Oak­land work­ing to keep Raiders

Baltimore Sun - - VARSITY -

Oak­land, Calif., Mayor Libby Schaaf an­nounced that the city has reached a frame­work agree­ment with the Ron­nie Lott in­vest­ment group for a new sta­dium, with the hopes of keep­ing the Raiders.

The agree­ment does not in­clude the Raiders, nor has Raiders owner Mark Davis agreed to stay in Oak­land.

The agree­ment would need to be ap­proved by the Board of Su­per­vi­sors and Oak­land City Coun­cil be­fore the groups could move for­ward.

Davis reaf­firmed to ESPN in Oc­to­ber that he plans to play the next two sea­sons at the Oak­land Coli­seum even if the team gets the green light from the NFL to move to Las Ve­gas. Rams waive Hill: The Rams waived cor­ner­back Troy Hill in the wake of his ar­rest last week­end af­ter a free­way crash.

Hill, who is fourth on the team in tack­les with 38, was ar­rested Satur­day morn­ing on sus­pi­cion of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol af­ter he rear-ended a truck in his Mercedes. His next court date is Dec. 14.

The Rams de­ac­ti­vated Hill for Sun­day’s 14-10 loss to the Dol­phins. Luck cau­tioned: Steel­ers quar­ter­back Ben Roeth­lis­berger “ab­so­lutely” ex­pects An­drew Luck to take the field for the Colts on Thurs­day night, but he cau­tions the star quar­ter­back to be smart while in con­cus­sion pro­to­col.

“The brain is noth­ing to mess with,” Roeth­lis­berger told In­di­anapo­lis re­porters on a con­fer­ence call. “He is young and has a long ca­reer ahead.”

The Ti­tans sacked Luck twice and hit him eight times in the Colts’ win Sun­day, with de­fen­sive tackle Austin John­son’s fourth-quar­ter hit likely forc­ing Luck into the con­cus­sion pro­to­col. Ad­jei-Barimah banned: Buc­ca­neers cor­ner­back Jude Ad­jei-Barimah has been sus­pended four games with­out pay for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL pol­icy on per­form­ing- en­hanc­ing drugs.

The sec­ond-year pro, who has pri­mar­ily served as the Buc­ca­neers’ nickel back this sea­son, will be el­i­gi­ble to re­turn to the ac­tive ros­ter on Dec. 19, the day af­ter the team vis­its the Cow­boys. Ex­tra points: Team doc­tors told Steel­ers DE Cam Hey­ward he’ll need six months of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion be­fore he can re­turn to foot­ball ac­tiv­i­ties. Hey­ward tore his pec­toral mus­cle Nov. 13 against the Cow­boys and was placed on in­jured re­serve Satur­day. ... The Sea­hawks re­leased G J’Mar­cus Webb af­ter he was by­passed in fa­vor of younger play­ers along Seattle’s of­fen­sive line. Webb, who signed a two-year deal worth up to $5.75 mil­lion in the off­sea­son, started the first three games but has played spar­ingly since then. ... The Lions waived WR Corey Fuller (Wood­lawn) af­ter prac­tice. He had been ac­ti­vated ear­lier this month from the phys­i­cally-un­able-to-per­form list, where he had been deal­ing with a foot in­jury. He didn’t play in a game this sea­son af­ter play­ing in 16 as with Detroit two years ago and 10 last year. Fuller had 14 re­cep­tions for 212 yards and a touch­down two years ago in his first NFL sea­son. He had just four catches for 76 yards last year.
