The Arena League has signed another player from the NFL.

Browns WR Rod Windsor becomes the latest player to jump ship, following in the footsteps of Cowboys WR Troy Bergeron.

"We assumed there would be players that would join the AFL. We are not sure how big the influx will be," AFL commissioner Jerry B. Kurz said in a statement. "We are confident that the NFL issues will be resolved and they will play this season. We work well in conjunction with the NFL and they have supported us and our players greatly."

Windsor is the second player to make the switch since the lockout.

The way we see it

The two players that have jumped to the Arena League were practice-squad players. It won't be a big issue unless NFL starters begin to depart.
