Atlanta Falcons Sign USFL DPOY Frank Ginda To Practice Squad Michigan Panthers

USFL DPOY Frank Ginda Re-Signs To Michigan Panthers Again

Guess who’s back, back again…again. Linebacker Frank Ginda has re-signed to the Michigan Panthers, for the second time over the past few months.

Frank Ginda is fresh off an NFL stint with the Atlanta Falcons, as he was signed to the practice squad midway through the NFL season. Ginda had originally signed with the team during the preseason, but was cut in late August.

In the final game of the preseason, Ginda led the Falcons with ten tackles, despite playing in just two quarters of action.

Unfortunately, the Falcons went in a different direction, releasing Frank before the regular season began. They eventually brought him back – and he held out for a futures deal up until yesterday.

Frank Ginda’s return to the Michigan Panthers is excellent news for the Michigan Panthers franchise. He’s been a key piece for the team, as Ginda has been one of the top players in the USFL the last two seasons.

During the 2022 season, Frank notched 90 tackles and a sack, serving as a consistent piece to a team that struggled with a 2-8 record.

In 2023, Frank Ginda built upon his impressive campaign, ultimately earning USFL defensive player of the year honors. He posted 104 tackles, four TFL, three interceptions, and a sack en route to a postseason berth with Michigan.

Now, he is locked back into the Michigan Panthers roster for the 2024 UFL season. This time, he likely won’t be going anywhere. The leader of the defense is back, ready to bring more quality play to the field this year.

Final Thoughts

General Manager Steve Kazor and HC Mike Nolan clearly were leaving a spot on the roster for Ginda to re-sign. At the Panthers’ town hall this past weekend, Nolan indicated that they were getting closer to making things official.

Now with 73 of their 75 roster spots filled, the Panthers will be able to make a couple more moves before training camp begins.
