I ran into former UB defensive tackle Dane Robinson who told me he agreed to a contract for next season with the Columbus Lions of the Southern Indoor Football League. Listed on the Lions roster is linebacker Melvin Parris, who played at Buffalo State.
Robinson started six games last season and finished with 13 tackles.
"I'm just trying to take the same path as (former UB players) Jeff Niedermeier and Ray Norell who are playing arena football," Robinson said. "Hopefully it will work out."
