The addition of Nigel Vega is expected to bolster the wide receiver position for Texas, providing much-needed speed. In return for Vega, the Bruisers have traded away their struggling starting QB, Kingsley Cooke. In his two recent games, Cooke’s performance has been marked by a lopsided touchdown-to-interception ratio, with just two touchdown passes compared to six interceptions. Given these statistics, the Bruisers felt comfortable making the trade, as Cooke’s performance had been subpar.
The decision to part ways with Cooke was further facilitated by the fact that the Texas Bruisers primarily focus on a run-first style of play. The team is now pinning its hopes on Trey Coleman to step up and deliver a stronger performance than Cooke. The addition of Nigel Vega is expected to contribute to this improvement. While Vega has yet to have a breakout game, it’s important to remember that he was the most impressive wide receiver in the Backbreaker International Football League tournament.
