XFL unveils team names and logos

These 8 XFL teams will be kicking off the league's 2020 season

In 2002, a Canadian Football League team called the Ottawa Renegades entered the league and they too share a similar looking logo of a cowboy with a bandana, although this character faces the left.

The XFL on Wednesday revealed the team names for each of its eight franchises ahead of its rebooted first season, which begins in February. Luring all who challenge them into the jaws of defeat.

The Roughnecks will play at TDECU Stadium with five regular-season home games.

By 3 p.m. CDT Aug. 31, National Football League teams will have to release 1,184 players on their preseason rosters to reach the regular-season limit.

The XFL, a professional football league that lasted for one year in 2001, announced the league's rebirth in December. The owner, Vince McMahon, who is also the chairman for the WWE, sold hundreds of millions of dollars in WWE stock to bankroll the XFL.

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.

The XFL draft is expected to be held sometime in October, and full rosters will be announced sometime after that.

The XFL will use a format similar to penalty shootouts in soccer. Their home games will take place at CenturyLink Field.

Great team name but a lackluster logo, although it does get some bonus points for being somewhat of a throwback to the old Houston Oilers of the NFL. Ready to strike February 2020: The Tampa Bay Vipers.
