You can still get a dose of Cowboy football in March.

Football never ends in America.

Spring football leagues XFL and USFL merged this year to form the United Football League (UFL), the premier spring football league that will kick off March 30. With training camp for the eight-team league starting Feb. 24 in Arlington, the first part of roster structuring finished with a pair of former Cowboys looking to be playing this spring.

Former Oklahoma State defensive ends Jordan Brailford and Mike Scott were selected in the first phase of the UFL’s player dispersal process on Jan. 5. During the phase, teams protected 42 players from its 2023 roster and could also select up to 20 players from rosters of teams that were not part of the merger coming from the XFL or USFL.

The second phase of the player dispersal process happened Monday, starting free agency for the league on Tuesday. Teams must have their 75-player rosters locked by Feb. 14. Players on rosters on that date will go to training camp.

Brailford is listed as an outside linebacker for the Memphis Showboats, which come from the USFL. He played for the USFL’s New Orleans Breakers last year in his first season of spring football, recording 20 tackles and two sacks in eight games. After being First Team All-Big 12 in 2018, Brailford was a pick away from being Mr. Irrelevant in the 2019 NFL Draft when Washington took him with the 253rd overall pick in the seventh round. He had stops in Washington, Minnesota and Atlanta during his four-year NFL career.

Scott will stay with the San Antonio Brahmas, who he played for last season in the XFL alongside his twin brother, Delontae. He’s also played for the Austin Generals of The Spring League in 2021 and the USFL’s Tampa Bay Bandits in 2022 since leaving OSU in 2019.

With free agency starting Tuesday, other former OSU players could also land on rosters by the deadline, including Brock Martin, who pleaded his case on X.

Since a stellar six-season career at OSU, Martin has yet to find footing in the professional ranks. The Las Vegas Raiders waived him last offseason, prompting his spring football league career in the XFL, playing for the Orlando Guardians last season.
