Jordan Ta’amu Leads the USFL in Passing Yards


We have seen multiple start-up professional football leagues over the past few years. However, the USFL is the first in recent history to finish its regular season, meaning we will have league awards for the regular season. We have tracked 2022 USFL Stats all season long. After 10 long weeks, it was Tampa Bay Bandits quarterback Jordan Ta’amu who finished as the USFL season as the passing leader.

Jordan Ta’amu Finishes USFL Season as Passing Leader

Coming into the 2022 USFL season, many fans pegged Jordan Ta’amu as the best quarterback in the USFL. He had recently played well in the XFL with the St. Louis BattleHawks, then he spent time on multiple NFL records.

While we can question if Ta’amu was the best quarterback in the USFL this season, we cannot question his stats. In the end, he led the USFL in passing yards, totaling 2,015. He was the only quarterback to throw for over 2,000 yards.

Jordan Ta’amu finished the USFL season with 2,015 passing yards, 14 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also did some damage with his legs, running for another 365 yards and a touchdown. Ta’amu finished the season ninth in rushing yards.
