Chiefs sign draft pick Thomas to contract

Sports

May 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have signed fourth-round pick De’Anthony Thomas, leaving only first-round pick Dee Ford and fifth-round pick Aaron Murray as their unsigned draft picks. Thomas is a wide receiver and running back whom the Chiefs are counting on to replace Dexter McCluster, who signed with Tennessee in free agency. The true value in Thomas is that in addition to playing multiple positions on offense, he can also return punts and kicks.

His stock dropped after running a 4.5 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, but his speed and elusiveness made him one of the nation’s most dynamic playmakers during his career at Oregon. The Chiefs announced the move Friday. The team had previously signed third-round pick Phillip Gaines and sixth-round choices Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Zach Fulton.

IA Safety Miller signs with the Pack

Sports

May 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers have signed fourth-round draft pick Carl Bradford, finalizing the agreement with the linebacker on the day the team opened its rookie minicamp. Coach Mike McCarthy has said the 6-foot-1 rookie from Arizona State will begin camp at outside linebacker. General manager Ted Thompson on Friday also signed undrafted free agent Tanner Miller, a 6-foot-1 safety from Iowa.

Fifth-round pick Corey Linsley signed his rookie deal on Thursday. The center from Ohio State could be in the mix for the starting job in Green Bay after veteran Evan Dietrich-Smith left as a free agent for Tampa Bay. The Packers this week also formally announced the signing of receiver Jared Abbrederis, a Wisconsin native who played college ball with the Badgers.

Fight against Alzheimers is personal for ISU’s Rhoads

Sports

May 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Iowa State football coach Paul Rhoads is known for his emotional speeches and he had to prepare another one, on Thursday. Rhoads addressed a luncheon in West Des Moines to promote next month’s “A Ride to Remember” motorcycle event which raises money for the Alzheimer’s Association. It is a cause that is personal to the coach. Rhoads says being involved with the Alzheimer’s Association and meeting people affected by the disease is part of the healing process for him. His mother had the disease and passed away in 2011.

The ride begins at Jack Trice Stadium on June 22nd. It will be the fifth year Rhoads has hosted the event which began with 50 bikes. Rhoads says he is pleased with how quickly the event has grown and remembers being shock whe he saw the number of motorcycles in the parking lot a couple of years ago.

It costs 35 dollars per person to take part in the ride.

Chiefs sign draft pick Gaines to contract

Sports

May 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have signed third-round draft pick Phillip Gaines. The cornerback out of Rice became the third of the Chiefs’ six draft picks to sign their contracts when he agreed to a deal Thursday. Sixth-round picks Zach Fulton and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, both offensive lineman, had already signed their contracts. Terms of the contracts have not been disclosed.

That leaves only defensive end Dee Ford, the No. 23 overall pick, fourth-rounder De’Anthony Thomas and fifth-round pick Aaron Murray to sign their contracts. Gaines played in 52 games for Rice, intercepting four passes and piling up a school-record 38 passes defensed. He served as a captain for the Owls his final two seasons.

Wacha sparks Cardinals in win over Cubs

Sports

May 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Wacha pitched seven innings and drove in two runs, helping the Cardinals to a 5-3 victory Thursday afternoon over the Chicago Cubs. The 6-foot-6 Wacha (3-3) had lost his last three decisions since an April 13 win over the Cubs. The 22-year-old right-hander allowed seven hits, including a homer, but did not walk a batter. He struck out five.

Trevor Rosenthal pitched 1 2-3 innings for his 11th save. Rosenthal, who blew a save Tuesday, inherited a one-out, bases-loaded situation and gave up a sacrifice fly, but closed out the inning and retired the side in the ninth.

The Cubs have lost nine of their last 11 and are off to the worst start in 39 games (13-26) since 2002.
