Former BYU wide receiver Jordan Leslie, who has been on six different NFL rosters since his lone season in Provo in 2014, knows his next pro destination.
Leslie announced on Twitter that he is signing with the Salt Lake Stallions of the Alliance of American Football, which kicks off its inaugural season in February 2019.
“I hope all my fans are ready to match me play again,” Leslie tweeted. “I’m here to prove that I DESERVE this and so much more.”
Leslie, who joined the Cougars as a graduate transfer from UTEP in 2014, most recently played for the Denver Broncos, before being released during final cuts prior to this season.
On Dec. 15, Leslie shared a photo that included him and four other BYU players — including receivers Colby Pearson and Devon Blackmon, as well as linebacker Manoa Pikula and safety Micah Hannemann — who Leslie said worked out for the Stallions.
Leslie is the fourth former Cougar to join the Stallions roster, including offensive guard Tuni Kanuch, tight end Tanner Balderree and defensive tackle Handsome Tanielu.Comment on this story
Leslie has one career NFL regular-season catch, a one-handed 26-yarder for the Cleveland Browns in 2016. He’s spent most of his time in the pros as an NFL offseason or practice squad player, with teams including Minnesota, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Tennessee, Cleveland and Denver.
Leslie has seen time in the preseason the past four years in the NFL. In his final game with the Broncos, Leslie had five catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in Denver’s preseason win over Arizona on Aug. 30.
The Stallions recently wrapped up a mini-camp and will head to San Antonio in the new year for a league-wide training camp. Salt Lake opens the season at the Arizona Hotshots on Feb. 10.
