Yesterday, it was announced that the Las Vegas Raiders signed Isaiah Zuber. Zuber was a WR for the Houston Gamblers in 2022, being a major target for both Clayton Thorson and Kenji Bahar.

Isaiah Zuber finished the USFL season with 325 receiving yards, and five touchdowns. He was electrifying week in and week out, making plays for Houston all year long.
The @Raiders just picked up an absolute baller in @Zuber_7More. He was sensational for the @USFLGamblers this year. Fantastic signing, could develop into a solid target for Derek Carr. #USFL pic.twitter.com/D9JCVH1LTR

Zuber did spend time with the New England Patriots in 2020, so this isn’t his first experience with an NFL organization. That being said, the USFL gave him another opportunity to shine, and he took full advantage of it.
.@Zuber_7More makes the catch to give the @USFLGamblers the lead! 🔥

Despite Houston’s struggles to win games during the regular season, Zuber was elite from start to finish. Without a doubt, he was one of the USFL’s best receivers, and now has a chance to provide an NFL team with his assets.
