The Nebraska Danger Indoor Professional Football Team picked up six new players for the 2015 season, highlighted by a pair of former Tennessee Titans and a local Nebraskan.
David Gilbert, a 6'5" defensive lineman, was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Titans in 2014. Gilbert was an honorable mention All-Big 10 selection at the University of Wisconsin as a redshirt junior in 2012. After graduating from Wisconsin, Gilbert transferred to the University of Miami for his final year of eligibility.
Finishing his career as Texas Christian University's all-time leader in yards per carry (6.42), Waymon James was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tennessee Titans. Before meeting in Titans mini-camp, James & Gilbert met on field for the first time as opponents in the 2011 Rose Bowl.
"Picking up two guys that have spent time in the NFL is huge for us. Guys with that level of experience understand how to compete and that helps to make the entire team stronger," said Danger head coach Mike Davis.
Davis also signed a pair of offensive linemen, Dillon Carmichael and Jarien Moreland. Carmichael, a native of Loomis, Nebraska, earned NAIA All-American honors while at Doane College. Moreland started college at Florida A&M and then transferred to Southern Illinois University upon graduation.
Two skill position players, DeAndre Cooper and Ike Williams, also signed their commitment to the Nebraska Danger. "Cooper & Williams are great guys to have. They are both going to work really hard to make the final roster which in turn forces everyone else prepare that much harder too," Davis said.
The 2015 season will begin for the Danger on Sunday, March 1 in Wisconsin versus the Green Bay Blizzard. The Danger return to the Bone Yard on March 7 to take on the expansion Wichita Falls Nighthawks with kickoff set for 7 pm.
