Press Release 23
RAGE SIGN FORMER FLORIDA A&M STAR
April 4, 2001

ORLANDO, Fla. Looking to add insurance at quarterback for its playoff run, the Orlando Rage selected former Florida A&M signal caller Patrick Bonner from the XFL Player Allocation and Selection System Pool on Wednesday.

Bonner attended camp with the Tampa Bay Bucs in 1999 and also spent time with the Barcelona Dragons (NFL-Europe) and the Canadian League with Winnipeg before signing with the Rage. He was placed on the Rage practice squad, where he will back-up starter Brian Kuklick and Jim Arellanes.

A former All-American for the Rattlers, Bonner played just one season for Florida A&M -- breaking nearly every single season offensive record in 1998. In 13 games, Bonner led the Rattlers to an 11-2 record and their first playoff win in 20 years.

As a senior, he threw for an incredible 4,000 yards and 42 touchdowns in earning first team All-America honors. He transferred to Florida A&M from Temple, where he played three seasons.

The Rage travel to meet the Chicago Enforcers, who have a playoff berth on the line. Kickoff is Sunday, at 7 p.m. and televised on UPN.
