In latest reboot, XFL places teams in three new cities for 2023 – including Las Vegas
Five cities from the 2020 version of the XFL will once again have teams in the 2023 reboot, as will Las Vegas, Orlando, Florida, and San Antonio. The XFL has revealed the home venues for all of the teams, and which of its previously announced head coaches will be based in which cities. But it has not yet announced team names or logos. "We have been working on cool, new logos and innovative uniforms, that match the dynamic and innovative vision of our league," XFL owner and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said in a statement.

Terry McLaurin got paid. AJ Brown got paid. DK Metcalf got paid. Now Deebo Samuel is joining them.
The final marquee domino from the wide receiver class of 2019 just fell with Samuel agreeing to a three-year extension with the 49ers worth $73.6 million, per Ian Rapoport.
It's a big-time deal that will pay Samuel more than $24 million per year.

49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: 'Not too much of a shocker' Trey Lance replaced Jimmy Garoppolo
Kyle Juszczyk spoke with media members on Tuesday and indicated those in the locker room knew Trey Lance was the offense's new CEO some time ago.Lance served as the team's QB1 throughout spring workouts and mandatory minicamp as Garoppolo recovered from March shoulder surgery. Last month, San Francisco fullback Kyle Juszczyk told reporters he could "only say positive things" about the 22-year-old signal-caller who had become "a very natural leader" in Garoppolo's absence. As Rohan Chakravarthi noted for 49ers WebZone, Juszczyk spoke with media members on Tuesday and indicated those in the locker room knew Lance was the offense's new CEO some time ago.
However, David Lombardi said otherwise, reporting the guaranteed money could be between $40 and $50 million.
Whichever figure it comes out to be, Samuel is going to a nice chunk of change before his contract ends when he's 29 years old. Then he'll be able to negotiate another potentially lucrative contract.
Samuel got just slightly more than Metcalf got with the Seahawks last week. The Seattle receiver signed a three-year contract worth $72 million to stay put. That deal set up Samuel to get paid at least as much.
Now the receiver can get back to practice. He has been sitting out training camp so far while waiting for his contract details to be worked out.
The 49ers drafted Samuel in the second round in 2019. He showed real promise in his first two seasons but truly broke out in 2021 with 1,405 yards and six touchdowns as a receiver and 365 yards and eight touchdowns as a rusher. That kind of production set him up for a huge payday this year.
His unique skillset allowed San Francisco to utilize him in various and unpredictable ways around the field. Signing him to an extension ensures he'll be there to help quarterback Trey Lance lead the way in 2022.
Deebo Samuel denies frustration with “wide-back” role .
Deebo Samuel scrubbed all references to the 49ers from his social media this offseason, and he requested the team trade him. All’s well that ends well. The All-Pro receiver talked to the media for the first time since February and two days after signing a three-year, $71.55 million extension. He declined to provide any insight.
