Houston Gamblers Sign Free Agent QB Jarrett Guarantano

Houston Gamblers Sign Free Agent QB Jarrett Guarantano

As USFL free agency comes to a close in a few days, the Houston Gamblers signed QB Jarrett Guarantano – adding depth to the quarterback room.

Jarrett Guarantano is an intriguing prospect for spring football. He began his college career at Tennessee, throwing for 997 yards and four touchdowns in 2017.

During the 2018 season, Guarantano started in all 12 games for Tennessee. He threw for 1,907 yards and 12 touchdowns, to only three interceptions. The next season, he added over 2,000 yards through the air and another 16 scores to his tally.

During a shortened 2020 tenure, Jarrett started in 7 games for the Volunteers, racking up 1,112 passing yards and another six touchdowns.

In 2021, Guarantano decided to transfer to Washington State. There, he started in two of three games played, totaling 304 passing yards and a touchdown, alongside three interceptions.

Since then, Jarrett Guarantano has been looking to find some stability in the professional scene. He had preseason stints with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos, but wasn’t able to stick on a 53 man roster.

For a time in the 2022 NFL preseason, Jarrett was a top three signal caller in overall passer rating.

Final Thoughts

Now, Jarrett Guarantano will look to kickstart his professional career in the merged league. The Houston Gamblers are confirmed to be a part of the new league, as the USFLPA informed players of this news earlier this week. After having conversations with multiple USFL and XFL teams, Jarrett lands with the Gamblers.

As it stands right now, the Gamblers also feature QB Kenji Bahar and QB Montell Cozart on the roster. Kenji started in all ten games last year, but Jarrett will most definitely provide some quality competition in training camp.
