The XFL has names for its eight teams, now it needs players.

The league, which begins play in February, revealed team logos and names Wednesday. The teams are the Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, DC Defenders, Dallas Renegades, Houston Roughnecks, St. Louis BattleHawks, Seattle Dragons and Tampa Bay Vipers.

Commissioner Oliver Luck said the league will soon announce additional signings from the first round of commissioner invitations that were extended earlier this month. 

The XFL recently signed former Oklahoma and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones as its first player.

Luck said the draft will be in October. Playing rules are still being tweaked after the league held a session in California with coaches, Fox and ESPN last month.

The XFL announced in 2017 that it was coming back after it went one season in 2001 before shutting down.
