The first move of USFL free agency is official: the Philadelphia Stars have re-signed WR Chris Rowland for the 2024 season. This may not have been exactly what some would have expected as the first signing in free agency, but it’s an important move nonetheless.
The Philadelphia Stars have re-signed WR Chris Rowland, just hours after the free agency market opened.
In 2023, things went a bit differently for Chris. He only played in three games, being placed on season-ending IR early on. Rowland finished the year with 83 receiving yards, and scored the first touchdown of the 2023 season for Philadelphia.
Where Chris Rowland made an exceptional mark was on special teams. In just three games, he returned 13 kicks for 323 total yards, with a long of 47.
Chris will look to bounce back in 2024, and is bound to have a breakout campaign as long as he stays fully healthy.
So far, General Manager Michael Woods has re-signed, or signed the following players:
WR Jordan Suell OL Jacob Burton OT Jordan Steckler OG Warren Ericson DT Auzoyah Alufohai DT Cedrick Lattimore DE Adam Rodriguez LB Gabriel Sewell Jr. K Luis Aguilar LS Ryan Navarro
