Former MVP Signs with an NFL Team
United States Football League (USFL) Championship Most Valuable Player and Birmingham Stallions wide receiver Victor Bolden Jr. signs with the Arizona Cardinals on a one-year $750,000 deal.
Bolden was one of many standouts for the Birmingham Stallions who this year beat the Philadelphia Stars to become the inaugural USFL Champions. In the biggest game of the year, Bolden caught six balls for sixty-four yards and one touchdown. As well as receiving Bolden also gave the Stallions offense great field position with 92 yards off of kick returns.
This is not the first time Bolden has been in the NFL. Coming out of Oregon State, Bolden went undrafted in the 2017 draft before getting picked up by the San Francisco 49ers in free agency. After being a practice special teams guy for two years, Bolden spent one year on the Buffalo Bills practice squad, and then finally spent a year on the Detroit Lions practice squad before getting waived in March 2020,
After two failed attempts at a spring football league by the Alliance of American Football League (AAF) and Xtreme Football League (XFL), the USFL was the next spring league for NFL castoffs. After getting called up by the Birmingham Stallions, Bolden showed scouts that he still belonged in the NFL. In ten games for the Stallions, Bolden caught 42 passes for 415 yards as well as returned the ball for 618 yards.
The former Stallion joins Kyler Murray and an Arizona Cardinals team that is on the verge of being a serious Super Bowl Contender. Bolden will add the element of speed to a stacked receiving core that has guys like Deandre Hopkins, AJ Green, and Zach Ertz. Also expect Coach Kliff Kingsbury to use Bolden's speed on trick plays and kickoff returns.
