New Orleans Breakers Re-Sign CB Michael Stevens For 2024

New Orleans Breakers Re-Sign CB Michael Stevens For 2024

The New Orleans Breakers have brought back another defensive piece, re-signing CB Michael Stevens. This is the first official move the team has made during this USFL free agency period.

Michael Stevens has been with the Breakers for the past two seasons in the USFL. In 2022, he finished the year with 17 tackles and an interception, helping lead the team to a postseason berth.

During the 2023 campaign, Stevens played an important role with New Orleans. He was active for all ten games, and started six of them at corner. Michael posted 25 total tackles in 2023.

Stevens is no stranger to spring football. He played with the XFL’s Los Angeles Wildcats during the shortened 2020 season, registering 26 tackles, two interceptions, and a sack in just five games.

Prior to that stint, he was excellent at North Carolina State. Now, he is set to return to the New Orleans Breakers for the 2024 USFL season.

Final Thoughts

General Manager Ryan Jones has slowly but surely brought some key athletes back to New Orleans, including:

WR Jonathan Adams
OL Jackson Kramer
DT Connor Christian
DT Djimon Brooks
DE Anree Saint-Amour
LB Jerod Fernandez
LB Vontae Diggs
S Jarey Elder
P Matt White
LS Turner Bernard

The team also signed free agent OL Sidney Wells a couple of months ago.
