Report: A-Rod likely finished with Yankees

According to a report in the New York Daily News, Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to ever play for the Yankees again.

Numerous baseball sources tell the Daily News that Rodriguez, still owed $114 million over five years on his contract, will not recover from the hip surgery he had earlier this month. It is the second hip surgery for the 37-year-old Rodriguez, and sources familiar with the situation believe the surgery will leave the third baseman in such a diminished role that he may consider a settlement or an outright retirement.

“I don’t know why he would want to go through the pain of rehabbing and trying to play up to the caliber of player he was, and come back to a game where nobody wants him,” a baseball official...

Ravens' Reed eyes chance to play for Belichick

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has frequently discussed his appreciation for Ravens safety Ed Reed. On Wednesday, the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent made it clear he would consider giving Belichick a close-up look at his skills.

“Yeah, I could definitely play for coach Belichick,” Reed said, in response to a question about the possibility of playing in New England. “He is a great coach. I’m sure he can help me to expand my football knowledge even more as a player and as a coach. So, if I’m ever able to be around him, just like I was at the Pro Bowl, it’s huge.”

Reed’s respect for Belichick extends to his choice of clothing.

“It’s the reason why I wear my sweater cut off a little bit,” Reed said. “He’s the first guy I saw like, ‘That’s cool.’ You know, that’s cool. He cuts those sweater sleeves, and he’ll be comfortable. So there’s...

49ers player apologizes for anti-gay remarks

Niners cornerback Chris Culliver apologized Wednesday night for comments he made during Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day, when he implied that the team would not accept a gay teammate.

“I don’t do the gay guys, man, I don’t do that,” Culliver said in a radio interview with Artie Lange, adding: “We ain’t got no gay people on the team. They got to get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”

Culliver also said a player would need to keep his homosexuality a secret while playing, and “come out 10 years later.”

The team quickly rejected the comments, and Wednesday night...
