GREENSBORO –The Cobras have added a new addition to their receiving corps. The team has acquired wide receiver, LaVon Pearson, from the Massachusetts Pirates in return for future considerations. The former Tennessee Volunteers starter accumulated 802 yards and 8 touchdowns in two seasons during his college career.

During Pearson’s time with the Pirates, he became one of the team’s star players, recording 1,011 yards on the 2018 season, and 22 touchdowns. This season, Pearson has recorded 145 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns over the team’s first four games. He looks to turn things around now that he’s with the Cobras. On being traded, Pearson had to say, “I’m looking forward to making a big contribution, and bringing a title back to Greensboro”.
