Marcus Baugh is a tremendous pickup for the Breakers offensive unit. Baugh has been with the Michigan Panthers throughout the last two seasons, but now makes the move in USFL free agency to New Orleans.
Through 2022 and 2023, Marcus Baugh has been one of the most underrated tight ends in the league. He’s posted 300 receiving yards and three touchdowns in his USFL career, and started in all ten games for Michigan in 2023.

In free agency, Baugh decided not to re-sign with Michigan, even though they originally planned to bring him back. Marcus already had a relationship with John DeFilippo and the Breakers, as the organization is very high on his skill sets.
Now, he is set to join New Orleans for the 2024 USFL season. With both Sage Surratt and Marcus Baugh in the Breakers’ tight end room, things are looking pretty good for that core heading into next season.
