Reports: Cowboys, Panthers eye UFL players

Hakeem Butler

The Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers are reportedly looking to the UFL ranks this offseason, with one team interested in defense and the other in offense.

The Cowboys, who lost linebacker Leighton Vander Esch to retirement, are going to work out linebacker Willie Harvey Jr. of the St. Louis Battlehawks, according to NFL Media. In 10 games this season, Harvey led the Battlehawks with 78 tackles, including nine tackles for a loss.

Harvey, 28, was undrafted out of Iowa State before appearing in four games for the Cleveland Browns between the 2019 and 2021 seasons.

The Panthers are looking for receiving help and are expected to sign All-UFL wideout Daewood Davis of the Memphis Showboats, also per NFL Media.

Davis, who has not appeared in an NFL game, led the Showboats in catches (41) and receiving yards (446) in 10 games. His five touchdown receptions tied for the team high.

Carolina is also said to be interested in Battlehawks wide receiver Hakeem Butler, another All-UFL honoree. Butler was selected in the fourth round of the 2019 draft by the Arizona Cardinals and appeared in two games for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.

In 10 games for the Battlehawks, Butler made 10 catches for 652 yards and five scores, all team highs.
