Former Nebraska Cornhuskers star Ben Stille has another lease on his NFL life as a new team has picked up his contract. That and more in today’s news.
Former Nebraska Cornhuskers defensive star Ben Still got his second chance to make an impression at the next level. He’s signed a new contract with the Arizona Cardinals after being claimed on waivers on Thursday.
Still played his first season in the NFL with two teams, the Cleveland Browns and the Miami Dolphins. While playing sparingly, he did appear in seven games and had five tackles. Now he’ll try to get even more playing time for the Cardinals next season.
Stille was a solid, if unspectacular, part of the Nebraska football defense from 2017 to 2021. His best year in Lincoln was his last, when he logged 42 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Over his Huskers career, he totaled 149 tackles and 14.5 sacks.
Another preferred walk-on for Nebraska football
Earlier this week, the Huskers got another preferred walk-on who seems like he could be a decent addition eventually. Jacob Bower announced he’d committed to the Huskers after playing his high school ball in California.
Bower plays linebacker and will at least try and stick at that position with Nebraska.
Other Nebraska Cornhuskers news
- A pair of former Nerbaska football teammates are teaming up once again. Adding Lamar Jackson to the Kansas City Chiefs roster means he’ll get to play alongside Dicaprio Bootle. It will certainly be interesting to watch to see how much playing time either of them get in the 2023.
- Matt Rhule laid out how the contrasting fortunes of confidence and complacency will impact Nebraska’s success moving forward. He made it clear that he doesn’t feel as though bad luck is the reason teams win or lose, and he’s not going to let his players think like that, either.
