Maurice Clarett, Reggie Williams added to UFL rosters

AP

We leave no stone unturned in seeking professional football news of any kind during the lockout, and that includes scanning the UFL’s transaction notices. And today those transactions include a couple of names you’ll recognize.

Maurice Clarett, the troubled former Ohio State star who signed with the Omaha Nighthawks after getting out of prison last year, is apparently returning to the team. He’s been added to Omaha’s active roster.

And Reggie Williams, the wide receiver who had a rocky tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars after being selected ninth overall in the 2004 NFL draft, has been added to the active roster of the Sacramento Mountain Lions.

Omaha will play Sacramento on Sunday, August 14, in the season opener for both teams. We hope that weekend also features some NFL preseason action.

  1. I’d rather see Arena Football news.

    Most UFL stories could be written with a template.

    “Former [NFL team(s)] [position] [name] has [signed/worked out] with [UFL team] in one last gasp to save his professional career.

    [Last name] was a [round] draft pick in [year] and [statistics] before [getting arrested/injured/bad at football] in [year].”

  2. I’m just glad I don’t get to watch UFL games. I got so tired of watching Reggie Williams jump up and do some “funky chicken shake my dreads” every time he caught a pass for a half-yard gain…..”And he just may go All The…..Nope, he trips on a blabe of grass!”

  3. I am happy to see that Maurice is coming back to my Nighthawks. He is going to break out this year….and not from jail…in a big way.
