TODAY'S THOUGHT

At Calvary we see God's faithfulness and our unfaithfulness come to sharpest expression. The supremely faithful, ever-trusting Son of God crucified by rebels, for rebels. Friends, look at the cross.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Terence Newman wasn't ready to be done with the NFL, mentally or physically, but the desire to continue his career was only as good as a team's interest in him. The Minnesota Vikings were more than willing to re-sign the sage cornerback for a 15th season in the league. All this required, really, was an honest conversation between Newman and coach Mike Zimmer.

     EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants have signed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to a four-year pact that is theoretically worth about $68 million. Pierre-Paul had seven sacks last season with 53 tackles, eight passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery despite missing the final four games with a core muscle injury that required surgery. The signing comes less than two years after his right hand was severely damaged in a fireworks accident.
 
     Also, a person with knowledge of the agreement says quarterback Geno Smith has accepted a contract with the Giants. The 26-year-old Smith was a second-round draft choice by the Jets in 2013, but his stint with them was marred by injuries and inconsistency.
