AROUND THE WEB:
– Jonathan Martin has a new home, and it’s a familiar one.
The Dolphins traded the offensive lineman to the 49ers, where he will be reunited with Jim Harbaugh, who coached him at nearby Stanford and called him a “personal friend” following last year’s bullying scandal in Miami. San Francisco will send an undisclosed draft pick to the Dolphins.
Martin, who has been taking classes at Stanford, expressed his excitement on Twitter, writing: Big news…. Beyond Blessed.
And: Opportunities are few in the NFL… Can’t wait to get to work #9erEmpire
Added his agent, Ken Zuckerman, in an interview with The Associated Press: “This is great for him to get back on the field, and he’s in Palo Alto right now. It couldn’t be much better. I just think everyone wanted this to happen. Harbaugh knows Jonathan, I think the Dolphins were compensated and Jonathan wants to get back on the field. It’s a good day.”
Martin, 24, has two years remaining on his contract, which pays him a base salary of $824,933 this year.
“There’s been a lot of ‘¦ this, that and the other … but the hatchet hasn’t been buried,” said Williams, who now caddies for Adam Scott. “It’s just personal things and a difference of opinions on how things went down … and I need to sort that out with him.”
Williams was Woods’ caddie when the golf star was caught up in an infidelity scandal in 2009, but he claimed to be unaware of what Woods was doing.
“So many people feel I must have known something, but I didn’t know,” he said. “If I’d known something, I would have said [so]. I don’t sugarcoat anything.”
– A high school wrestling match in Minnesota ended with an impressive display of sportsmanship when Blaine sophomore Malik Stewart was pinned by St. Michael Albertville sophomore Mitchell McKee in the state championship 120-pound match but then went over to McKee’s father, who is dying of cancer, and congratulated him.
“[McKee] won,” Stewart told KARE-TV. “He was pretty proud, and his dad was pretty proud. So I went over there and I shook his hand, embraced it a little bit, and told him to stay strong and everybody loves him.”
Added Stewart, whose father died of a heart attack when Stewart was 7 years old: “I got a little teary because I lost the match, and I knew the hard times he was going through. The crowd went wild and I heard a couple of people say after I did it, ‘ That was pretty classy,’ but I just did it straight from the heart.”
Said McKee of Stewart: “It was a big match for him, and to be able to hug my dad like that and not be mad and storm off like a lot of kids do — really respectful.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It’s pretty emotional when you see your teammate collapse like that. We have some young guys on the team and it’s a lot more difficult for them because they haven’t been through things the older guys have been through. You’ve got to help them through that.” – Stars forward Vernon Fiddler, one day after teammate Rich Peverly collapsed on the bench Monday night with a cardiac event
