  • Chiefs, running back Jamaal Charles reach deal

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:51 pm
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles has agreed to a contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs announced the deal Wednesday night. The two-year extension runs through the 2017 season, a person familiar with the contract said on condition of anonymity because the team didn't disclose terms of the contract. The six-year NFL veteran ran for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last year to help the Chiefs reach the playoffs. He also had 70 catches for 693 yards and seven more TDs as Kansas City went 11-5 before losing to Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game.
  • Johnny Be Good: Browns expect Manziel to behave

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:07 pm
    BEREA, Ohio (AP) Johnny will be good. That's what the Browns expect from Johnny Manziel now that training camp is about to start. Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said he's not worried about the popular rookie's wild off-field behavior carrying into the season, and he's determined not to let any outside influences affect his decision in picking either Manziel or veteran Brian Hoyer to be his starting quarterback. Pettine, who will open his first training camp on Saturday, discussed Manziel, Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon's clouded situation and several other topics during an interview with…
  • Jerry Jones: Garrett not coaching for job

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:03 pm
    OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Jerry Jones doesn't like to repeat his good sound bites, so he found a new way to say Jason Garrett isn't coaching for his job. The Dallas Cowboys owner said Wednesday it wasn't a "make or break" season for Garrett, a year after opening training camp by declaring that last season wouldn't be "Armageddon" for his coach if the once-proud franchise missed the playoffs again. The Cowboys have identical endings to all three full seasons under Garrett, losing to NFC East rivals to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs. This time, Garrett is in the final year of his contract. While…
  • Broncos owner giving up control due to Alzheimer's

    23 Jul 2014 | 2:34 pm
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Even as dementia began to rob him of some of his fondest memories over the past few years, Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen reported to work every day to oversee multimillion-dollar upgrades to the team's training facilities and roster. So his absence from Dove Valley headquarters on Wednesday as players reported for physicals on the eve of training camp was as jarring as the announcement that the 70-year-old Bowlen was giving up control of the team because of Alzheimer's disease. "This place will never be the same," a choked-up general manager John Elway said. "... It's…
  • Andre Johnson's holdout could cloud Texans camp

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:10 pm
    HOUSTON (AP) As the Houston Texans prepare for the start of training camp on Saturday, their biggest question mark involves a player who probably won't be there when they take the field. Disgruntled receiver Andre Johnson skipped offseason workouts and mandatory minicamp after wondering in May if Houston was "still the place for me." A holdout by the face of the franchise and the team's longest-tenured player could cast a pall on the beginning of coach Bill O'Brien's first season. O'Brien has tried to downplay the situation so far, but that tact will be much more difficult if Johnson's…

  • Kirilenko ends engagement to NHL star Ovechkin

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:01 am
    MOSCOW (AP) Another sports power couple's engagement is off. Two months after golfer Rory McIlroy broke off his engagement to Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko says she has called off her planned wedding to three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals. The two had been together since 2011 and became engaged in December 2012. Kirilenko says in comments distributed by the Russian Tennis Federation that there were "a lot of reasons" behind her decision. She says "our relationship is over, but I respect Sasha (Ovechkin) as a person and as…
  • AP sources: Bon Jovi part of group eyeing Bills

    19 Jul 2014 | 8:50 am
    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Rocker Jon Bon Jovi is part of a Toronto group that has retained a banking firm and submitted paperwork expressing interest in buying the Buffalo Bills, three people who have reviewed documents regarding the sale process told The Associated Press on Friday. It is unclear if the group would eventually want to move the NFL team to Toronto. The club is on the market after Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson died in March. The three people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the process is private and the Toronto group has not revealed its…

  • Seattle gives Make-A-Wish recipient chance to play

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:09 pm
    SEATTLE (AP) Xander Bailey stood at midfield with Seattle star Clint Dempsey at his side Saturday, waiting for kickoff against Tottenham. When the whistle blew, the 18-year-old Bailey - a Make-A-Wish recipient from Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia - took the pass from Dempsey, dribbled down the field and took a shot on former U.S. national team goalkeeper Brad Friedel. He was then subbed off in front of 55,349 to a massive ovation while being mobbed by Seattle teammates. "To give him this opportunity is just fantastic. I saw the look in his eyes and you could just tell he was…
