T.O. coming back with Seahawks

 

Football: Terrell Owens is coming back to the NFL after one year on the sidelines.

Owens had a tryout with the Seahawks on Monday, and hours later the team announced it had agreed to terms with the 38-year-old receiver. He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns with Cincinnati.

Owens then had surgery on his left knee and didn’t receive any offers to play last season.

He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. Owens was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.

Owens has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns – the second most in NFL history.

UW starts camp set with Price

Football: Steve Sarkisian’s fourth year is beginning at Washington after an offseason where the Huskies underwent a complete makeover of the defensive coaching staff.

The Huskies started fall camp on Monday and while there are plenty of questions about what Washington will look like on defense, they are settled at the most important offensive position with the return of quarterback Keith Price.

Coming off one of the finest seasons in Washington history, Price returns for his junior campaign. Price threw for 3,063 yards and a school record 33 touchdowns last season.

‘Apparent natural death’ for Urso

Soccer: A coroner said signs pointed to “an apparent natural death” pending results from toxicology tests and on other tissue after an autopsy performed on Columbus Crew midfielder Kirk Urso on Monday.

Urso, 22, was pronounced dead at 1:50 a.m. Sunday at Grant Medical Center after collapsing at a downtown Columbus, Ohio, bar and restaurant.

Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak said toxicology tests will not be finalized for four to six weeks.

“It’s leaning toward an apparent natural death, but we don’t know why,” Gorniak said.

She said the autopsy revealed no trauma to Urso’s body, along with no blood clots. In addition to toxicology tests, the coroner’s office will also take a closer look at what Gorniak referred to as “heart changes.”
