Caz Piurowski signs deal with Seattle Seahawks

Former Florida State tight end Caz Piurowski has signed a three-year contract with the Seahawks, his agent Derrick Fox said Wednesday.

Piurowski, a former Land O'Lakes standout, missed all of last season with a torn ACL sustained in October 2009. He had 13 receptions for 182 yards and two touchdowns in his senior year at FSU before the injury.

"Finally, it's been a long road back from a lot of frustration," Fox said. "It's been a year of recovery, and a matter of time for him to get ready so he can play. He's 100 percent healthy now. He's just thrilled."

Fox said Piurowski, 23, will report to Seattle for organized team activities "once the collective bargaining agreement is agreed upon."

body of REED'S BROTHER FOUND: A body pulled from the Mississippi River near Luling, La., has been tentatively identified as the brother of Ravens safety Ed Reed, authorities said at a news conference attended by the NFL star.

St. Charles Parish Sheriff Greg Champagne said tattoos on the body recovered late Tuesday appear to match those belonging to Brian Reed, 28, who jumped into the river after an encounter with a sheriff's deputy. An autopsy is planned for today.

Ed Reed said his brother was driving another brother's car on Jan. 7 and was suffering "mental issues" that day. The family reported the car as being driven without authorization to "basically slow my brother down and just bring him in, bring him home," Reed added.

"Unfortunately, he thought otherwise," he said of his brother. "There was nothing illegal going on or anything like that."

AIKMAN, wife SEPARATe: Former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman and his wife have separated after more than a decade of marriage. Aikman, in a statement published by the Dallas Morning News, confirmed the separation from his wife, Rhonda, in what he calls "a difficult decision" for both.

DOLPHINS: With former Bucs and Florida Gators receiver Ike Hilliard joining as assistant wide receivers coach, Karl Dorrell will move from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach and former offensive quality control coach Steve Bush will become receivers coach. Coach Tony Sparano also hired his son, Tony Jr., as offensive quality control coach.

Information from Times wires was used in this report.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31

    Blogs

    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win

    Blogs

    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State

    College

    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
