The Birmingham Stallions will be one of eight teams to play this season in the USFL down in Birmingham, Alabama.

Prediction for most productive offensive player

Even though he isn’t listed under who played in the NFL section, keep an eye out for CJ Marable, who had an excellent college career at Coastal Carolina and spent last preseason with the Chicago Bears. Marable can be a factor both in the running and receiving games for the Stallions and whomever they have starting at quarterback.
