The first season in the USFL for former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kyle Sloter is continuing to go well as he was recently named one of the top offensive players in the league.

Kyle Sloter has had quite the journey since he was shown the door by the Minnesota Vikings before the start of the 2019 season.

Since his departure from Minnesota, Sloter has floated around on several practice squads in the NFL, and this year, he has spent the last few weeks as the starting quarterback of the New Orleans Breakers in the USFL.

Things have been going well for the former Vikings signal-caller as he is leading the USFL in passing yards after nine games and his team will be taking part in the USFL playoffs at the end of the month. Most recently, Sloter was among the players who were selected for the All-USFL Team offense.

On Thursday, the USFL revealed their picks for their offensive, defensive, and special teams All-USFL Teams. Sloter was one of 25 players to be selected to the league’s own version of the NFL All-Pro team.

He wasn’t the only former member of Minnesota’s roster to be selected as former Vikings defensive lineman Toby Johnson was named to the All-USFL Team defense as well.

In nine games this year, Sloter has averaged almost 200 yards per matchup. However, he’s also thrown nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions, which has resulted in a 70.5 passer rating.

So even though Sloter was selected to the All-USFL Team offense this year and he’s helped the Breakers earn a playoff spot, he still has plenty to work on if he wants to get back to the NFL.

At the very least though, Sloter has shown that he deserves a shot to compete in an NFL team’s training camp this summer.
