Following Former Eagles in the USFL: Week 3

We are now three weeks into the USFL season. Week 1 showed some promise with former Eagles players, and Week 2 was mostly the same players getting the same production they had the previous week. Week 3 saw some good progress for quite a few former Birds.

A reminder that a total of 14 players in the league have spent at least some time on the Eagles 53-man roster or training camp roster.

Here's a look at the former Eagles who appeared in this weekend's boxscores:

New Jersey Generals
  • QB Luis Perez: 8/15, 75 passing yards,

  • DT Destiny Vaeao: N/A

  • CB De'Vante Bausby: 3 tackles (1 for loss), 2 passes defended

  • S Trae Elston: 2 tackles

Michigan Panthers
  • DB Jameson Houston: 5 tackles, 2 passes defended

  • DT JaQuan Bailey: 6 tackles (1 for loss)

Birmingham Stallions
  • WR Manasseh Bailey: N/A

  • TE Cary Angeline: 4 receptions (8 targets), 66 yards

Pittsburgh Maulers
  • QB Kyle Lauletta: 9/12, 41 passing yards

  • CB Ajene Harris: N/A

Houston Gamblers
  • QB Clayton Thorson: 15/24, 240 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 interception

New Orleans Breakers
  • DE Shareef Miller: 5 tackles (1 for loss), 1.0 sack

Tampa Bay Bandits
  • S Obi Melifonwu: 3 tackles

  • WR Rashard Davis: 4 receptions (4 targets), 57 yards

Philadelphia Stars
  • The Stars got out to an early 10-0 lead against the New Jersey Gamblers, but an injury to their impressive QB Bryan Scott halted any momentum they had in the game, and eventually went on to lose 24-16. With injuries to both his ankle and knee, Scott announced that he is stepping away from the Stars and heading home to address his injuries; their is a likelihood he misses the rest of the season.

We'll track these former Eagles along with the Philadelphia Stars throughout their seasons to see if any play well enough to earn another chance in the NFL, and possibly another chance in Philadelphia.
