Atkins, who played for Georgia from 2013 to 2017, racked up 81 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and five pass breakups in his UGA career.
The Thomson, Ga., native went undrafted in 2018 but signed an undrafted free agent deal with the New England Patriots the same year.
Atkins spent time with the Detroit Lions and most recently the Atlanta Falcons before this move to the USFL. He joins former Georgia tackle Tyler Catalina with the Bandits.
The league currently set to begin on April 16 and run through July 3. Games will be broadcast on Fox, NBC and USA.
