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 - The Minnesota Vikings and veteran cornerback Terence Newman have agreed to terms on a new contract, bringing him back for a 15th season in the NFL. Newman has been a starter for the team the last two years. He missed only one game in that span, because of a neck injury, and had four interceptions and 21 pass breakups. Newman, who will turn 39 on Sept. 4, has 41 career interceptions,  second among active players in the league behind DeAngelo Hall (43).

     DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - There are two more First Four games this evening in Dayton, Ohio. First up, N.C. Central plays UC Davis for the right to compete in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. That's followed by Providence vs. Southern Cal. In the first two play-in games yesterday, Kansas State beat Wake Forest 95-88 and Mount St. Mary's eked out a 67-66 win over New Orleans. Mount St. Mary's goes up against defending national champion and top overall seed Villanova tomorrow. Eleventh-seeded K-State will play No. 6 Cincinnati on Friday.

     BOSTON (AP) - The Patriots have re-signed Pro Bowl linebacker Dont'a Hightower. Hightower's agency, SportsTrust Advisors, tweeted the agreement today and his agent Pat Dye Jr. confirmed it. The new pact is for four years and $43.5 million.
 
     It brings back one of the Patriots' biggest free agents, who has helped New England win two Super Bowls in his five NFL seasons. He has 372 tackles and 17 sacks since being a first-round pick out of Alabama in 2012.
 
     He also had one of the biggest plays in last month's Super Bowl. He forced a fumble on a sack on Atlanta's Matt Ryan in the fourth quarter, helping swing the momentum New England's way in its comeback 34-28 overtime victory.
 
     The 27-year-old Hightower had free agent visits with both the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, but will return to captain a defense that allowed a league-low 15.6 points per game during the regular-season in 2016.
 
     In other NFL moves:
 
     - The Pittsburgh Steelers have added depth at wide receiver, signing free agent Justin Hunter today to a one-year deal. Financial details were not disclosed. The 25-year-old Hunter split time between Buffalo and Miami in 2016, catching 10 passes for 189 yards and four touchdowns. Hunter has 78 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns while playing for the Titans, the Bills and the Dolphins.
 
     - Free agent linebacker Zach Brown is visiting the Oakland Raiders as the team looks for an upgrade at the position, according to a person familiar with the visit who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity. Brown spent last season with Buffalo.
 
     - The Washington Redskins have hired Chris O'Hara as offensive quality control coach and given new titles to assistant head coach and offensive line coach Bill Callahan, outside linebackers coach Chad Grimm and assistant special teams coach Bret Munsey. The Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughan last week, two years into a four-year contract.

     SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - All-Star catcher Salvador Perez should be ready for Kansas City's season opener after tests showed there was no structural damage to his injured left knee. The Royals, though, are still concerned about his hyperextended left elbow. Royals manager Ned Yost said Perez would probably be ready to play in a week.
 
     Perez returned to the Royals camp Wednesday after playing for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. He was injured Saturday in a collision at the plate with his Royals backup, Drew Butera, who was playing for Italy.
 
     Initially, the knee was Perez's main concern, and he had a second MRI on Tuesday. But the test only showed inflammation, not serious damage.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - The Nationals have unconditionally released catcher Derek Norris, who at one point appeared to be penciled in as Washington's starting catcher but became expendable after the club signed free agent Matt Wieters. The Nationals announced the move today via Twitter.
 
     Norris, originally a first-round draft pick by Washington in 2007, was reacquired by the team in December via a trade with the San Diego Padres for minor league right-hander Pedro Avila.
 
     Norris batted .186 with 14 homers and 42 RBIs with San Diego last season. With Washington's starting catcher in 2016, Wilson Ramos, gone after signing as a free agent with Tampa Bay, Norris was in line for the job. Until, that is, four-time All-Star Wieters joined the Nationals last month.
