Birmingham Stallions Re-Sign TE La'Michael Pettway

Stallions TE La’Michael Pettway Signs To New England Patriots

La’Michael Pettway has made his way back to the NFL. The New England Patriots have signed the former Birmingham Stallions TE to their practice squad.

Pettway has been in the spring football scene the past two years. He began his USFL career with the Michigan Panthers, and made an impact in 2022 for a team that struggled to win football games. La’Michael had 307 receiving yards and two scores that year.

In 2023, La’Michael ended up joining the Stallions midway through the season. He added another 99 yards and two touchdowns to his resume there, also winning the Championship. One of his highlights came in week eight, catching the go ahead score against Philadelphia.

Following his USFL campaign, Pettway signed with the Indianapolis Colts. He suffered an injury during training camp, which ultimately led to his release.

Pettway had re-signed with the Stallions a few weeks ago, for the 2024 season. Now, he’s headed back to the NFL, this time with the New England Patriots.

Had it not been for the national platform that the USFL provided him with, who knows if this opportunity would be possible. You can stay up to date on all USFL to NFL signings with our official tracker.
