Featured Players in the USFL

Scooby Rite ILB – Stallions

Wright has experience with three NFL teams in addition to the AAF and XFL. He was the best player in college football in 2014, with 14 sacks, six forced failures, 163 tackles, and 29 tackles for an Arizona loss. In 2015, he played only three matches due to injury.

WR Jeff Badett – Panthers

Buddy has spent time with Washington, Atlanta and Las Vegas over the past two seasons. In 2020, he also made a brief appearance in the XFL. During his tenure in Kentucky and Oklahoma, the 6-footer had a good college career, making 108 catches during 10 touchdowns. Badett was a major danger in college, averaging 16.5 yards per catch and 21.6 yards per catch in 2016.

QB Brian Scott – Stars

The NFL is the perfect league quarterback for a quarterback like Scott, who may have hit his first big shot in the NFL. After an impressive professional day at USC, Scott had a tryout with The Chiefs in 2018. His Spring League accomplishments earned him a try-out with the Indianapolis Colts in February 2021. Scott was a big fish in a small college pond, with 77 touchdowns and only 22 interceptions for a college Occidental in California.

QB Jordan Ta’amu – Bandits

In 2019, Ta’amu spent three weeks with the Houston Texans before joining the BattleHawks of the XFL. After that, he spent stints in Kansas City and Detroit, as well as stints with Washington and Carolina. In college, Ta’amu had a successful year after taking over as Patterson, who was injured during his final year at Ole Miss. Ta’amu passed 3,918 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions as the team’s starter in 2018. Among the SEC quarterbacks, only Tua Tagovailoa threw for more yards this season.

QB Shea Patterson – Panthers

After stints with the Chiefs, BC Lions and Montreal Alouettes, former Ole Miss and Michigan quarterback joins the Panthers. Patterson, the top pick in the USFL Draft, passed 68 touchdowns and 27 interceptions during his college career.

Note rules for the USFL

The original USFL included a number of game-changing rules that were eventually added to the NFL. Instant restart and coach challenges were two of the NFL rules that were adopted by the NFL, and are still in use today. The new USFL will also have a number of rules that distinguish it from the NFL. Here are the most important rule changes the USFL will implement this spring.

3 attempt points

Teams in the USFL will have the option to go for 1, 2, or 3 points after scoring a touchdown. Extra points are kicked from the 15-yard line, much like the NFL. From the 2-yard line, you’ll be having a two-point conversation. A three-point attempt, which the NFL currently lacks, will be attempted from the 10-yard line. The team will be awarded three points if they score in the play, which means they can score up to nine points after scoring any touchdown.

kick on the alternate side

While side kicks will still be available, the USFL will also provide a second option for teams looking to keep the ball after touchdown. From the 33-yard line, teams can attempt to turn one game of 4 and 12. They’ll keep the ball if they can get 12 yards. If they fail, the opposing team will seize the ball. During the Pro Bowl, the NFL experimented with a similar concept, in which teams had a chance to retain possession if they converted in game 4 and 15 from the 25-yard line.

stop the clock

Unlike in the NFL, during the last two minutes of the second and fourth quarters, the clock will stop after the first touchdown. The league claims that this will lead to more offensive games at the end of each half.

over time

USFL overtime would be the best of the three scoring format, with each attack starting from their opponent’s 2-yard line. If the two teams are still tied after three attempts, then extra time will be played for sudden death.
