Jones is an NFL veteran who has had stints with the likes of the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, and Indianapolis Colts. He also spent time with the Alliance of American Football (AAF), playing for the Atlanta Legends, before the league went under. Jones was drafted by the Vipers in October, before being cut earlier this month. Now, Tampa has decided to reunite with the pass catcher.
Therezie, another NFL veteran, was drafted in the ninth round during phase four of the 2020 XFL Draft by the Vipers. However, he was waived during final cuts in January. Therezie was signed by Team Nine, where he spent his time before being re-signed by the Vipers.
The Vipers’ latest acquisition, Trey Caldwell, who was acquired from St. Louis, is also an NFL veteran, having spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans. Caldwell was drafted by the BattleHawks before now being sent to Tampa. As for Gwacham, he was placed on injured reserve at the beginning of the season, and will now return to action.
