Austin Watkins played in the USFL this past season, and performed well despite dealing with some injuries along the way. He finished the year with 197 receiving yards, and a touchdown. In fact, his score was Birmingham’s first of the USFL 2023 season.
After a successful workout with the Cleveland Browns, he has signed with the team ahead of training camp. Had it not been for the platform – and the national exposure – that the USFL provided him with, who knows if this opportunity would have come along.
