The MVP of the USFL, KaVontae Turpin, made his regular season NFL debut last night. The shifty speedster impressed in preseason with the Dallas Cowboys. He took two kicks to the house against Los Angeles, which earned him a spot on the roster.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. KaVontae Turpin did it AGAIN. I'm speechless. There's really not much left to say. The #USFL MVP is simply out of this world.
As the NFL season continues, expect Turpin to feel more comfortable as a returner in the future. This was his first time playing on the biggest stage in the world, and he can only go up from here. On top of that, he will likely become more involved with the offense as they figure out where – and when – to use him.
KaVontae Turpin & The USFL
Of course, we are all familiar with his USFL story by now. After playing in almost every alternative league imaginable, Turpin went to the USFL in 2022 – and dominated. He deservingly won MVP, making plays all season long for the New Jersey Generals.
The USFL's MVP just signed a THREE YEAR deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Due to the opportunity, and national exposure, that the USFL provided him with, KaVontae Turpin’s career was forever changed. Now, he’s playing an important role for the Dallas Cowboys – and we’re excited to see what’s next.
