Former Ole Miss LB DeMarquis Gates goes from XFL to NFL squad
Now that the XFL season has drawn to an end due to the coronavirus outbreak, several players are signing on with NFL teams for the upcoming 2020 season.
One player who is making a move to the NFL is former Ole Miss LB DeMarquis Gates, who played for the Houston Roughnecks.
Per NFL reporter Aaron Wilson, Gates is heading to the Minnesota Vikings for the upcoming 2020 campaign:

Gates had 32 tackles for the Roughnecks in 2020, including 2 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. He did all of that in 5 games. Gates also led the now-defunct AAF in tackles last spring.
How will he fare with the Vikings in 2020?
