The Seattle Dragons were assigned another quarterback by the XFL on Friday, getting former Marshall star Chase Litton.
The Dragons had three quarterbacks on their roster before the addition of Litton: Brandon Silvers, who was assigned to the Dragons by the league before the XFL draft last month; Joe Callahan, who saw action with the Green Bay Packers in 2017 and former Seahawk B.J. Daniels, who were taken in the open portion of the league’s draft.
Litton threw for 8,332 yards at Marshall before leaving school after his junior season in 2017 to enter the NFL draft. He was undrafted the next spring, but spent time on Kansas City’s practice squad last year and time on Jacksonville’s practice squad this season.
The league held a supplemental draft Friday and Seattle chose receiver Tyre Brady, who was Litton’s teammate at Marshall; safety Godwin Igwebuike, who spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the San Francisco 49ers in 2018 and defensive tackle Anthony Moten, who played for the University of Miami.
The 71-man roster is expected to be finalized Tuesday in preparation for the Dec. 5 start of minicamp.
