The Dallas Renegades have added a quarterback to their roster after an injury to Landry Jones earlier this week by signing ex-Syracuse signal-caller Eric Dungey.
Dungey’s signing was made official by the XFL Twitter account:
It was announced on Tuesday (January 7, 2020) that expected Renegades starting quarterback Jones suffered a left knee injury during training camp that will sideline him for four to six weeks. Now, with only one other quarterback on their roster in Philip Nelson, the Renegades were forced to go out and pick up Dungey to fill the spot.
Dungey played his college football for Syracuse from 2015 to 2018. In that time he broke Ryan Nassib’s school record for career passing yards with 9,340. He went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft before being signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent. The Giants released him before the end of the season.
After a brief stint on the practice squad of the Cleveland Browns, which ended after he was released in December, Dallas has now given Dungey an opportunity with the XFL.
