The Richmond Roughriders have announced the signing of wide receiver Lonnie Outlaw. He recently played in the Arena Football League with the Philadelphia Soul and the Cleveland Gladiators.
“Outlaw will be a true asset to our already great receiving core. The combination of his height, speed, and AFL experience will create matchup problems all season,” Richmond Roughriders Owner/General Manager Gregg Fornario said, per the team’s Facebook post.
The Gladiators recently suspended operations until the 2020 season due to renovations going on during the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
Richmond is one of 12 teams that will play in the inaugural season of the American Arena League. The league is a merge of the Arena Pro Football and the Can-Am Indoor Football League. Their season kicks off on March 17 and the title game will be played on Saturday, June 30.
