Force starting QB RJ Archer (6’2, 225, William and Mary) was added to the Detroit Lions roster on Thursday. Archer attended the Lions mini camp last month and caught the eye of the Detroit coaches.
“It is a good opportunity for RJ,” stated head coach Dean Cokinos. “Helping players move up is what the Arena Football League is about. He was a total professional and team guy with us. This is well deserved; we wish him nothing but the best.”
Georgia has bumped up former Hawaii standout Bryant Moniz (6’0, 215, Hawaii) to fill the void, along with Tony Colston (6’4, 215, Tusculum).
The Force will be on the road again this weekend, facing the Utah Blaze on Saturday, June 23rd at 9 p.m. EST at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The game will be streamed live on Ustream.
