The Stallions made a huge splash in their Wide Receiver room in 2023 by adding two future NFL players in Davion Davis and Austin Watkins both of which are now getting ready to contribute to their teams down the stretch. In the 2023/24 off-season, the Stallions continued with that track record retained Marlon Williams for a 3rd season with the team (albeit off an injury), along with familiar friend in 2022 USFL Championship MVP Victor Bolden, off his stint in the XFL and Houston Texans.
The Stallions were hit hard by the NFL in the Off-Season seeing Davion Davis, Austin Watkins, and Deon Cain (2023 USFL Championship Game MVP), all earn NFL contracts, and also opted to not resign Adrian Hardy, along with Michael Dereus both of whom served in reserve roles for the Stallions over the past two seasons. Birmingham does return a decent amount of experience with Peyton Ramzy, Joshua Johnson, and Myron Mitchell now going into multiple year in the system.
Overall, it may appear that Birmingham’s Wide Receiver group could be its Achillies heel of the team in 2024. With the team going all in with J’Mar Smith next season, the team could be holding out on making a “splash” later in free agency. Currently, with Five Receivers on the roster, no Jace Sternberger on the team (yet) at TE, it appears the 2024 Stallions could be heavily influenced by the “ground game”.
