Redskins ask for bounty lawsuit to be thrown out

WASHINGTON — The Redskins asked a judge to dismiss a former NFL player's lawsuit that accuses the team and former assistant coach Gregg Williams of running a bounty program that encouraged players to intentionally injure opponents.

The former player, linebacker Barrett Green, says he was targeted during a game Dec. 5, 2004, resulting in a career-ending knee injury. Green was with the Giants when he was hit by Robert Royal. Green is suing the Redskins, Williams and Royal.

The team said Friday in federal court in Greenbelt, Md., that Green's claims are "utterly baseless." But, even if they were true, his lawsuit is pre-empted by an NFL collective bargaining agreement and was filed too late, lawyers for the team wrote.

Also, tight end Chris Cooley retired and will join the Redskins' radio broadcasting team.

Bengals: Defensive end and former Florida star Carlos Dunlap signed a five-year extension for $40 million. His contract now runs through 2018.

Jaguars: Receiver Laurent Robinson filed a grievance against the team, USA Today reported. He was released in March, before his $2.6 million salary for 2013 would have been guaranteed. He had four concussions in 2012.

Packers: Safety Morgan Burnett signed a four-year extension worth $24.75 million, reported.

Obituary: Jon Richardson, the oldest son of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson and the former president of Bank of America Stadium, died of cancer. He was 53.
