The New Orleans Breakers have made a few new additions to their roster in the last few days, signing former New Orleans Saints Safety Saquan Hampton, former Monmouth running back Peter Guerriero, and offensive lineman Lo Falemaka.
S – Saquan Hampton
College: Rutgers (2014 – 2018)
College Accolades: Reese’s Senior Bowl Defensive Player of the Week (2018), Homer Hazel Award (2018), Douglas A. Smith Award (2015)
Pro Experience: New Orleans Saints (2019 – 2020), New York Jets (2020 – 2021), Edmonton Elks (CFL, 2022)
After a redshirt season in 2014, Saquan Hampton played 4 seasons at Rutgers University, appearing in 39 games (27 starts) for the college program. In that span, he’d total 177 tackles (120 solo/ 57 assisted), 7 tackles for loss, 5 interceptions, 24 pass deflections, and a fumble recovery.
Following the 2018 season, Hampton declared for the 2019 NFL Draft and was selected in the 6th round by the New Orleans Saints. He played in 5 games before getting placed on injured reserve in mid-December 2019 and was waived with an injury settlement in September 2020.
After getting released from the Saints, Hampton signed with the New York Jets practice squad. He’d be elevated to the active roster for a game in early December 2020 but was placed on injured reserve a few days later. He was released from the Jets near the end of September 2021.
Most recently, Hampton spent time with the CFL’s Edmonton Elks for their 2022 season. However, he didn’t see any game action.
RB – Peter Guerriero
College: Monmouth (2016 – 2019)
College Accolades: First Team All-Big South (2017), STATS FCS National Player of the Week (2017), All-ECAC Second Team (2017), Named Second-Team All-Big South (2018), FCS Running Back of the Year (2019), First-Team Consensus All-American (2019), FCS Running Back of the Year (2019)
Pro Experience: New York Jets (2020, 2021), Carolina Panthers (2020), Pittsburgh Steelers (2021), New Jersey Generals (USFL, 2022)
After a redshirt season in 2016, Peter Guerriero played three seasons at Monmouth University, appearing in 34 games (29 starts) for the school. In that time, Guerriero totaled 610 rush attempts for 3,974 yards and 35 touchdowns. Additionally, he’d haul in 69 receptions for 551 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns.
Following the 2020 NFL Draft, Guerriero signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets but did not make the team’s final roster. Shortly after getting cut, he’d sign with the Carolina Panthers practice squad before eventually returning to the Jets to close out the 2020 season. Guerriero would be cut from the Jets to start the 2021 season but signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers for their preseason. Unfortunately, he’d never see any regular season action in that time.
Most recently, Guerriero played with the USFL’s New Jersey Generals in 2022. He was released at the end of the season and now joins the New Orleans Breakers.
C/G – Lo Falemaka

After a redshirt season in 2013 and playing on the scout team in 2014, Lo Falemaka played 4 seasons at the University of Utah from 2015 through 2018. He appeared in 35 games for the program, playing center and guard, and earned two All-Pac 12 honorable mention selections. However, Falemaka found himself injured throughout his collegiate career, missing 18 games in his time at Utah. His injuries made him eligible for a medical extension from the NCAA which allowed an extra year of eligibility.
Following the 2019 NFL Draft, Falemaka signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent. Unfortunately, he spent the entire 2019 season on IR and was waived in February 2020.
