ELF: WR Jéan Constant moves to the Hamburg Sea Devils

The Hamburg Sea Devils of the European League of Football have signed the league’s top receiver in Jéan Constant.

Constant is coming off of a statistically dominant season with the Barcelona Dragons, leading the league in catches and receiving yards. For one of the league’s top playmakers winning remains his focus:

“Ultimately, it came down to being part of a winning program, I couldn’t pass up on that opportunity”, Constant added “I expect us to be back in the running for a championship but with different results next season.”

The 5’9″, 180-pound receiver led the ELF with 75 catches for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns while playing for the Barcelona Dragons. In addition to being the league’s top pass catcher, Constant’s speed played a huge factor on special teams as the former NCAA All-American return man added 1,165 return yards. Overall, speed demon racked up nine scores, 2,246 all-purpose yards, and a Week 6 MVP award for his 242 yard and three-touchdown performance against the Berlin Thunder. Moving on from the Dragons to the Sea Devils means that Constant will have two chances to face his old team:

“Hamburg Sea Devils vs. Barcelona Dragons will be must watch TV.  Fans will be on their feet for most of the game, we have some great players”.

The 25-year-old native of Delray Beach, Florida spent the first three years of his collegiate career (2016-18) at Bryant (NCAA Div. I, FCS) where he was named to multiple All American teams after the 2017 and 2018 seasons including the Walter Camp, Phil Steele and STATS All American Teams. He finished his career with the Bulldogs with 1,336 career receiving yards on 107 receptions while recording 1,694 return yards, reaching the end zone 23 times. Playing for the Stony Brook Seawolves (NCAA Div. I FCS) in 2019, he appeared in nine games with seven starts, amassing 919 all-purpose yards. He had 28 catches for 439 yards and five touchdowns while returning 18 kickoffs ad 18 kick returns for 338 yards and 13 punts for 146 yards. He had a touchdown catch in five straight games.

Constant’s move from sunny Spain to Hamburg is the latest move in a busy off-season for the Sea Devils. The speedster joins an offense led by veteran coach Kirk Heidelberg who comes in as Hamburg’s new offensive coordinator. Heidelberg’s offense will be quarterbacked by German passer Salieu Ceesay (Azusa Pacific NCAA D2), who will be looking to get the ball to former Atlanta Falcons receiver Lamar Jordan II, Constant, and British running back Glenn Toonga.
