The Pittsburgh Power continued to remake their roster Thursday, acquiring 6-foot-4 wide receiver Prechae Rodriguez from the Orlando Predators for linemen Ben Ossai and Markell Carter.
Rodriguez, a two-year Arena Football League veteran from Auburn, has been his team's best receiver in each of the past two seasons. He set an Orlando record last year with 41 touchdown receptions while catching 119 passes for 1,614 yards. In 2012, he led the Tampa Bay Storm in receiving yards (1,653) and touchdowns (32) and set a franchise record with 125 receptions.
