Today’s the big day many have been waiting for; the USFL Draft is finally here. Last week we reported that the league did not intend to release the full draft pool, leaving many to rely on players that had announced their contract signing via social media.
One big name that’s been rumored to be in discussions with the USFL is former St. Louis BattleHawks quarterback Jordan Ta’Amu. Since the XFL folded, Ta’Amu has been picked up by a handful of NFL teams, but never securing a fulltime spot. There’s a lot of XFL fans hoping to see him make a return to the league in 2023, but it looks like they may be out of luck.
It’s now been confirmed that Jordan Ta’Amu has signed a contract with the USFL and will be apart of the upcoming draft.
Furthermore, the league announced earlier that the first eight picks will be in Birmingham for the event.
