The UFL was pretty much off my radar until the first week of June when Bobby Sippio tried out for the league. Two weeks later, the draft was held and five former Kansas City Chiefs were selected by a UFL franchise including:
Make that six players in the UFL now (and if there's one I'm missing I'm sure you will let me know in the comments). Kevin Sampson, offensive tackle from 2004-06, agreed to terms with the Orlanda franchise (the same franchise that called dibs on Michael Vick) according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com.
Sampson stated seven games for the Chiefs in his three years. He was out of the NFL last year but spent part of 2007 on the Panthers practice squad and Redskins active roster. He's expected to play right tackle with Orlando.
No word yet on the two most coveted names on the UFL roster: Casey Printers and Michael Vick.
