Firecats Complete Trade with Cincinnati

Estero, FL- The Florida Firecats completed a trade with the Cincinnati Jungle Kats sending defensive lineman Damien Haye to the Queen City. Last week the Jungle Kats traded defensive back James McCoy to the Firecats for future considerations.

In the trade the Firecats acquired a defensive player with af2 experience in McCoy. Last season McCoy led the South Georgia Wildcats with 96.5 tackles and 4 fumble recoveries as a rookie.

“He was definitely one of the better defensive players we faced last year,” Firecats Head Coach Kevin Bouis said of McCoy. “He came in a few days ago and has really been picking up the system; he has a lot of potential. The battle for a roster spot in our secondary is going to be heated; I’m looking forward to Saturday to see how everyone performs.”

Florida’s 1st team scrimmage will be held on Saturday March 17th in Estero. The Firecats coaching staff will begin to evaluate talent and make some decisions after the scrimmage.

The Firecats made a trade with the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz today sending former Michigan State defensive back Robert Flagg to the Dawgz for future considerations.

Florida also placed FB Fred Solomon on Re-Assignment, releasing him from the team.
