After what has been a quiet offseason so far for New Orleans, the team finally makes a couple of moves.
P Matt White
Matt White returning to the New Orleans Breakers for another season is excellent news. He has consistently been one of the top punters in the USFL for the past two years.
In 2022, Matt White punted 48 times, totaling 2,123 yards. He averaged 44.2 YPP, and sent 15 (31.5%) inside opponents 20 yard lines.
White built upon his successful 2022 campaign with an impressive showing this year. Matt sent 30 punts for a total of 1,347 yards, averaging 44.9 YPP. 11 of those (36.7%) were inside opponents 20 yard lines, with only five (16.7%) resulting in touchbacks.
Matt White looks to be down with an ankle injury to his plant foot.
Bernard joined the team in 2022, and has been with New Orleans ever since. Bernard has started all 20 regular season games for the Breakers since the USFL returned.
With Matt Coghlin, Matt White, and Turner Bernard all under contract for the 2024 USFL season, the New Orleans Breakers are set to see more excellent special teams play next year.
GM Ryan Jones has been quiet in free agency so far. The Breakers have only signed OL Sidney Wells. While they re-activated Kai Absheer a few days ago, he was quickly released.
