Steve Mason & Liz Habib: Jason Collins, Ray Rice & Buccaneers Helmet

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11 / AP) General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out center Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed.

King did not attend the workout that was reported by ESPN.com, but says Thursday he was told Collins is "in shape."

Collins revealed at the end of last season he is gay. The 35-year-old Collins played in 38 games for Boston and Washington and hasn't been particularly productive in recent years, but has a number of former teammates on the Nets, including coach Jason Kidd.

Michael Sam, the SEC defensive player of the year from Missouri, recently revealed he is gay and is taking part in this weekend's NFL draft combine.

 

(FOX 11 / AP) A police complaint alleges Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocked out his fiancee during an argument at an Atlantic City casino.

Police charged both Rice and Janay Palmer with simple assault in the incident Saturday at the Revel Casino.

A police complaint says Rice struck her with his hand, ''rendering her unconscious.'' Palmer is also accused of striking Rice with her hand.

Palmer's attorney, Robert Gamburg, said Thursday he's certain neither person committed a crime. Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, has said he hopes the case is shown to be a misunderstanding.

TMZ Sports released a video of what it says shows Rice dragging a seemingly motionless woman out of a Revel Casino elevator.

Diamondstein told The Press of Atlantic City ''this is obviously edited video.'' Neither he nor Palmer's attorney would comment about the video to The Associated Press.

 

(FOX 11 / AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have revealed a redesigned helmet and logo, part of a new look for next season.

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy joined Hall of Famer Warren Sapp on the NFL Network to make the announcement on Thursday night.

The Bucs will continue to wear pewter color helmets. In addition to an enlarged logo, still featuring a red battle flag with a skull sitting over crossed swords and a football, the head gear will sport the first chrome facemasks used by a NFL team.

It is Tampa Bay's first helmet and logo redesign since 1997, when the Bucs stopped wearing creamsicle orange jerseys and a helmet bearing the image of a winking pirate.

A news conference is set for March 5 to unveil redesigned uniforms.
