XFL quarterback Quinton Flowers leaves team after taking issue with his playing time
The return of the XFL has been entertaining in a number of ways and that’s before you even get to the product on the football field.
A coordinator was fired after the first week of the season and now it appears a quarterback has quit his team after the third week of the season.
Tampa Vipers quarterback Quinton Flowers has left the team according to head coach Marc Trestman. This news comes after Flowers expressed issues with his lack of playing time.
“Q has left for personal reasons and I look forward to him coming back as soon as possible,” Trestman said this week during a press conference. “We wish him well in terms of what he has to get accomplished but as I told the team today, we want him back as soon as we can get him back, but we are going to leave that up to him.”
When asked a follow-up question regarding Flower’s status, Trestman didn’t have much in terms of a firm answer on the QB’s status with the team.
“It’s day-to-day with Q and we are going to respect that here and we will be in contact with him and hope he comes back soon,” the coach noted.
If the XFL can keep the drama off the field going and bring an exciting brand of football on it, the league may just stick around for Year 2.
