Former Panthers QB Matt Corral signs with UFL’s Birmingham Stallions

Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Corral has resurfaced . . . in another league.

As announced on Tuesday night, Corral has signed with the Birmingham Stallions of the United Football League. The Ole Miss standout was selected by Carolina in the third round of the 2022 NFL draft.

To get to that spring’s 94th overall pick for Corral, the Panthers traded a 2023 third-rounder and a 2022 fourth-rounder (137th overall) to the New England Patriots. The Patriots, in turn, used those picks to take Western Kentucky quarterback Bailey Zappe in 2022 and Sacramento State linebacker Marte Marpu in 2023.

After missing the entirety of what would have been his rookie campaign due to a Lisfranc injury, Corral was waived by the Panthers on Aug. 30, 2023. He’d then be claimed, funnily enough, by the Patriots and released later that September.

The UFL, a product of the merger between the XFL and the USFL, will kick off its first season at the end of March.
