Former Penn State Football Player Steven Gonzalez Signs XFL Letter Of Intent

Former Penn State football offensive lineman Steven Gonzalez signed a letter of intent with the XFL on Thursday, which means he intends to play in the league if not picked up by an NFL team.

Gonzalez announced the move via Twitter, saying he’s “grateful & blessed for this opportunity.”

Gonzalez spent fives seasons with the Nittany Lions and helped lead the Nittany Lions to a top-five rushing attack in the Big Ten in two of those years. After his sophomore season, Gonzalez was awarded first-team All-Big Ten honors by Pro Football Focus.

He was also a second-team All-Big Ten honoree during his senior year by the conference’s coaches, media, and the Associated Press.

Gonzalez had a brief career in the NFL. After going undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft, he appeared shortly on the rosters of both the Arizona Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills.

The XFL was acquired by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in 2020 and is set to return next year, seemingly with some familiar faces on the field for Penn State fans. The season begins on February 18, 2023.
