Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on
a contract with linebacker Rey Maualuga, a second-round pick in the 2009 draft.
Aldon Smith Jersey . Terms of the deal were
not disclosed. Maualuga was selected by the Bengals 38th overall in the NFL
Draft, after he completed a standout four-year career with Southern California.
Maualuga led the Trojans defense in 2008 with 79 tackles, and won the Chuck
Bednarik Award, given to the nations top defensive player.   Chris Culliver Jersey . The 50-year-old
Clemens is scheduled to pitch Saturday for the Sugar Land Skeeters against the
Bridgeport Bluefish in the independent Atlantic League. Aldon Smith Super Bowl Jersey . In Tuesday
nights 7-2 loss, Travis Snider and J.P. Arencibia each hit solo homers for the
Blue Jays, who were coming off a three-game road sweep of Boston over the
weekend. Starting pitcher Brett Cecil was solid in a tough-luck defeat,
permitting just two runs and fanning eight batters over the first six innings.
. “Nick Diaz vs GSP is on!” Cesar Gracie, Diazs head coach, tweeted Friday. Kendall Hunter Jersey . The 40-year-old third
baseman is happy to have found his swing just in time to play a lead role in the
two weeks before the All-Star break. Frank Gore Limited Jersey .75 seconds at the
London 2012 Olympic Games. American Carmelita Jeter captured the silver medal,
finishing with a season-best time of 10. ORLANDO, Fla. —The Magic are making
some progress on solidifying their roster for next season, agreeing in principle
to a new deal with Jameer Nelson. Orlandos 30-year-old point guard announced the
news on his Twitter account Thursday. The deal comes just a week after Nelson
opted out of the final season and nearly $8 million of his contract to test free
agency. “Glad to say Ive reached an agreement with the Magic… Im blessed to
have the best fans and a great organization supporting me!” Nelson posted on his
Twitter feed. He did not disclose the length of the new pact. A message left for
Nelson seeking additional comment was not immediately returned. Free agents cant
officially sign new deals until July 11 when the NBAs moratorium ends. Teams
arent allowed to comment on new contracts until then, either, but Magic general
manager Rob Hennigan said earlier this week that there was a desire to see
Nelson return to the team. “My hope is that he remains in Orlando and in a Magic
uniform,” Hennigan said of Nelson. “But there needs to be a mutual desire for
that to happen.” The question for Nelson was whether he was better off playing
out next season under his expiring contract and risk becoming a trade asset, or
to seek a long-term deal elsewhere. The new deal indicates that he found comfort
in both the finances and length of the Magics new deal. Nelson has spent each of
his eight NBA seasons in Orlando, which drafteed him along with Dwight Howard in
2004. Alex Boone Jersey. Howard is signed through
next season, but recently told the Magic he wanted a trade to Brooklyn and
wouldnt sign long-term anywhere else. When Howard originally made his trade
demand to the Magic last season, he referenced a desire to play with other point
guards, including the Nets Deron Williams and Los Angeles Clippers Chris Paul.
Intentional or not, it seemed to be a direct comment by Howard on Nelsons
ability to lead the Magic to a championship. Though Nelson has dismissed the
notion that any of that affected his play, former general manager Otis Smith—
who had talked with Nelson about it—said last season that he thought it was
on Nelsons mind at times. Nelson shot a career-low 42 per cent from the field
this season and averaged 11.9 points and 5.7 assists per game this season. The
scoring and assists numbers were both down from the previous year. Along with
Howards unresolved status, the Magic also has lingering decisions to make on
forward Ryan Anderson, as well as guard J.J. Redick. Redick is due $6.1 million
next year in the final season of his deal, but the team can get out of that if
they waive him by July 7. Anderson is the reigning league most improved player
and a restricted free agent, though the Magic extended a qualifying offer to the
third-year forward. It allows the team to match any offer he receives on the
open market this summer. ’ ’ ’
