Marshall's hips now center of mystery

DAVIE — The first on-field reps for new Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall are on hold for a while.

Marshall, who rode an exercise bike at Wednesday's organized team activity, won't practice until training camp after it was revealed he had hip surgery less than three weeks ago.

But even the circumstances surrounding the surgery, the details of which neither Marshall nor coach Tony Sparano would disclose, are unclear.

According to the Denver Post, the former Broncos receiver had a "cleanup procedure" on his previously injured left hip.

"It was something that came up, we needed to get it cleaned up, and we did," Sparano said.

But the Miami Herald reported the recent surgery was for an injury to the right hip.

Marshall, who also had hip surgery before the 2009 season and said he played in 2008 with a hip tear, shook off questions.

"I'm just going to do the best I can with the mental reps and prepare myself that way," the former UCF standout said.

Sapp after money: Retired Bucs defensive lineman Warren Sapp has jumped into the legal fray over money left by Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein's bankrupt law firm, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. Sapp had nearly $103,000 in a trust account with the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler firm when it collapsed in November after Rothstein's massive financial fraud came to light, according to a federal court filing. Attorneys for Sapp filed a petition in Rothstein's criminal case, alerting U.S. District Judge James Cohn that Sapp has an interest in money the federal government is seeking in a forfeiture action. It appears Sapp, 37, got $20,000 shortly before Rothstein's law firm fell apart.

Union pitch: Heading into negotiations with owners for a new labor deal, union chief DeMaurice Smith is looking for support from retired players. Smith spent much of his speech at the Charlotte (N.C.) Touchdown Club luncheon promising the handful of former players, who are now business executives, that past troubles are over, and he vowed to work for increased retiree benefits in the next collective bargaining agreement. Smith floated the idea that each team should put $1 million aside every year to boost pensions.

Bengals: Adam "Pacman" Jones, the troubled cornerback who signed a two-year deal, said he has changed his lifestyle and reordered his priorities during the time he was out of the league. Jones, 26, said he no longer hangs around with those who helped him get into trouble: "…I know what I've got to do to keep playing football, and that's what I'm working on doing."

Chargers: A report by a county grand jury says the city of San Diego loses about $17 million per year renting the city-owned Qualcomm Stadium to the team. The city collects $2.5 million per season in rent from the team, plus 10 percent of postseason ticket sales. The team keeps revenue from sky boxes, advertising and parking. The grand jury recommended that the city negotiate better terms for the new public-financed stadium that the team wants to build.

Seahawks: Quarterback J.P. Losman, 29, signed a one-year deal.
