Memphis Showboats Sign Free Agent QB Guy Myers For 2024

Memphis Showboats Sign Free Agent QB Guy Myers For 2024

Guy Myers has made his return to the USFL. The Memphis Showboats have signed Myers just days before USFL free agency is officially put on hold until the dispersal drafts are complete.

Guy Myers began his college career at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M JC. He played in eleven games in 2018, throwing for 1,329 yards and 12 touchdowns.

From there, Myers transferred to Charleston. He saw limited time from 2019-2020, compiling 852 yards and six touchdowns across that span.

It wasn’t until 2021 when Guy had his “breakout” campaign. Myers completed 65.2% of his pass attempts, registering 1,817 yards and 12 touchdowns through the air. In addition, he showcased his mobility, racking up 509 rushing yards and nine rushing scores that year.

Interestingly enough, Guy Myers spent time in the USFL in 2022. He was signed by the New Jersey Generals midway through the season, on May 19th. The Generals would later release him on June 1st.

Myers quickly found a new home, being picked up by the Tampa Bay Bandits off of waivers. However, the Bandits would release Guy before the 2023 season began (as they transitioned to Memphis).

Despite the release, Guy put his head down and continued to grind. He was recently signed by the Carolina Cobras in arena football. Myers also attended GRID Camps event on October 15th, and was excellent. He was clearly one of the top quarterbacks at the workout, which was certainly noticed by USFL personnel in attendance.

Final Thoughts

Now, Myers has re-signed with his former team. The Memphis Showboats are one of the teams confirmed to make it into the new league, and now sign another signal caller ahead of the dispersal draft process.
