USFL Star Jace Sternberger’s NFL Return: A Second Chance with Buffalo Bills?

After a triumphant season in the United States Football League (USFL), tight end Jace Sternberger has found a new home with the Buffalo Bills, marking his return to the National Football League (NFL). NFL insiders report that the Bills were impressed enough during Sternberger’s workout to move forward with signing him, adding to their already deep tight end lineup.

27-year-old Sternberger’s journey back to the NFL is a tale of resilience. His professional career began with the Green Bay Packers, where he was the 75th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft’s third round. However, his time with the Packers was underwhelming. Sternberger only received one target in his rookie year, followed by a modest 12 receptions and 114 yards with one touchdown the next season. His time with the Packers ended in 2021, following a two-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

After leaving Green Bay, Sternberger found his stride with the USFL’s Birmingham Stallions. In his breakout season, he led the USFL with seven touchdowns and finished fourth in receiving yards, helping the Stallions clinch their second consecutive league title. His USFL success has rewarded him with this second shot at an NFL career.

Sternberger’s college career is also noteworthy. After two seasons at Kansas, he transferred to Texas A&M. His performance there, yielding 48 receptions and 832 yards with ten touchdowns, earned him All-SEC and All-American honors in 2018.

Now with the Buffalo Bills, Sternberger is up against some stiff competition. The Bills’ tight end room is crowded, featuring Dawson Knox, 2023 first-round draft pick Dalton Kincaid, and Quintin Morris. The path to a roster spot may be challenging, but Sternberger’s USFL success could be a harbinger of his potential impact in Buffalo.

While Sternberger might be a long shot to make the Bills’ roster, his journey from the USFL to the NFL offers a compelling narrative for the upcoming season. Sternberger’s second NFL stint promises to be an intriguing story of redemption and perseverance, drawing in football fans from all corners. Keep an eye out on this one, Bills fans – this season may hold some surprising twists and turns.
