Other Notable UFL Free Agents

Justin Hall, WR, Houston Roughnecks: While the Roughnecks finished with a putrid 1-9 record and last in the UFL, Hall was a bright spot in Houston, catching 56 passes for 603 receiving yards and three touchdowns. At 5'8" and 189 pounds, the 25-year-old Hall could be a productive slot receiver at the next level in the right offense.

Kyahva Tezino, MLB, Birmingham Stallions: Last season, Birmingham's defense allowed just 259.5 yards and 18.0 points per game, in large part to the superb coverage of Tezino. Starting in all ten games, Tezino racked up 70 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and five pass breakups. The demand for a coverage linebacker in the NFL will always be there, giving Tezino instant value as a potential bargain-bin signing.

Carlos Davis, DT, Birmingham Stallions: One area that the Stallions' defense particularly stood out in was their run defense, which gave up a league-best 773 rush yards. Part of that success can be attributed to Davis, who was one of the UFL's best interior defenders, with 23 tackles, four tackles for loss, and seven sacks.

Jonathan Adams, WR, Memphis Showboats: Alongside fellow receiver Daewood Davis, Adams anchored a Memphis passing attack that relied heavily on the duo. For his part, Adams caught 33 catches for 442 receiving yards and one touchdown, while playing second fiddle to Davis (41 catches, 446 yards, five touchdowns).

Jace Sternberger, TE, Birmingham Stallions: Sternberger, a former third-round pick by Green Bay in 2018, made the All-USFL Team after a stellar debut season in the UFL. With Martinez at the helm, Sternberger caught 25 passes for 454 receiving yards and four touchdowns, leading all tight ends. Sternberger was also among the league's top blocking tight ends, and looks to follow Seattle's Sal Cannella as the second UFL tight end to sign with an NFL team.

Matthew Colburn II, RB, Michigan Panthers: Among the UFL's top-five rushing leaderboard for running backs, Colburn II had the second-fewest carries, with just 90 on the season. Still, the Panthers' star back was great, collecting 401 rushing yards, four touchdowns, and 4.5 yards per carry, while averaging the fourth-most rushing yards per game, at 50.1.
