Arena Football League Cleveland Gladiators

Joe Powell Signs With New York Giants

Cleveland Gladiators defensive back Joe Powell has signed with the New York Giants. Powell recorded 41 tackles and five interceptions during his time with the Gladiators in 2016. Three of those interceptions were returned for touchdowns.

This is not Powell’s first NFL signing this season, however. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the season. He spent time with them during rookie camsp, but was back with Cleveland by Week 12 of the Arena Football League season.

The Gladiators finished the regular season with a 7-9 record. They defeated the Los Angeles KISS in the first round of the playoffs before being eliminated in a bitter loss to the Arizona Rattlers in the National Conference Championship Game.
