Tampa Bay Vipers: In the shadows, they wait.

Dallas' new XFL team name and logo was announced today. Cold-blooded by nature. Luring all who challenge them into the jaws of defeat. With all eight teams and their locations set, along with several players already garnering interest, the only question remaining was simple: what are the names of the teams going to be? The Roughnecks will play their home games at TDECU Stadium.

The league features eight teams from eight cities: Dallas, Washington D.C., Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, St. Louis and Tampa. The original league played one season, in 2001, before folding.

The Vince McMahon-backed football league is set to begin on February 8, the weekend after the Super Bowl.

Earlier this month, former University of Oklahoma and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones became the first player to sign with the reimagined XFL. The deal gives both Fox and ESPN even more pro football and something to fill the weekend schedule during the NFL's long offseason, while it gives ABC pro football for the first time since it lost "Monday Night Football" after the 2005 season.

Plans include a 25-second clock between plays - which is 15 seconds less than the National Football League, multiple forward passes as long as the players remain behind the line of scrimmage and a creative solution for overtime.

The XFL will use a format similar to penalty shootouts in soccer. The team will call CenturyLink Field home.
