The Istanbul Rams announced Australian quarterback Jared Stegman who will play for the Turkish franchise in the European League of Football in 2022.
“I’ve heard great things about the [Istanbul] Rams and they have a very successful history that I wanted to be a part of. Also, I figure Turkey, in particular Istanbul, is going to be an incredible cultural experience”, Stegman commented on signing with the Rams.
The Australian signal-caller further touched on his goals for the upcoming season in the best European football league: “Football is the ultimate team sport.
