NFL NOTEBOOK: Sanchez lands with Eagles
UNDATED (AP) — Mark Sanchez and Michael Vick have traded places.
Bounced out of New York after the Jets signed Vick last Friday, Sanchez agreed to a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a person with knowledge of the agreement. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Eagles haven’t officially announced the move.
• ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was indicted Thursday on a charge he assaulted his fiancee in an elevator at a casino in Atlantic City, N.J.
Rice had been charged with simple assault after police said he knocked out Janay Palmer on Feb. 15 at the Revel Casino. But a grand jury indicted him on a more serious count of aggravated assault. It carries a three-to-five-year sentence.
• CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay had $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his vehicle when he was arrested on suspicion of intoxicated driving and other charges, according to the arrest report.
The cash was in Irsay’s wallet, metal briefcase and two laundry bags. The briefcase and bags, which were on the front passenger-side floor, also contained bottles of pills of various colors, including orange, green and white ones, the police report states.
• COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Johnny Manziel’s NFL pro day had a former president, lots of swag, a Drake soundtrack and even some football, too.
The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner threw for 75 officials from 30 teams on the Texas A&M campus Thursday afternoon.
He also had some special guests, as former President George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara — and their two dogs — rolled into the facility on golf carts about 10 minutes into the workout.
Manziel threw about 65 passes to six receivers, including A&M teammate Mike Evans, who like Manziel is expected to be a first-round pick in the May draft. Only two passes weren’t caught and Evans grabbed a third long pass out of bounds.
• MIAMI (AP) — Running back Knowshon Moreno agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, and they hope he’ll enliven a ground game that ranked 26th in the NFL last season.
Moreno, a five-year veteran, had his best season in 2013 when he rushed for 1,038 yards, caught 60 passes and scored 13 touchdowns playing with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. He ranked fifth in the NFL with 1,586 yards from scrimmage, and tied for fourth with 10 rushing touchdowns.
