According to a press release by UFL Communications, the San Antonio Brahmas have placed Nigerian offensive lineman Haggai Chisom Ndubuisi on waivers.

The Brahmas signed Ndubuisi on February 2nd after following a unique path to the world of professional football. The 6’7″, 323-pound native of Nigeria had spent time with the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals after being a part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program. Before joining the IPPP, Ndubuisi had not played football and only played soccer and basketball.

Elite size and athleticism allowed Ndubuisi to pursue opportunities with NFL teams. Still, after spending two seasons on practice squads, Ndubuisi caught the attention of the Brahmas. Ndubuisi has previously played nose tackle and offensive tackle, but the UFL had Ndubuisi listed as an offensive guard. With the Brahmas determining that Ndubuisi is not a fit for their roster, it will be interesting to see if other UFL teams pursue Ndubuisi.
