DC Brawlers

The newly announced DC Brawlers haven't signed any athletes to date, but many of the world's fittest athletes remain unsigned after recent combine events.

One athlete who apparently won't be joining the NPFL will be three-time CrossFit Games champion Rich Froning, who allegedly said that he won't be associated with the fitness league. Interested fans have speculated that a handful of other top athletes closely associated with CrossFit HQ are unlikely to sign with the NPFL.
