Ex-Rider Darnell Sankey released from XFL Contract



Darnell Sankey could be heading back to the Canadian Football League (CFL).

According to TSN’s Farhan Lalji, the linebacker was released from his XFL contract with the Arlington Renegades.


It was reported that he will wait until the midpoint of the National Football League preseason before signing a contract with a CFL team. It’s also reported that two teams have already made the former all-star an offer.

Last season, Sankey set a new franchise record for tackles in a single season (120).

Before joining the Roughriders, the San Jose, California product spent a season in Calgary and led the league in tackles in 2021 (98).

The Renegades claimed the XFL Championship this past season.
