Who Was Released:

Wright was a dispersal draft pick by St. Louis after spending 2022 with the Seattle Sea Dragons. Wright appeared in Five games recording 12 tackles for Seattle before the team was disbanded.

Who Was Signed:

Two replace the above mentioned players, St. Louis added Teton Saltes, and Channing Stribling, both players have spent several years in spring football with Saltes starting games for the Michigan Panthers and Champion Arlington Renegades. Stribling who at this point is a spring football main stay, joins his 11th Pro Football Franchise spanning over Six leagues since coming out of Michigan in 2017. Stribling unites with his former Stars Coach Martin Bayless who is now the Defensive Backs Coach for Anthony Becht’s Battlehawks.
