Former Columbus Lions wide receiver and ex-Shaw High star Troy Bergeron signs with Cleveland Gladiators of AFL


Former Columbus Lions wide receiver Troy Bergeron isn’t waiting on the NFL labor negotiations to work itself out. He signed to play for the Cleveland Gladiators of the Arena Football League.

Bergeron, a former Shaw standout, signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys a little more than a month ago, but with no guarantee of a 2010 season, he returned to something familiar. He was the league’s Rookie of the Year in 2005.

Bergeron has had stints with the Buffalo Bills and the Atlanta Falcons.
