NFL fines Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000 (Yahoo Sports)
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin's ill-timed two-step has cost him $100,000 and could cost his team a pick in next year's draft. The league fined Tomlin $100,000 on Wednesday for interfering with a play against the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving. The NFL also said it would consider docking Pittsburgh a draft pick ''because the conduct affected a play on the field.'' Tomlin was not penalized on the play, though the NFL said Tomlin should have been flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct for nearly colliding with Baltimore's Jacoby Jones during a kickoff return midway through the third quarter of a 22-20 Ravens victory. The seventh-year head coach called the play ''embarrassing, inexcusable, illegal and a blunder'' but stressed it was not intentional.
FSU's Winston voted ACC player of year (Yahoo Sports)
Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has picked up two more individual awards from the Atlantic Coast Conference. The ACC on Wednesday selected Winston as both its overall and offensive player of the year, one day after he was picked as rookie of the year. Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald also was voted the ACC's defensive player of the year. Winston is the first redshirt freshman in the 61-year history of the league to win the award.
Tigers finalize deal with Joe Nathan (Yahoo Sports)
The Detroit Tigers agreed to terms with free agent reliever Joe Nathan on a two-year contract with a club option for 2016 on Wednesday, accomplishing one of their main objectives this offseason by adding one of baseball's most accomplished closers to the bullpen. The three-time defending AL Central champions announced the deal two days after trading right-hander Doug Fister to Washington. It's been a busy offseason already for Detroit, which traded slugger Prince Fielder to Texas for Ian Kinsler in a move that, coupled with the trade of Fister, gave the Tigers more financial flexibility. Detroit's bullpen was unsettled for much of last season.
Mettenberger's LSU career ends with knee injury (Yahoo Sports)
LSU has announced that Zach Mettenberger's playing career with the Tigers is officially over. Mettenberger injured his left knee while unloading a 32-yard completion in the fourth quarter of No. 14 LSU's 31-27 victory over Arkansas last Friday, and LSU coach Les Miles confirmed the severity of the injury on Wednesday. Shortly after Friday's game, Miles initially expressed hope that Mettenberger's injury did not involve any torn ligaments and that he'd be ready to return for a bowl game that the Tigers will likely play in January, depending on the bowl bid they accept this Sunday. Instead, Mettenberger will require surgery and his rehabilitation will take place when he would have been preparing for next spring's NFL draft.
Lundqvist agrees to long extension with Rangers (Yahoo Sports)
Just two days after surprisingly watching from the bench for a second straight game, No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist agreed to a long-term contract extension with the New York Rangers on Wednesday. Lundqvist, in the final season of a six-year, $41.25 million deal, agreed to a seven-year contract reportedly worth $59.5 million. His salary-cap charge would rise from $6.875 million to $8.5 million and make him the NHL's highest-paid goalie. ''About eight months ago I sat down for the first time with my family and my agent and kind of discussed my future,'' Lundqvist said Wednesday after practice.
Konerko stays with White Sox (Yahoo Sports)
Veteran slugger Paul Konerko is returning to the Chicago White Sox. The team announced Wednesday that the six-time American League All-Star agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract, opting to come back for another season rather than retire or sign elsewhere. The 37-year-old Konerko will receive $1.5 million in 2014 and $1 million in 2021 under the deal. The White Sox won just 63 games last season after finishing second in the AL Central the previous year, and Konerko struggled in a big way.
Arrowhead parking lot death ruled a homicide (Yahoo Sports)
The death of a Missouri man in an Arrowhead Stadium parking lot during Kansas City's game this weekend was ruled a homicide Wednesday, but police said it could still take weeks before they know what killed him. Kyle Van Winkle, 30, of Smithville, was unconscious on the ground when police responded to a disturbance call around 5:20 p.m. in Lot A at Truman Sports Complex, where Arrowhead is located. In announcing the Jackson County medical examiner's ruling Wednesday, police spokesman Darin Snapp said that wouldn't change how the case is being handled. Van Winkle, the son of a police sergeant, apparently left the stadium early in the game and went to the parking lot, where he got into a Jeep that looked like the vehicle he came to the game in, Kansas City police spokesman Tye Grant said.
Vikings QB Cassel on track to start for Ponder (Yahoo Sports)
Matt Cassel is on track to start this week at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, with Christian Ponder recovering from a concussion. Coach Leslie Frazier said Wednesday that Cassel ''more than likely'' will start instead of Ponder when the Vikings play at Baltimore on Sunday. Cassel took over late in the second quarter last week when Ponder was hit in the head and passed for 243 yards in half of a game to help the Vikings beat Chicago in overtime.
AP Source: Yanks, Ellsbury reach $153M, 7-yr deal (Yahoo Sports)
Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Ellsbury is the second major free-agent addition in the Yankees' offseason rebuilding after missing the playoffs for just the second time in 19 years. The center fielder was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday that he must pass before the deal can be finalized, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The Yankees also had been negotiating with outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who like Ellsbury is represented by agent Scott Boras.
