Browns' Rod Windsor signs with AFL team

Due to the lockout, a Cleveland Browns receiver has bolted to the Arena Football League. Rod Windsor, who spent time on Cleveland's practice squad in 2010, signed this week with the Arizona Rattlers.

Windsor remains under contract with the Browns, but with no collective bargaining agreement in place, players are free to sign with other leagues. Other more high-profile players in the AFC North such as Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco and Baltimore Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski have opted for soccer and boxing, respectively.
