    NEW YORK -- The federal judge handling Tom Brady's attempt to overturn his four-game suspension ordered the New England Patriots quarterback and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to appear in court twice in mid-August. U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman told the sides Friday he had scheduled conferences Aug. 12 and 19 "with your principles (including, without limitation, Mr. Goodell and Mr. Brady)." He also requested the parties "engage in comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions prior to the conference on August 12."

    Wrestling legend "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the kilt-wearing trash-talker who headlined the first WrestleMania and later found movie stardom, has died at the age of 61, WWE announced Friday. Piper suffered a heart attack at his home in Hollywood, California, according to Variety. The WWE confirmed the death but provided no additional details.

  • Sheldon Richardson apologizes again; Jets express concern for DE
    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Embattled defensive end Sheldon Richardson apologized for the second time in a 24-hour span, this time for a July 14 arrest that left coach Todd Bowles and the New York Jets organization deeply concerned about Richardson's well-being. "He hasn't been smart, and he hasn't been clear in the head," Bowles said Friday after practice. "Clearly, he needs some help." Bowles declined to speculate on when -- or if -- Richardson will play again this season, saying the Jets will let the NFL handle potential discipline. He already is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The Jets were blindsided by the arrest, which didn't become public until late Thursday. Richardson confirmed that he didn't tell the team. He said "nobody knew," not even his parents. Richardson, a Pro Bowler last season, was driving his 2014 Bentley Silver Spur at speeds clocked as high as 143 mph with three...
