ALAMEDA, Calif. ó The Oakland Raiders signed running back Darren McFadden to a $60 million, six-year contract, making sure their first-round draft pick will be in training camp after JaMarcus Russell’s protracted holdout last year.
McFadden ran for 4,590 yards and 41 touchdowns in three seasons with the Razorbacks.
OBITPITTSBURGH ó Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Dwight White, part of the Steel Curtain defense that led the team to four Super Bowl championships in the 1970s, has died following surgery at a Pittsburgh hospital. He was 58.
White, a two-time Pro Bowl player, was chosen as one of the 33 members of the Steelers’ 75th anniversary all-time team last season. White was best known for climbing out of a hospital bed to play in the Steelers’ first Super Bowl victory, 16-6 over the Minnesota Vikings in 1975.
White lost 18 pounds after being diagnosed with pneumonia and a lung infection, yet played nearly the entire game.SUICIDEDALLAS ó Authorities said Friday that a convicted steroids dealer who claimed to have sold drugs to pro football players killed himself, and the mother of a woman found dead in his home said she believes he killed her, too.
It was ruled 35-year-old David Jacobs’ shooting death a suicide, but police in the Dallas suburb of Plano aren’t saying whether he shot his on-again, off-again girlfriend.
JAGUARSJACKSONVILLE, Fla. ó Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh apologized Friday for his second arrest in 14 months and contradicted a police report that said he was “doing wheelies” on a motorcycle.
