Following Former Eagles in the USFL: Week 8

We are now through seven weeks of the USFL season and now there are only three weeks left in the regular season. Each week we have been tracking former Eagles and their production in this spring-league. You can take a look back at previous weeks below:

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. Every team has at least one former Eagle except for the Philadelphia Stars and the Pittsburgh Maulers.

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

New Jersey Generals
  • QB Luis Perez: 18/24, 220 passing yards, 1 touchdown

  • QB Kyle Lauletta: N/A

  • DT Destiny Vaeao: 2 tackles

  • CB De'Vante Bausby: 3 tackles

  • S Trae Elston: 3 tackles

Michigan Panthers
  • DB Jameson Houston: 3 tackles

  • DT JaQuan Bailey: 1 tackle, 0.5 sack

  • WR Devin Ross: 2 receptions (2 targets), 21 receiving yards; 1 rush, 8 rushing yards

  • WR Ray Bolden: N/A

Birmingham Stallions
  • TE Cary Angeline: N/A

Pittsburgh Maulers

*The Maulers currently have no former Eagles on their roster

Houston Gamblers
  • QB Clayton Thorson: N/A

New Orleans Breakers
  • DE Shareef Miller: N/A

Tampa Bay Bandits
  • S Obi Melifonwu: N/A

  • WR Rashard Davis: 3 receptions (3 targets), 37 receiving yards

Philadelphia Stars
  • The Stars had a tight 21-18 lead over the Michigan pathers at halftime, but they blew the game up in the second half which resulted in a dominant 46-24 win. Stars QB Case Cookus won the Offensive Player of the Week Award after a stellar two-way performance (20/26, 247 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, 102 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown). CB Channing Stribbling had a pick and leads the USFL with 6 interceptions on the season. The Stars are now 5-3 and have clinched a playoff berth as they will finish no worse than second in their division (the top 2 teams in each division advance to playoffs).

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.
