Former NFL offensive lineman Charles Spencer and Kevin Sampson
have agreed to contract terms with Orlando of the newly formed United Football
League, their agent, Joe Linta, told Scout.com.
Spencer, 27, who is expected to play left tackle for Orlando, was originally selected by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2006 draft, won a starting job as a rookie, but suffered a serious knee/leg injury which put him on injured reserve after just two games. Spencer spent time with the Carolina Panthers during the off season of 2008 and was on the Jacksonville Jaguars active roster for several weeks, but he's only played in just two games as a professional.
Sampson, 28, was originally selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the seventh round of the 2004 draft, is expected to play right tackle for Orlando. Sampson started seven games for the Chiefs over his three years with the team, but he was out of the league last season. During the 2007 season, Sampson spent time on the Carolina Panthers practice squad and also spent time on the Washington Redskins active roster for a brief time.
