MARTINSBURG, W.Va — DeJuan Neal is a name that Shepherd Football fans will remember. Neal was a cornerstone of the Rams defense from 2014-2018.


He served as a team captain in his senior season and gained first-team All-Conference and third-team All-Region honors in 2018. Neal also wrangled up 103 solo tackles over his career.


After Shepherd, DeJuan Neal was drafted and signed a contract to play in the USFL with the New Jersey Generals. He made a big impact, gathering up 14 tackles (11 of those this season) – but Neal won’t be getting any more USFL action this year.


It was released, by his agent, that DeJuan Neal has signed with the NFL’s Washington Commanders.

Neal steps into a defense that had a tough go of it last year, even with high expectations coming out of the off-season. Keep an eye out in the pre-season for Neal to make his move.
