According to multiple reports, the Ravens have signed wide receiver Donte Stallworth. Stallworth, who spent 2007 with the Patriots before signing a free agent deal with the Browns, was suspended for the 2009 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after he pleaded guilty to killing a pedestrian while driving drunk in Florida. He spent 24 days in jail, but was reinstated earlier this month by Goodell. Stallworth played one season for the Browns, catching 17 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown in 2008.

According to reports in the Tallahassee Democrat, a police report was filed after an incident before Sunday's basketball game between Boston College and Florida State alleging that a BC assistant coach pushed a member of the FSU pep band.
The band member stated in writing that he was shoved by BC assistant Bonzie Colson. According to a report taken by an off-duty trooper working the event the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center, the student said: “I ... was exiting the basketball court and found myself stuck between the media table and the basketball team.

I looked at him and said, ‘Excuse me.’ He took his hands, one on each of my shoulders, and shoved me by him.” The student said Colson told him: “Get the [expletive] off my court.”
The newspaper quoted BC sports information director Chris Cameron as saying: "Boston College athletics officials met with...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said that right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka felt some discomfort in his mid-upper back while throwing on flat ground on Friday. Though the team considers the issue a minor one, it decided to proceed in a conservative fashion, awaiting the arrival of team physician Dr. Thomas Gill, who is scheduled to arrive in Fort Myers to perform physicals on all Red Sox pitchers starting on Friday.
Thought the Sox do not consider the issue one that will prevent Matsuzaka from having what Epstein called a normal spring training with a full workload, the team was mindful of the 2009 season, when preparations for the World Baseball Classic created physical issues that lingered over the course of the entire season. Given that history, the team will wait until the pitcher is more thoroughly evaluated before establishing a throwing schedule.
"We decided not to let him do much until...
A Scottish terrier was named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club championship in New York, but the event was interrupted during the final judging by two PETA protesters trying to publicize the plight of the nation's less-fortunate dogs. For more on that story, plus links to the day's top news, videos, trivia and more, check out Wednesday's Morning Mashup.
Speaking publicly for the first time since the Red Sox signed third baseman Adrian Beltre, Mike Lowell explained that he wasn't surprised by the acquisition and was prepared for the scenario that the 35-year-old currently faces heading into his fifth spring training with the Sox. "If it wasn’t Beltre, it was going to be somebody else. That was going to happen no matter what. That was just a timing thing. It might have been the next day [after the Texas trade fell apart]. It might have been a month. But it was going to happen. I was ready and basically prepared for that."
Lowell goes on to explain that his surgically-repaired right thumb isn't healed to the point where he can begin hitting, although he has started throwing. He offers an update on the right hip that has hindered him the past...
