The Familiar Faces Of The XFL

Sammie Coates — Houston Roughnecks

Between his sophomore and junior seasons at Auburn, Sammie Coates hauled in 76 passes for nearly 2,000 yards and 11 touchdowns. His production and talent was enough to convince the Pittsburgh Steelers to select him with the 87th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. And after a solid second year in which Coates hauled in 21 passes for 435 yards, it appeared as if Coates was destined for a decent career. Instead, the former Tiger caught just seven passes over the next two years. Now with the Roughnecks, Coates will look to prove he can still make a difference.
