turn off for some players who chose after the XFL draft to not participate in the 2020 season.
