Artis-Payne, Cameron (2)

CARD: Tops XFL 2020
ACQUIRED: 2020, Box Break


  • See Also Cameron Artis-Payne
  • Cameron played sparingly for the Panthers through the 2019 campaign.
  • He’d be selected by the Dallas Renegades of the XFL 2020.
  • Artis-Payne worked his way into the starter role rushing for 241 yards (41 carries), 2 TDs, as well as 23 receptions for 101 yards before the league folded.
  • In 2021, he signed with the Montreal Alouettes.
  • Rushed for 225 yards on 45 carries and a TD in 5 contests.


When Cameron was selected by the Renegades, I knew they were getting a great change of pace back. I was equally surprised that he was available to the XFL based on his previous light NFL experience.

  • Injuries played a part though in his time in Oakland and he’d be waived in 2017.

After I saw a few successes from Landry online through Facebook groups, with users who refused to disclose his address- I figured out the address myself and sent it out. I broke a cardinal rule and shared the address with a few friends before I got mine back. Thus they got theirs back signed and I got back… nothing. In the meantime, I got his certified off of Ebay, and waited about a year to resend to which I was able to get him on the three non-certified cards above.

Landry is named after former Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry. In a game that I was attending in Dallas, Houston Roughnecks defensive back Charles James (after the Roughnecks intercepted Landry Jones for the 3rd time in the first half) was caught on a live mic saying, “Get him the f*ck out of here!”
