We are now through nine weeks of the USFL season and there is just one more week left before the playoffs start. 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: 10/16, 92 passing yards, 1 touchdown
QB Kyle Lauletta: N/A
DT Destiny Vaeao: 2 tackles (1 for loss), 1 pass defended
CB De'Vante Bausby: 3 passes defended
S Trae Elston: 9 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass defended
DB Jameson Houston: 7 tackles, 1 pass defended
DT JaQuan Bailey: 3 tackles
WR Devin Ross: 1 reception (5 targets), 10 receiving yards; 6 kick returns, 97 KR yards
WR Ray Bolden: N/A
TE Cary Angeline: N/A
*The Maulers currently have no former Eagles on their roster
QB Clayton Thorson: N/A
New Orleans Breakers
DE Shareef Miller: N/A
Tampa Bay Bandits
S Obi Melifonwu: N/A
WR Rashard Davis: 6 receptions (6 targets), 112 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown
Even though they already clinched a playoff spot and didn't have much to play for, it would have been pretty embarassing for the Stars to lose to a 1-8 Pittsburgh Maulers squad. They trailed 16-10 with five minutes left and didn't have the ball, but a fumble recovery solved that problem; then on the next play a 51 yard touchdown run from Matthew Colbourn put the Stars on top, eventually ending in a 17-16 victory for the Stars. The Stars have one more regular season game left, and then they will play the New Jersey Generals in the USFL North Division Final on Saturday, June 25th at 3PM. If they defeat the Generals they would play in the USFL Championship Game which will be held on July 3rd at 7:30PM.
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.
