DB DeJuan Neal has agreed to terms with the Commanders per his agent @seanstellato. Quite a journey for Neal: from Shepherd to the XFL and USFL; now with Washington.

DeJuan Neal battled injuries all year long, but when he was on the field, he performed quite well for Mike Riley’s Generals. Neal finished with sixteen tackles on the season.
Neal joins Christian Sam as the only two USFL players to be signed by NFL teams so far. But, plenty are earning workouts and tryouts with NFL organizations, so expect more news to arise soon. You can stay up to date on all the USFL players moving to the NFL with our official tracker.
