DC Defenders Add TE Ben Bresnahan In UFL Free Agency

Reggie Barlow and the DC Defenders have been strategically adding talent throughout UFL free agency. TE Ben Bresnahan now joins the fold as the latest addition, signing to the team on Friday.

Bresnahan is an intriguing prospect out of Vanderbilt. He played at the school for five years, totaling 701 receiving yards and five touchdowns across that span.

Ben brings depth to the tight end room, one that needs it. Ethan Wolf, who was DC’s primary tight end in 2023, has retired. This leaves Briley Moore, Shaun Beyer, and Alex Ellis as the other three TE’s rostered, and Bresnahan enters the room as someone who is more than capable of making the final roster.

Throughout his career, Ben has had experience playing at different positions, including fullback and halfback. Bresnahan was nominated as a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy in 2022.

Since declaring for the NFL draft, Ben Bresnahan has had a couple of NFL opportunities, working out for the Atlanta Falcons and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Now, he’ll look to jumpstart his professional career in the UFL, with the DC Defenders.

Final Thoughts

GM Von Hutchins has been busy, adding talent throughout this offseason. The team just signed DB Deandre Baker (alongside several others), and now roster 73 players – with two slots open for training camp.
