The Las Vegas Raiders are signing another USFL standout, Ike Brown. Brown was a cornerback for the New Orleans Breakers in 2022, making big time plays week in and week out.

During the season, Brown was a centerpiece for Larry Fedora’s defense. One of his major highlights came in week six, when he took Vad Lee’s errant pass for a 98 yard pick six.

Ike finished the USFL’s season with over 20 tackles and two interceptions. On top of that, Brown did not allow one touchdown to be scored the entire year. He showcased his exceptional talents in the USFL, and now gets a chance to pursue his NFL dreams with the Las Vegas Raiders.
