The Baltimore Brigade, the city's new Arena Football League team, announced Friday that they have signed several wide receivers.
Julian Talley, who played for the Pittsburgh Power as well as the New York Giants, and Ify Umodu, who played for Northern Arizona University, join fellow wide receiver Reggie Gray on the team's inaugural roster.
“We are excited to have Julian Talley and his professional experience,” head coach Omarr Smith said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have such a talented group of wide receivers as the foundation for our offense.”
The Brigade had introduced Gray at the team's unveiling of its name and logo this week.
“Reggie Gray is a significant signing for us. He is one of the most exciting players in the AFL”, Smith said. “He can be a game changer for our offense, has great work ethic and leadership skills. We have high expectations for Reggie this year and know he is up for the challenge.”
