It never would have occurred to Jim Barker that on the day he began coaching in a league meant to combine the antics of professional wrestling with football, he would meet a man he'd later hire as his own replacement. It was about 9:30 p.m., and Barker had just finished one of his first meetings as offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Xtreme of the XFL, a league started by World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon. Barker walked out of the meeting room and was immediately greeted by Scott Milanovich, a former Maryland star, and Tommy Maddox.

The Canadian Football League quickly threw up a stop sign for any potential overtures to former Ravens star running back Ray Rice. Rice won't be playing north of the border. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon issued a statement saying the league will honor the NFL's indefinite suspension of Rice, whose $35 million contract was terminated Monday by the Ravens after an ugly video surfaced of him punching Janay Palmer in a casino elevator. CFL teams were informed that Rice can't be signed to a contract or added to a negotiation list.
