Renegades Trade WR Stacy Coley For Vipers WR Freddie Martino

As coaching staffs try to hone down their rosters in training camp, Bob Stoops and the Dallas Renegades have swapped WR’s with the Tampa Bay Vipers. Stacy Coley-Miami has been shipped out in exchange for Freddie Martino-North Greenville.

Coley and Martino are both good receivers who were productive in college and have spent time in the pros, but each team must’ve felt the others’ talents better suited their offense.

Freddy Martino was a D-II standout who amassed 296 receptions, 4,166 yards from scrimmage and 31 touchdowns in 4 seasons. He’s been on the Falcons, Eagles and Buccaneers in the NFL, where he logged 238 yards and a score from 2016-2017. He most recently played in the AAF, where he saw some action with the Arizona Hotshots.

At 28 he’s in his physical prime, and brings a steady veteran presence to a Renegades WR corps that features young talents like Jeff Badet and Jerrod Heard. As Stacy Coley offered a lot of upside as well, it may seem like a lateral move, but the Renegades did well to add experience to their offense here.

Matt Nagashima has been covering the XFL since before the 2019 Draft, and has witnessed history being made as a Credentialed Reporter for the Dallas Renegades. While he is engrossed with the X's and O's, the roster building and more, it has always been his goal to keep the players first in mind in coverage, showing the human aspect of this sport behind all the action on the field. With Dany Garcia and Dwayne The Rock Johnson now at the helm, he's excited to see all the opportunities that this league will create for players to showcase their talent and make their dreams come true.
