Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, wife Ciara welcome baby girl

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 05:22:13 UT

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his popstar wife Ciara are now parents to a baby girl, Sienna Princess Wilson. The couple announced the birth of their daughter on Friday night while the NFL draft was taking place. Ciara posted to her Instagram account details of the birth. Sienna weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces, according to the post. The couple married last summer in England and announced they were expecting their first child together during the fall. This is the 28-year-old Wilson's first child. Ciara has a young son from a previous relationship with rapper Future.



Seahawks focus on line of scrimmage with first 2 draft picks

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 05:16:34 UT

(AP) — The fact that the Seattle Seahawks are getting older at certain spots on defense was in clear focus when they finally decided to join the NFL draft. Seattle used four of its six picks on Friday on defensive players, focusing specifically on the secondary and defensive line in an attempt to address specific needs and get a little younger. Seattle initially focused on the line of scrimmage in selecting defensive lineman Malik McDowell and offensive lineman Ethan Pocic with a pair of second-round picks. Seattle again focused on needs with its four third-round picks, drafting Central Florida cornerback Shaquill Griffin, Michigan safety Delano Hill, North Carolina defensive tackle Nazair Jones and Michigan wide receiver Amara Darboh. Schneider was nervous about McDowell being available at No. 35 overall, but was really worried if Pocic would still be there later in the second round when the Seahawks grabbed the versatile lineman from LSU. Griffin could fill an obvious hole with starter DeShawn Shead not expected to be ready for the start of the season after suffering a major knee injury during last season's playoffs, while Hill could be used at both safety spots in the secondary and possibly as a slot cornerback.



Cardinals move up 9 spots to draft DB Budda Baker

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 04:28:01 UT

(AP) — The Arizona Cardinals kept their attention on the defense on Friday, trading up nine spots in the second round to select safety Budda Baker of Washington. A tremendous football player, has everything we want in terms of passion, football character and like we've talked about over and over a hybrid player who has the ability to play multiple positions. The Cardinals' first-round pick, Haason Reddick, picked at No. 13, can play inside or outside. The Cardinals weren't driven away by an off-the-field problem that Williams had that led to his suspension for the opener last season after his arrest on marijuana and firearms possession. Williams said he just told the truth when he was asked by NFL teams about the incident To do that, they gave the Bears their second-round pick (No. 45), fourth-round pick (No. 119) and sixth-round pick (No. 197). Baker, in his call to reporters, talked about his mother, Michelle, whom he described as a cancer survivor who is fighting Crohn's disease and diabetes.



Packers focus on defense, take CB, safety and DL on Day 2

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 04:20:32 UT

First he became a father after his girlfriend gave birth to their first child, son Montravius Adams, Jr., at about 2:30 p.m. Friday. About eight hours later, life changed again for the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Adams as the Auburn defensive lineman was drafted in the third round by the Green Bay Packers. The Packers had made shoring up the secondary their first priority in the draft and they took Washington cornerback Kevin King with the first selection of the second round to fill a big need. Green Bay also took Josh Jones, a 6-foot-2 safety out of North Carolina State before beefing things up with Adams three months after getting blown out by the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC title game. General manager Ted Thompson had said that he was fielding calls about his first pick Friday, but defensive coordinator Dom Capers was spotted in the Packers draft room at Lambeau Field speaking with Thompson and the pick was announced shortly after. Green Bay also brought back veteran cornerback Davon House in the offseason as a free agent after he spent the last two years in Jacksonville.

Mariners' Miranda tops Indians; Cano, Gamel homer in 3-1 win

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 03:07:17 UT

CLEVELAND (AP) — The defending American League champions ran into an overpowering pitching performance Friday night. Ariel Miranda and two relievers combined to strike out 14 while allowing only four hits and the Seattle Mariners defeated the Cleveland Indians 3-1. Cano hit a two-run homer in the fourth. Miranda walked two in the first and pitched around a two-out fielding error by third baseman Kyle Seager in the second. Cleveland Browns first-round draft picks Myles Garrett, Jabril Peppers and David Njoku each threw out a ceremonial first pitch. Mariners: RHP Steve Chisek (left hip) is dealing with mechanical issues on his minor league rehab, but is having no physical problems coming off surgery for a torn labrum.

Changes come to 1 of world's largest indigenous gatherings

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 01:12:47 UT

The event in Albuquerque has grown over the years but will have a new, smaller space for dancers and other performers from across the U.S. Still, organizers say the new venue expands opportunities for the Indian Market and live entertainment outside the powwow. When it was held at the University of New Mexico's basketball arena, attendees often complained about parking and leaving their cars in unattended areas. Stage 49 will feature contemporary Native American music and entertainment, including the all-female melodic death thrash band, Suspended. In addition to Aztec dancers and traditional music, the stage will feature non-Native performers such as Bronx-born DJ Logic and guitarist Vernon Reid of the band Living Colour. The powwow comes as Native Americans keep discussing protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, said Tara Gatewood, host and producer of syndicated public radio show Native America Calling. The Standing Rock Sioux and other tribes said the pipeline threatens their sovereignty, religious rights and water supply.



West Coast dockworkers to vote on deal seeking labor peace

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 00:39:01 UT

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dockworkers were given the chance Friday to vote on a new contract extension that could provide long-term labor peace at West Coast seaports, where in recent years work slowdowns and strikes have affected billions of dollars in cargo. "Extending our contract would maintain stability on the waterfront for the next five years - a crucial time as the West Coast waterfront faces increased competition from other North American ports, and as the maritime industry continues to battle global economic challenges," spokesman Wade Gates said. The contract extension is aimed at ensuring West Coast ports remain a reliable gateway for international commerce.

Review: Coal terminal would boost global climate-warming gas

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 00:22:02 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — A coal-export terminal proposed in Washington state would increase cancer risks for some residents, make rail accidents more likely and add millions of metric tons of climate-changing greenhouse gas globally every year, according to an environmental study released Friday. The yearslong fight over the deep-water port comes as President Donald Trump has vowed to revive the struggling coal industry and lifted restrictions on mining coal and drilling for oil and natural gas. Environmentalists, tribes and others have fiercely opposed the project, which could increase U.S. exports of coal by 40 percent, because of concerns about global warming, coal dust pollution and potential damage to fisheries on the river. The environmental review by the state Department of Ecology and Cowlitz County analyzed potential harm to fish habitat, wetlands, water quality, local communities and more. In a statement, Millennium CEO Bill Chapman said, "We have carefully designed the project to protect air and water quality, fish and wildlife, groundwater and people in accordance with regulatory requirements."

Mariners minor leaguer Gamboa suspended for drug test

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 21:56:33 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Seattle infielder Miguel Gamboa has been suspended for 56 games under baseball's minor league drug program following a positive test for a metabolite of Nandrolone. Gamboa, a 19-year-old from Mexico, is on the roster of the rookie-level Arizona League Mariners. He hit .261 with 18 RBIs in 40 games last season with the Dominican Summer League Mariners. The suspension, announced Friday, was the 29th this year under the minor league drug program. There have been two under the big league program: Pittsburgh All-Star outfielder Starling Marte and Philadelphia pitcher Elniery Garcia.
