The XFL is looking to pick off whatever remains of the carcass from the short-lived and defunct AAF.

The Express-News reports the XFL is seeking to purchase some of the AAF's equipment, which is currently stored in a warehouse in San Antonio.

Per the report:

Among the trove of treasures slated to be sold are 1,000 Riddell, Schutt and Vicis helmets, 300 shoulder pads, 58 metal lockets, tackling dummies and shields, and even hundreds of rolls of athletic tape.

A San Antonio bankruptcy trustee last week filed court papers asking a judge to approve the sale of some of the AAF's assets to XFL parent company Alpha Entertainment for $375,000. Alpha has already paid a $37,500 deposit.

The XFL, which is headed up by WWE boss Vince McMahon, is scheduled to kick off in 2020.

Bankruptcy trustee Randolph Osherow, who filed the court papers to sell the AAF assets, told the Express-News he may still get other offers for the property.

"We always hope to get higher offers," Osherow said. "The problem is, it's a very small market (of buyers). This is all professional football gear. So it's probably only going to be sold to someone in the professional football business.
