The Arlington Renegades continue to make moves in UFL free agency. DB Elijah Hamilton and OL Jordan Steckler have signed with the team, which is rather interesting considering both players had been available in the dispersal drafts.
Jordan Steckler is a nice pickup, and one that’s underrated for Arlington. Steckler was a standout lineman at Northern Illinois. He was sensational through four seasons with the team – starting in 42 of 45 games played.
Steckler landed with the Houston Texans in 2021, and participated in two NFL games that year. In 2022 he stuck with Houston, but did not see any minutes during the season.
This led Steckler to sign with the Houston Gamblers in 2023. He played in six games for Houston, starting five of them. After the season, he was let go – but was claimed by the Philadelphia Stars.
Now, he finds a new home in the UFL, signing with the Arlington Renegades.
DB Elijah Hamilton
Elijah Hamilton is back in the XFL, this time with the Arlington Renegades in the United Football League. Hamilton played with the St. Louis Battlehawks during the 2023 season, and played in eight games (starting in three).
Elijah finished with 13 tackles and a few PBU’s, making an impact in the secondary. Following his XFL campaign, Hamilton signed with the Green Bay Packers and spent the 2023 preseason with the team.
After going undrafted, Elijah Hamilton now signs with the Arlington Renegades, bringing depth to a secondary that will look a lot different in 2023. Interestingly enough, Hamilton had some CFL interest from multiple teams, but ended up signing back to the UFL.
General Manager Rick Mueller is filling up roster spots quickly now, with only six remaining. The team currently sits at 69 players rostered, and will have to solidify their 75 for training camp by February 14th.
