Pittsburgh Maulers Bring Back Quarterback James Morgan

The Pittsburgh Maulers signed another player on Saturday. Quarterback James Morgan makes his way to the steel city once again after spending some time with the Maulers in 2022 when he signed in September. Although he didn’t take a snap in the USFL’s inaugural season, he has returned for a second stint.

Morgan played his college ball at Bowling Green and Florida International from 2015-2019, throwing for 12,221 yards and 65 touchdowns. He spent some brief time in the NFL getting drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft at 125 overall. He was waived after just one season.

Since then he’s hopped to a handful of different practice squads. Spending time with the Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, the Jets again, and the Indianapolis Colts. After his one stint with the Maulers last year he was brought on by the Arizona Cardinals, but his practice squad contract expired last week and he was brought back to the Maulers.

Hopefully, the Maulers get themselves an adequate starter after this signing, and Morgan can get himself some game tape to make a run back at the NFL. He’ll be just 26 in February, with plenty of time and room to grow.

    For a little extra clarification he was signed by the Maulers in 2022 after the season had already and this was forward to an open competition for 2023. It’s not like he was signed and couldn’t compete with the other 4 quarterbacks on Maulers roster. I personally feel this is a marriage made in heaven. The Maulers get an experienced QB with lots of good receivers. Now if they can bring Bailey Gaither back to camp then they can let the competition begin. This will help James Morgan get tape for the NFL. The Maulers are looking to have a better year 2 for sure.
