Memphis Showboats Sign Free Agent DE Josiah Bronson For 2024

The Memphis Showboats have made another move as USFL free agency comes to a close. DE Josiah Bronson has signed a contract with the team, bringing depth to the defensive line for 2024.

Josiah Bronson began his college career at Temple, but saw very limited action. He transferred to Washington in 2018, and immediately made an impact with 11 tackles and a sack that year.

In 2019, Bronson started in 11 games for Washington, totaling 23 tackles and two sacks. His shortened season in 2020 was productive as well, with 8 tackles in just three starts. Bronson is a versatile lineman, having experience as both a tackle and an end.

From there, Josiah has been in and out of the NFL for the past few seasons. Bronson has had stints with the New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, and Miami Dolphins.

Josiah played in six games with the Saints in 2021, racking up 11 tackles. He also played in one game for the Cleveland Browns, making one tackle in that appearance.

Since then, Bronson has looked to find his footing in the professional scene. Following his release from the Miami Dolphins, he now ends up in the USFL with the Memphis Showboats.

Final Thoughts

It’s been an interesting offseason for Memphis. The team is undergoing a coaching change right now, having been confirmed to be a part of the USFL-XFL merger by the USFLPA.

Right now, the team is focusing on securing their final free agents for 2024. The organization will now have to decide which 42 players they want to protect before the dispersal draft process begins.
