Orlando Guardians’ Star, Caeveon Patton, Secures NFL Contract with Atlanta Falcons

A significant transition has taken place in the world of football with Caeveon Patton, the renowned defensive lineman from the Orlando Guardians, signing a contract with the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL. Patton’s remarkable performance in the XFL secured him an impressive position within the NFL, exemplifying the substantial talent pool within the XFL.

Demonstrating his prowess on the field, Patton showcased an exemplary performance in the 2023 season, securing him an All-XFL recognition. His role as an interior defensive lineman was instrumental, resulting in 40 tackles, ranking him as the third-best on the Guardians’ team and seventeenth in the entire XFL league. Further displaying his defensive aptitude, Patton ranked seventh in the XFL for tackles for loss, with five to his credit.

Patton’s move to the NFL makes him the third player from the Orlando Guardians to be signed by an NFL team post-XFL season. He follows in the footsteps of wide receiver Charleston Rambo, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, and tight end Jordan Thomas, who was signed by the Carolina Panthers. This flurry of activity takes the total number of XFL players transitioning to NFL contracts to a noteworthy 43, with six contracts signed in just the past two days.

However, the Orlando Guardians have ensured they retain a foothold in Patton’s professional future, securing the rights to his play, should he choose to return to the XFL. As the transition unfolds, Patton’s journey from the Guardians to the Falcons is certainly a career progression to watch. It reaffirms the XFL as a dynamic platform for talent, capable of launching skilled players into the prestigious NFL.
