Birmingham Stallions Sign WR Chris Lacy In UFL Free Agency

The defending USFL champion Birmingham Stallions added their 75th player this week in wide receiver Chris Lacy.

Oklahoma State Cowboys

Lacy was a two-year starter at Oklahoma State University. During his time at OSU, he caught 63 passes for 920 yards and five touchdowns. He was a great guy to have in the locker room, twice winning the Vernon Grant Award, given to the player who demonstrates outstanding leadership, spirit, and enthusiasm.

Lacy signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He was cut a week later but got picked up by the Lions. He spent two seasons with them, mostly on the practice squad but also spending a little time on the active roster. He caught three passes for 60 yards during that time.

Chris spent the 2020 season on the Cowboys practice squad. He was signed by the Bears for 2021 but released at the end of preseason and did not get picked up by anyone else. He spent 2022 on the Raiders practice squad but was cut by them at the end of the 2023 preseason.

After spending the past few months as a free agent, Lacy signed with Birmingham.

Birmingham Stallions

Chris Lacy is an interesting add as the Stallions’ 75th (and potentially final) player. They already have a lot of talented wide receivers, but it never hurts to add more. What Lacy brings to the table that few other Stallions wide receivers have is size. He is 6’3, 205, making him the second-tallest wide receiver on the Stallions roster. He will have to compete for a roster spot, though, with several other very talented players.

Zach Potter recently tweeted out a GIF of the Kansas Jayhawk, indicating that another signing is on the way. It will be interesting to see not only who that new player is, but also who the Stallions release as they are now at capacity. Stay tuned as the Stallions finalize their UFL roster for 2024.
