ICHIRO SUZUKI
Now that Ichiro Suzuki is back with the Seattle Mariners, he hopes to stick around a while. The 44-year-old outfielder rejoined his former team Wednesday with a $750,000, one-year contract. Suzuki was the AL MVP and Rookie of the Year with Seattle in 2001. He was traded to the New York Yankees during the 2012 season and spent three years in Miami. Suzuki has a .312 career average and 3,080 hits, not including the 1,278 hits he totaled in Japan. He played 136 games last year for the Marlins and hit .255 with a .318 on-base percentage. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said discussions about Suzuki's return intensified about a week ago, when the club's outfield injury situation became a greater concern.
NFL
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Eagles acquired three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle gets wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick, while Philadelphia also receives a seventh-round pick. Bennett had 8 + sacks last season and 54 in his nine-year career.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Rams agreed to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants for two draft picks. Los Angeles gets the Giants' fourth-round and sixth-round picks in the 2018 draft. The NFC West champion Rams also will send a seventh-round pick in 2019 to the Giants along with Ogletree, their defensive captain and last season's leading tackler.
NEW YORK (AP) - Jerry Jones agreed to pay the NFL more than $2 million in legal fees resulting from two disputes the Dallas Cowboys owner had with the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell held an appeal hearing with Jones on Monday. That came a few days after Goodell assessed the financial penalties for Jones' lawsuit to overturn the suspension of Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott, and for a lawsuit Jones threatened to stop Goodell's newly approved contract.
MANNING & PAPA JOHNS
DENVER -- Peyton Manning sold 31 Denver-area Papa John's stores last week, two days before the NFL dropped the chain as its official pizza sponsor. The Denver Post reported Wednesday that Papa John's spokesman Peter Collins confirmed the former NFL quarterback sold his stake to an existing Papa John's franchisee. Manning will remain Papa John's celebrity spokesman and brand ambassador. He wasn't immediately available for comment. The NFL and Papa John's ended their deal Feb. 27, and the league announced a multiyear marketing deal with Pizza Hut the following day. The NFL's relationship with Papa John's was strained last year when company founder John Schnatter criticized the league's leadership about national anthem protests by players.
NASCAR
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick has been stripped of the playoff points he earned for winning at Las Vegas because of violations discovered on his Ford. NASCAR ruled Wednesday that Harvick's No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team violated the rule requiring rear window support braces holding the rear window glass rigid, as well as a rule requiring the right side rocker panel extension to be aluminum. The penalty is the loss of the seven playoff points Harvick earned for winning Sunday's race and both stages. It was Harvick's second consecutive win of the season. Harvick also was docked 20 points. Harvick now has six playoff points instead of the 13 he had earned through three races. Crew chief Rodney Childers was fined $50,000, and car chief Robert Smith was suspended two races. Images of Harvick's popped up on social media with fans wondering if the car was legal because the window appeared altered. Childers has maintained a brace failed.
IDITAROD
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The head of the Iditarod's drug testing program, who is challenging his termination from a university job over allegations of bullying and sexual harassment, has been accused of threatening a musher just before the start of this year's race - another black mark for the beleaguered, world-famous sled dog race. Iditarod officials said they are reviewing the allegations and will determine the future role of Dr. Morrie Craig within the next few days. Craig is a contractor for the Iditarod, who is paid an annual $2,500 stipend. The Iditarod's policy against sexual harassment also covers bullying.
