As the USFL enters its first offseason since a renaissance season, the league continues to add HBCU talent.
One team, the New Jersey Generals, have made two such pickups.
New Jersey first signed former North Carolina Central and Morgan State offensive lineman Bruce Trigg.
Trigg’s college career began at Morgan State where he played his first four seasons before transferring to North Carolina Central where he spent this past season.
In his lone season with the Eagles, he was named to the All-MEAC second team, allowing just one sack in nine games.

After college, the Vikings quarterback spent time with the Indoor Football League’s Iowa Barnstormers.
