PITTSBURGH -- New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has a court date next week on criminal charges stemming from a fight after he turned himself in to police and was later released on a non-monetary bond.
Revis faces aggravated assault and other charges alleging he was in a fight with two men last weekend in Pittsburgh. He answered no questions from the media as he turned himself in Friday. He later made an initial court appearance, and his next court date was scheduled for Thursday.
Revis' attorney has said Revis was physically assaulted by a group of at least five people. He said Revis "feared for his safety" and sought medical attention, but he didn't offer details about the severity of Revis' injuries (see story).
Dolphins sign Cameron Wake to 2-year contract extension
DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins have signed defensive end Cameron Wake to a two-year contract extension.
The 35-year-old Wake is coming off a Pro Bowl season, one year removed from an Achilles injury. He had 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and one interception this past season, helping the Dolphins reach the playoffs.
The Dolphins were 9-2 after Wake was added to the starting lineup, and he became just the third player to register 10 or more sacks at the age of 34 or older.
Wake has 81.5 sacks in eight seasons, the second most in Dolphins history behind Hall of Famer Jason Taylor's 131.
Under the extension announced Saturday, Wake is now under contract through the 2018 season.
Uncertain future for Vikings stadium after suite dustup
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- An uncertain future awaits the Minnesota Vikings' new stadium after a dustup over the oversight authority's use of luxury suites culminated in the exit of two top officials.
Michele Kelm-Helgen and Ted Mondale resigned from the Minnesota Sports Facilitates Authority on Thursday, months after the use of suites was first revealed in November. The resignations leave the stadium leaderless while the state gears up to host the 2018 Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, Republican lawmakers in Minnesota are still pushing to drastically reshape the authority, giving themselves power to appoint many members.
A recent report from the Office of the Legislative Auditor shows nearly half the guests inside the two authority suites were friends or family of commissioners. That prompted complaints that public officials were abusing their positions for personal gain.
