USFL 2024: Bo Scarbrough Re-Signs with Birmingham Stallions

In a significant move ahead of the 2024 USFL season, the Birmingham Stallions have re-signed running back Bo Scarbrough, a decision announced by the team on a Thursday night. Here, we detail Scarbrough’s past performances and the expectations setting up for the 2024 season.

Scarbrough’s Previous Stints with the Stallions

Joining the Stallions in the first season only by the fifth game, Scarbrough nevertheless managed to rush for 352 yards and secure a touchdown over six regular-season games. This performance placed him tenth in the league for rushing, an impressive feat considering his late start.

Scarbrough’s second season with the team was marred by a knee injury, restricting his playtime significantly. A surgery to remove a bone spur from his knee further sidelined him, with Scarbrough not returning to the field that season.

NFL Career Overview

Before joining the USFL, Scarbrough had a fluctuating career in the NFL. Initially drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2018, he moved between teams, including stints with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Seattle Seahawks. He eventually made his NFL debut with the Detroit Lions, showcasing promise with a 55-yard and one touchdown performance in his debut. Injuries, however, impacted his NFL tenure, leading to a series of releases and re-signings across different teams.

The 2022 Championship Performance

In spite of the challenges faced during the 2022 season, Scarbrough managed to demonstrate his skill during the championship game, marking a critical contribution to the Stallions’ victory. With a total of 135 yards and a touchdown accrued over 13 carries, he was instrumental in sealing the win for his team.

Looking Forward: 2024 Season Prospects

As we approach the 2024 season, Scarbrough is expected to share the field with C. J. Marable, another recently re-signed running back for the Stallions. While Scarbrough missed the entirety of the 2023 season recuperating from his surgery, anticipation builds as fans eagerly await his return to the field, hopeful for performances reminiscent of his 2022 championship game exploits.

With a history of both remarkable performances and unexpected setbacks, Scarbrough’s return to the Stallions comes with a mix of high expectations and caution. As the Stallions gear up for the 2024 season, Scarbrough’s experience and demonstrated skill on the field will undeniably be assets to the team, offering a promising outlook for the season ahead. Stay tuned as we follow the Stallions’ journey in the forthcoming USFL season.

    This is an excellent piece. When the USFL started he was on my USFL prospect list. I think my girlfriend kind of thought I was crazy, but I told her that this gentleman has been through some injuries, but held promise. Then comes the USFL and the Stallions. Even though I had CJ Marable on my fantasy team, I was happy the Stallions signed him. See this was when the USFL was specifically about building its own stars. I hoped if the league signed some familiar NFL level talent, it might helped the league grow. What Bo did was incredible. He performed very well and was a key member of the USFL Champion Stallions. His hometown status and larger than life persona really helped the USFL gain traction in Birmingham. I always felt he ran with speed, power and purpose and could read blocks, but I always felt he ran kind of straight up and wondered if this was from some of his injuries from the past or just his style. I wonder because if this style helps keep stress of his legs from hard cuts, maybe he can be the runner he was in 2022, reading blocks and using his stretch and speed. I would love to see him back to that level, where he was growing stronger each week. It will be interesting to see what happens with 4 good running backs on the Stallions. Looking forward to seeing him in 2024
