No, not that Tampa...  the Vipers, who SJ has been volunteer coaching for.  Apparently, no one was interested enough to make an offer he couldn't refuse...

Trestman really needed help with the Red Zone, SJ would be a great fit.  Big loss for the CFL, but good on him.

Familiarity with the HC, playing the game he loves in his hometown, a chance to make some cash in the now... Not a shocking development, especially when you factor in his age.

Could be a transitionary type of thing, too. Perhaps he sees himself as a coach down the road.

Did he actually sign with a team already? I herd that teams are eligible to sign him according to a waiver wire system. He doesn't get to choose who to sign with.

Also he will be able to play in the CFL when the XFL season is over and possibly not miss any games.

OK, I guess there is a waiver thingy, but I'm sure there is no tampering in a league where there is one owner...


Matthew Scianitti@TSNScianitti

Longtime 10K yard #CFL receiver SJ Green will sign with the XFL today. Green signs deal with XFL primary ownernship group and will enter the league waiver wire where his rights will be picked-up by a team at the top of the wire. SJ Green's deal will run through May 31 2020 #XFL


They'd be dumb not to let him go to the Vipers...

He might still come back to the CFL, the contract ends before June 1...

The XFL will be as fake as the WWE. Refs will be biased and let certain teams win. CFL refs will be perfect down there.

Wow have some respect.  That comment about CFL refs is uncalled for.

Hope not. When these leagues fold, lots of hardworking people lose their jobs.

If you actually tunes into the game(s), you'd know both the refs and the command centre are live mic'd....no chance for collusion.

When does XFL start up anyhow?  I want to look for it on TV and catch a few games.  I had fun watching the AAF while it lasted.

Started last Sunday.  TSN carries the games on Sunday afternoon/evening.
