Three former Tennessee Titans had standout performances in the Week 2 slate of games in the XFL.
The Tennessee Titans were once again represented well by some of their former players during Week 2 of the XFL season.
Here are some of the standouts from the games on Saturday and Sunday.
Rashad Ross, WR
Wide receiver Rashad Ross spent time on the Titans’ practice squad during the 2013 season and has since found a home in the XFL with the DC Defenders.
Ross posted an impressive game on Saturday in DC’s 27-0 win over the New York Guardians, catching four of his five targets for 95 yards, including a long reception of 40 yards. He led all Defenders receivers in yards, but failed to find pay dirt.
Ross’ standout game comes on the heels of a Week 1 performance that saw him total 52 yards and a touchdown through the air.
Gimel President, DE
St. Louis Battlehawks defensive end Gimel President was signed to a futures contract by the Titans in January of last year, but was eventually cut by the team prior to the 2019 season.
President had one of the better games of any Battlehawks defender in Week 2, as he totaled four combined tackles, the third most on the team, and one QB hit in St. Louis’ 28-24 loss to the Houston Roughnecks.
President bounced back after a shaky debut in Week 1 that saw him total just one tackle.
Ladarius Wiley, DB
Defensive back Ladarius Wiley had a tall order in topping what he did in Week 1 for the Los Angeles Wildcats when he finished with four combined tackles, one pick and one pass defensed, and while he didn’t exactly get it done, he was still effective.
Wiley, who played in four preseason games for the Titans in 2019 before getting cut, finished with four combined tackles in the Wildcats’ 25-18 loss to the Dallas Renegades.
