Former Indiana University Running Back Stevie Scott III signs with Denver Broncos
Fromer Indiana University Running Back Stevie Scott III, who played this spring for the Michigan Panthers in the United States Football League has made the leap to the NFL. He put up solid numbers for the Panthers in the USFL this season, and now signs a deal with the Denver Broncos heading into preseason. Scott had a good year for Michigan. While slightly overshadowed by the likes of Reggie Corbin, Stevie was a consistent force for the Panthers throughout 2022. He finished the season with 313 yards, averaging 3.1YPC. On top of that, he scored three touchdowns. Between Corbin and Scott, Michigan had one of the USFL’s strongest backfields.

Interestingly enough, this isn’t his first time with the Denver Broncos. Scott was with Denver back in 2021, but ultimately never saw the football field during the season. Now, due to his impressive performances in the USFL – and the national exposure the league provided him with, he ends up back in the NFL with the Broncos.
