One day after all UFL teams made their first round of cuts to their training camp rosters, the Brahmas signed outside linebacker Tarell Basham, according to a press release from the UFL.

During the first round of roster cuts, the Brahmas cut 19 players, which reduced their training camp roster down from 75 players to 56 players. UFL teams can have 58 players on their roster until the second roster cuts occur at the end of training camp. With that two-player margin, the Brahmas have taken advantage of the opportunity to add talent to high-need areas on their roster.

On the same day that all UFL cut players, the Brahmas also added wide receiver Matt Landers after the Arlington Renegades had cut him. Landers brought the Brahmas roster from 56 players to 57. Brahmas have chosen to fill that roster spot with outside linebacker/defensive end Basham after San Antonio had cut All-XFL defensive end Drew Beesley from their training camp roster.

Tarell Basham is a 6’4″, 266-pound outside linebacker/defensive end from Rocky Mount, Virginia. Basham played college football at Ohio University from 2013 until 2016. While playing for the Bobcats, Basham played in 51 games, recording 157 total tackles and 26.5 quarterback sacks.

In 2017, the Indianapolis Colts drafted Basham in the 3rd round of the NFL draft. Basham played with the Colts (2017-2018), the New York Jets (2018-2020), the Dallas Cowboys (2021-2022), and the Tennessee Titans (2022), and he spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2023 NFL season. Since 2017, Basham played in 82 NFL games, where he recorded 128 total tackles, 11.0 quarterback sacks, intercepted one pass, forced five fumbles, and deflected seven passes.
