Caesar Rayford played for the last four seasons with an impressive 2.5 sacks. The big 6' 7" defensive end out of Washington now gets his chance to see what he has in the big boy's league, albeit in a different position, according to the Colts official website. The Indianapolis Colts have signed him to a deal and will look to slot him in as an outside linebacker. The signing comes as they released another non-NFLer, IFL's linebacker Jake Killeen, who was signed to a reserve/future contract on January 10, 2013. Per Colts.com: ' Rayford, 6-7, 265 pounds, spent the last three seasons with the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League where he totaled 68 tackles, 22.5 sacks, 26.5 tackles for loss, 16 passes defensed, seven forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries and two interceptions returned for touchdowns. He also blocked six kicks, including an AFL single-season record five in 2011. In 2012, Rayford started all 18 games and recorded 21 tackles (17 solo), 7.5 sacks, seven tackles for loss, three passes defensed, one forced fumble and one blocked kick. Prior to joining the Blaze, he played for the Spokane Shock of the AFL and the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League. '
