Saints' Graham Fined $30K for Dunks


Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was fined $30,000 on Friday by the NFL for dunking on the goalpost twice during a preseason game against Tennessee last week. 

The new rule, instituted this season, re-defines unsportsmanlike conduct to include any act using the ball as a prop. Many have referred to the new interpretation as the "Jimmy Graham rule" directed at the veteran tight end's signature touchdown celebration.

Graham twice dunked the football after scoring touchdowns against the Titans, resulting in a pair of 15-yard penalties. The acts also drew some frustration from head coach Sean Payton as the Saints committed a total of 28 called penalties. 

League rules state that players can be fined at least $11,025 for a their first unsportsmanlike penalty, and $22,050 for a second offense if the league deems necessary. Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for making an obscene gesture towards the Washington Redskins bench on Monday night.

Red Sox Land Cuban OF Castillo


Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The Boston Red Sox have reportedly agreed to terms with Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo on a seven-year deal worth approximately $72 million. 

The heavily back loaded deal, as confirmed by a team source on Friday, is a record dollar amount for a free-agent amateur. Castillo is en route to Boston and has a physical scheduled for Saturday, according to ESPN's Pedro Gomez.

An impressive defensive player with good speed, Castillo has spent the last five years playing in Serie Nacional, Cuba's top league. The 27-year old is highly regarded as a base stealer and boasts an above-average bat. Even with all of the hype, Red Sox manager John Farrell knows how scouting reports can be.

"Above-average speed. Can play center field or right field. What kind of power? What kind of average?," pondered Farrell. "Obviously our scouts liked him enough, if the reports are true, that's a significant investment. It's an exciting, athletic player by all accounts."

Once officially with the club, Castillo is expected to play centerfield for Boston, next to countrymen Yoenis Cespedes.

ESPN: Timberwolves Set to Acquire Thaddeus Young from the 76ers


NBA Logo(NEW YORK) -- Even though the Minnesota Timberwolves are set to lose one of the game's best players in Kevin Love, they will be getting in return plenty of talent to replace him.

In addition to landing Andrew Wiggins and others from the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN reports the team will also acquire Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young.

It is unknown if this will be part of a three-team deal between the teams, or a separate trade at this time. ESPN also reports that the Timberwolves would send over the expiring contracts of Luc Richard Mbah A Moute and Alexey Shved along with a 2015 first-round pick that previously belonged to the Miami Heat.

Even though he's played seven NBA seasons, all with the 76ers, Young is still just 26 years old. He's flown under the radar in recent years due to Philadelphia's rebuilding efforts, but he should prove to be a highly productive player for Minnesota. Young can provide energy, defense, and scoring either in a starting role or off the bench. This past season, he averaged a career-high 17.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.

Angels Acquire Second Baseman Gordon Beckham from the White Sox


Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Gordon Beckham-era is over in Chicago as the White Sox have traded the second baseman to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later.

"This trade, quite frankly, was more about creating an opportunity for some of our young players to come up here, get some playing time and become part of this next core of White Sox players that we have put together over the last several months and are going to continue to work on over the next several months," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said.

Beckham was the eighth overall pick by the White Sox back in 2008 and much was expected of him once he made his MLB debut back in 2009. Even though he'd been the team's primary second baseman since being called up, he never quite lived up the lofty expectations placed on him.

In 739 games with the White Sox, Beckham hit just .244 with 61 home runs and a .306 on base percentage.

Cowboys Linebacker DeVonte Holloman Advised to Retire


Darrin Kilmek/Thinkstock(IRVING, Texas) -- Due to neck injuries, doctors have advised Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeVonte Holloman to retire from football.

Holloman missed seven games last season with a bruised spinal cord.

Just 23 years old, Holloman received a second opinion from a doctor who recommended he immediately retire. He will reportedly seek out a third opinion.

"I don't want to get into anything medical about it," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. "I don't know that much about it, and there's a lot of very specific things regarding that. But it has to do with his neck and he had that injury last year and he dealt with it again this year."

It's a very challenging, difficult thing for a young man who has dreams of being an NFL football player, achieves those dreams," he added.

In what could be his final NFL game, Holloman recorded 11 tackles and two sacks in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Holloman was selected in the sixth-round of the 2013 Draft. He made 26 tackles in nine games during his potentially lone season in the NFL.

Tim Howard Taking 1-Year Break from US National Team


iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Goalie Tim Howard announced Thursday he will take a one-year off from the United States men's national soccer team.

The 35-year-old will still play for Everton in England's Premier League and won't have a chance to return to the national team until September 2015.

"Having played overseas for the last 12 years and missing out on spending time with my family, making this commitment to my family is very important at this time," Howard said in a statement. "I am grateful for the willingness of both Jurgen Klinsmann and Everton manager Roberto Martinez to afford me the opportunity to spend time with my kids. It's the right decision at the right time. Jurgen has always been up front with all the players in saying you have to earn your place, which is something I agree with, so I look forward to coming back next fall and competing for a spot."

On his Facebook page, Howard also expressed interest in playing for the U.S. in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. 

"Physically I feel as strong as ever, and right now my heart, mind, and body all feel good about continuing on with the national team for the next World Cup," Howard wrote. "It is difficult to predict the situation in four years but I know this decision is right for me today."

Howard has played every minute of every match for the Americans at the last two World Cups.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere Calls It a Career


Christian Petersen/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere announced his retirement Thursday.

"He was also a very important part of our team during the past three seasons, providing veteran leadership and stability in net. We wish him and his family the best of luck."

Derrick Rose Will Play Friday


Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After not playing in Wednesday night's exhibition game versus the Dominican Republic, Team USA point guard Derrick Rose practiced Thursday and says he will play in the team's exhibition game Friday versus Puerto Rico.

"I'm feeling good," Rose said. "I'm gonna give it a go tomorrow (Friday) and see how it goes, and I'm just trying to stay positive until then."

The former NBA MVP is coming back from surgeries on both knees. He played in Team USA's victory over Brazil Saturday and practiced on Monday and Tuesday before complaining of soreness in his knees and becoming a late scratch for Wednesday's game. But Rose downplayed the idea that there is anything wrong with his health.

"I could've played, but there's no point when you can get a little bit more rest," Rose said. "So that's all I'm trying to do."

Nationals Walk-Off Again, Earn 10th-Straight Win


Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) --The Washington Nationals won for the fifth time in six games on a walk-off, this time on a throwing error, as they beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 Thursday.

The Nationals have now won 10 straight.

Denard Span scored the winning run when Anthony Rendon hit a ground ball to third baseman Jordan Pacheco. Pacheco proceeded to throw the ball past the first baseman and into the camera well. That allowed Span, who started the play on second base, to be rewarded home.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez pitched seven innings of scoreless ball allowing four hits and three walks while striking out six, and Rafael Soriano (4-1) pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
 

Washington (73-53) become the first team since the 1986 Astros to win five games via the walk-off in a six-game span.
