Deon Cain joined the Stallions before season two began, looking to bring depth to a team that had lost Victor Bolden in the offseason.
The former Clemson standout was excellent this year, despite dealing with some obstacles along the way, such as an illness that kept him sidelined for a few weeks.
Cain was highly regarded as one of the top special team threats in the USFL. In weeks three and four, he took kicks back to the house – which included the go-ahead touchdown against Pittsburgh in Canton.
Deon Cain likely solidified his trip back to the NFL with his USFL Championship performance. Cain posted 171 total yards, while catching four passes for 70 yards – and three touchdowns. He was unstoppable, ultimately earning USFL Championship MVP honors for his efforts.
The 2023 season was full of Deon Cain highlights. He finished the year with 182 receiving yards and two touchdowns – while posting 668 kick return yards as well.
After a long and agonizing wait, we finally know where Deon is headed. The Birmingham Stallions have been on a tear. Of the seven USFL players to sign with NFL teams, six of them are from Birmingham. WR Davion Davis and TE Jace Sternberger just signed with their respective NFL organizations yesterday.
Now, Deon Cain is headed back to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles. Had it not been for the platform – and the national exposure – that the USFL provided him with, who knows if this opportunity would have come along.
