National briefs: Steelers, Titans to open season

Associated Press
DANA POINT, Calif. ó The Super Bowl champion Steelers will open the 2009 season in Pittsburgh on Sept. 10 against Tennessee.
The league also said Chicago will play at Green Bay in the first Sunday night game. The Monday night doubleheader on ESPN on Sept. 14 will feature Buffalo at New England. That game will be followed by San Diego at Oakland.
n PITTSBURGH ó Hall of Fame receiver John Stallworth is among three new partners added to Pittsburgh chairman Dan Rooney’s ownership group, one that may expand even further.
n DANA POINT, Calif. ó The Broncos may be listening to offers for disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler at the owners meetings. If coach Josh McDaniels has his way, though, they’ll try to work things out to keep Cutler in Denver.
“He’s our quarterback, we want him to be our quarterback, we made that very clear to him and we hope he feels the same way,” McDaniels told the NFL Network.
n ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. ó T.O. was a no-show for the start of the Bills voluntary offseason conditioning program. That didn’t stop new teammates from awaiting Terrell Owens’ arrival.
“I’m really excited about meeting the guy,” center Geoff Hangartner said. “I’ve heard he’s a great teammate.”
n MIAMI ó The Dolphins traded center Samson Satele to the Raiders for an undisclosed pick.
n CLEVELAND ó Receiver David Patten has rejoined the Browns, signing with his former team.
n GREEN BAY, Wis. ó The Packers have re-signed defensive end Michael Montgomery.
n DANA POINT, Calif. ó DirecTV has extended its deal for Sunday afternoon games through 2014, a move worth $4 billion.
HOCKEYSUNRISE, Fla. ó Ray Whitney scored 1:37 into overtime to lead the Carolina to a 3-2 win over Florida.
Tuomo Ruutu and Patrick Eaves also scored as Carolina improved to 8-1-2 in its last 11 games and moved past Pittsburgh into fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
n PHILADELPHIA ó Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne scored early in the third period to lift Philadelphia past New Jersey 4-2.
n ST. PAUL, Minn. ó Minnesota Wild center Mikko Koivu will miss at least a week with a knee injury and could miss the rest of the regular season.
GOLFJACKSONVILLE, Fla. ó John Daly claimed a Florida newspaper libeled him in a column suggesting he failed “the scoundrel sniff test,” but a judge disagreed.
Duval County Circuit Judge Hugh Carithers dismissed Daly’s libel lawsuit and granted the Florida Times-Union’s request for summary judgment.
He ruled that former columnist Mike Freeman’s statements were either true or constitutionally protected opinion.
