Philadelphia Stars Sign Free Agent RB Kennedy Brooks For 2024

The Philadelphia Stars have been beefing up their backfield this USFL offseason. Kennedy Brooks has officially signed to the team, just weeks after free agent RB Seth Rowland joined the Stars.

Kennedy Brooks is an extremely talented back out of Oklahoma. Through three seasons with the team, he posted 3,316 rushing yards, alongside 31 touchdowns.

During his senior campaign, Brooks registered 1,297 rushing yards and 13 scores – averaging 6.3 YPC. His speed and elusiveness make him into a quality playmaker who can provide Philadelphia with game changing attributes.

One of his career highlights came in a game against Texas, where he walked it off in the final seconds with an explosive touchdown run.

Kennedy Brooks is no stranger to the city of Philadelphia. He spent the last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL, but was ultimately released by the team this past August.

Now, Brooks is set to continue his professional career in the USFL, with the Philadelphia Stars.

Final Thoughts

The Philadelphia Stars are stacked at the running back position. Including Kennedy Brooks, they also currently roster:

Dexter Williams
Matt Colburn
Jamyest Williams
Paul Terry
Seth Rowland

GM Michael Woods has been making moves over the past couple of months. It was a slow start to the offseason for Philadelphia, but they have quietly been rebuilding a solid group of athletes for the 2024 season.

After a 4-6 record in 2023 that resulted in missing the postseason, Philadelphia has a lot of work to do to get back to the dominance we saw during their 2022 campaign.
