Seahawks Sign Spencer Ware
The Seattle Seahawks have signed sixth-round draft choice fullback Spencer Ware to a multi-year contract, the team announced this afternoon.
Ware was the 194th overall selection in April's NFL Draft out of LSU and becomes the eighth Seahawks draft choice under contract.
Running back Christine Michael (second-round), cornerback Tharold Simon (fifth-round) and tackle Michael Bowie (seventh-round) remain unsigned.
Ibanez Hits Slam And 2-Run Homer In Mariners' Rout
Raul Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and two-run homer Wednesday night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York 12-2.
Ibanez's slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.
Every Seattle starter had at least one of its season-high 16 hits and Jesus Montero was the only starter who failed to score a run in the Mariners' best output this year.
The Mariners chased Phil Hughes after he got only two outs in the first.
Trying to preserve his bullpen, Yankees manager Joe Girardi had Brett Marshall throw 108 pitches in his big league debut, then brought in Gonzalez.
Kings-Sonics: Hansen, Mcginn Down But Not Out After Vote
The man behind the bid to return professional basketball to the Puget Sound region is sounding down, but not out, following the vote by the NBA Board of Governors against his proposal to relocate the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.
A few hours after Wednesday's announcement in Dallas, investor Chris Hansen posted a statement to his SonicsArena.com website thanking fans for their support and saying, "Our day will come...and when it does it will just be that much sweeter for the struggle."
He also thanked the league and its owners for their time and consideration, and said he looked forward to hearing back on an agreement to join the Kings' owners as limited partners in the franchise.
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn says the city's memorandum of understanding with Hansen is for five years, and officials will continue working to bring the NBA back to Seattle.
He says, "I share the disappointment of Sonics fans about today's vote. But we are in this for the long haul."
