According to ESPN.com, the deal is worth an average of $7.5 million per season and comes with a no-trade clause.

Blue Jackets' Jack Johnson Files for Bankruptcy, Claims Parents Are Responsible


Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Despite over $30 million in earnings during his career, Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, claiming his parents are responsible for his financial troubles.

According to a report from the Columbus Dispatch, prior to signing a seven-year, $30.5 million deal in 2011, Johnson granted power of attorney to his mother, and gave her full control of his finances.

Johnson claims his mother, Tina Johnson, purchased a house in Manhattan Beach, California with his money but he never had knowledge of the transaction. Johnson also alleges his parents borrowed $15 million against his future earnings. Many of the loans carried high interest rates.

"I'd say I picked the wrong people who led me down the wrong path," Johnson told The Dispatch last week. "I've got people in place who are going to fix everything now. It's something I should have done a long time ago."

ESPN.com reports that documents were filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District Court of Ohio that show that Johnson has very little left of the millions he's made during his career, and his future earnings are compromised because of debt and interest rates.

The 27-year-old Johnson was a first round pick in 2005 and has three years left on his current deal.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson Admits a Change of Scenary May Be Best


Ronald C. Modra/Sports Imagery/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Since 2007, running back Adrian Peterson has been the face of the Minnesota Vikings franchise, but after a recent child abuse scandal, Peterson knows it might be best to move on.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Peterson said “maybe it’s best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else.”

"I would love to go back and play in Minnesota to get a feel and just see if my family still feels comfortable there,” Peterson said. “But if there’s word out that hey, they might release me, then so be it. I would feel good knowing that I’ve given everything I had in me.”

Back in September, Peterson was indicted on a felony charge of injury to a child after he used a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year. He pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless assault earlier this month.

Earlier this week, the NFL suspended Peterson for the rest of the season. He had missed the previous nine games after being placed on the commissioner's exempt list. 

Now in his eighth NFL season, Peterson has rushed for 10,190 yards during his career.

Pirated Designate Ike Davis for Assignment


BananaStock/Thinkstock(PITTSBURGH) -- Once seen as a potential All-Star caliber player, first baseman Ike Davis' fall continues as the Pittsburgh Pirates have decided to designate him for assignment.

The Pirates now have 10 days to trade or release Davis.

Davis was acquired by the Pirates back in April from the New York Mets. After struggling in recent years, some felt a chance of scenery was necessary for him.

Despite the new team, Davis' struggles continued. In 131 games with the Pirates, Davis hit .235 with 10 home runs and 46 RBIs.

During his first two seasons in Major League Baseball in 2010 and 2011, Davis showed flashes of being a power-hitting player who could also hit for average. Injuries and a bout with valley fever in 2012 wound up having more long-term damage then he had hoped. He hit 32 home runs in 2012, but has only hit 19 the past two seasons combined.

Former number two overall pick Jameson Taillon was added to the 40-man roster to replace Davis.

Tim Howard Named US Male Soccer Player of the Year


Stock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Tim Howard, goalkeeper of the United States Men's National Soccer Team, was named the 2014 U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year on Thursday.

It is the second time in his career that Howard has received the honor, first winning it in 2008.

The award, revealed on ESPN's SportsCenter, is given to the top performer from the United States National Team.

"It's pretty special to have my name up there with the greats," Howard said on SportsCenter.

Howard beat out five of his teammates to take the accolade, helping the U.S. reach the knockout stage of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil this past summer. Among the others on the ballot were Kyle Beckerman, Alejandro Bedoya, Clint Dempsey, Fabian Johnson, and Jermaine Jones.

His most memorable performance was a World Cup record 15 saves in the Round of 16 against Belgium. Howard helped to keep the match scoreless until extra time when Belgium came away with a 2-1 victory, eliminating the Americans. 

Howard has started eight consecutive matches for the U.S., earning a 3-3-1 record in 2014. This year, he became the all-time leader for starts as a goalkeeper as well as the American's all-time leader in wins with 55. 

Votes were collected from current U.S. coaches, players and staff, MLS and NASL head coaches, select media members, and former players and administrators.

Cal Routs No. 23 Syracuse, Earns Spot in 2K Classic Final


Thomas Northcut/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The California Golden Bears opened up a 12-point halftime lead, maintaining the advantage all the way until the final buzzer for a 73-59 upset win over 23rd-raked Syracuse on Thursday night.

With the victory, Cal (3-0) moves on to the finals of the annual 2K Classic against Texas on Friday at Madison Square Garden.

"We lost to them the past two years, and with guys that were returning it plays on your mind," said first-year head coach Cuonzo Martin. "But I thought our guys did a great job of accepting the challenge."

The Bears hit four consecutive three pointers late in the first half, holding a 34-22 advantage at the break. Jordan Matthews helped keep the game in control by scoring 20 of his 22 points in the second half. Meanwhile, the defense was strong against Rakeem Christmas, the leading scorer for Syracuse (2-1), holding him to just eight points before the big man fouled out. 

It was a sigh of relief when the final buzzer sounded for those associated with Cal. In each of the last two seasons, the Orange (2-1) have found ways to beat the Bears. The first came in the 2013 NCAA Elite Eight while the second was part of the Maui invitational during the 2013-14 campaign.

Both Kaleb Joseph and Michael Gbinije scored 13 points to pace Syracuse while Matthews poured in a game-high 22.

Cal will take on No. 10 Texas, who beat Iowa 71-57, in the championship game on Friday night.

NHL Postpones Buffalo Sabres Game


Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- The NHL announced on Thursday that the Buffalo Sabres home game on Friday night has been postponed due to severe lake-effect snowstorms in the area. Buffalo was scheduled to host the New York Rangers and a make-up date has not been announced.

More than five feet of snow has fallen across parts of Western New York, and as many as three more is projected to fall by Friday night. This has left many residents in and around Buffalo incapable of leaving their homes -- and has also accounted for multiple deaths.

Buffalo hosted San Jose on Tuesday night, one day after the first storm. An estimated crowd of just 6,200 was able to attend the 4-1 victory.

Raiders Notch Year's First Win, Upset Chiefs 24-20


Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Derek Carr threw only one touchdown pass Thursday night, but it was the most important one for the Oakland Raiders. With 1:42 remaining in regulation, Carr connected with James Jones on a 9-yard scoring play that put the Raiders ahead for good as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-20.

It was the first win of the year for Oakland (1-10) who snapped a 16-game losing streak that dated back to last season. Led by a dominant run game, the Raiders racked up 179 yards on the ground while the defense held the Chiefs to just one touchdown on three redzone trips. 

"That was really hard-fought, they are a great team obviously, they will probably go to the playoffs and do some great things," Carr said. "I can't wait to see my teammates' smiles."

The Raiders jumped out to a 14-0 lead on a pair of touchdown runs from Latavius Murray in the first half. Kansas City (7-4) eventually clawed back, tying the game at 17-17 in the four quarter when Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles connected for a 30-yard touchdown pass. The Chiefs then took the lead on a Cairo Santos field goal with nine minutes to play.

Over the next seven minutes, Carr orchestrated a 17-play, 80-yard drive that ended with the Raiders earning their first victory since Nov. 17, 2013, when they defeated Houston.

Meanwhile, Kansas City had their five-game win streak snapped and fell half a game behind Denver for first place in the AFC West.
