Stacked with former NFL players, Omaha hopes to make noise in the UFL

The second UFL season debuts in a week, and the league’s newest team looks the most like an NFL team of any of them.

The Omaha Nighthawks, with a roster compiled by former Broncos G.M. Ted Sundquist, have added more and more former NFL players to the roster.  Earlier this week, former Colts and Bucs linebacker Cato June joined a squad that features quarterback Jeff Garcia, running backs Ahman Green and Maurice Clarett, cornerback Ricardo Colclough, defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek, receivers Robert Ferguson and Devard Darling, tackle George Foster, linebacker Morlon Greenwood, receiver David Kircus, tight end Jeb Putzier, safety Stuart Schweigert, linebacker Gary Stills, linebacker Nick Greisen, and defensive tackle Wendell Bryant. 

Other new UFL arrivals with NFL experience include linebacker Edgerton Hartwell (Las Vegas), running backs Dominic Rhodes, Aveion Cason, and Maurice Hicks (Florida), quarterback Daunte Culpepper (Sacramento), and quarterback Josh McCown (Hartford).

One guy who’d have an interest in jumping to the UFL and getting some game reps is quarterback Pat White, who as we reported on Friday will sign with the Kansas City Royals.  It’s unclear whether any UFL team currently has interest.
