Maurice Clarett is expected to begin practicing with the team Monday night after spending the day with team officials and the UFL Commissioner Michael Huyghue.
“I am humbled by the opportunity the Omaha Nighthawks have given me and will dedicate myself on and off the field to prove that I can be a valuable member of the team and the Omaha community,” Clarett said in a statement. “I am committed to working hard to earn the right for a second chance in football and more importantly in life.”
Clarett, 26, needed a judge’s permission to leave Ohio to work out for the Nighthawks. He was allowed to be out of state for 30 days.
