BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is expected to undergo surgery following the return of oral cancer. His wife, Jill, says the cancer is aggressive and starting to spread.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — As further proof the NFL never is far from the headlines, owners could make plenty of news this week at their spring meetings.
They will consider 13 playing rules proposals and seven bylaws. They will discuss expanding the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams, although a vote on such a move is uncertain.
The New York Jets have signed quarterback Michael Vick and released Mark Sanchez.
The Sanchez move comes as no surprise. He competed for the starting quarterback job with rookie Geno Smith last season in training camp, but the competition was cut short when Sanchez injured his right shoulder in a preseason game.
HOUSTON (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Houston Texans are nearing a deal to trade quarterback Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was not yet complete.
