Beckham joins Rams…Two extra Senators…Enterprise as common | Nationwide information from the Related Press

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has agreed to a one-year deal with the Rams. He chose Los Angeles and its burgeoning super team over several potential free-agent destinations. The Browns released Beckham on Monday midway through his third season in Cleveland. He cleared waivers with no team willing to pick up the $7.25 million he was owed under his last contract, freeing the five-time 1,000-yard wideout to sign with any team.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — It didn’t take long for former Atlanta linebacker Jacob Tuioti-Mariner to find a new home. The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Tuioti-Mariner to the practice squad just two days after he was released by the Falcons in a surprise move. He shared the team lead with two sacks and had nine tackles this season for Atlanta.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — The Ottawa Senators placed two more players in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol, hours before they were scheduled to host the Los Angeles Kings.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Lawyers for former Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs are telling a judge they found a witness who says firefighters were slow to extinguish a vehicle fire sparked by a deadly crash that authorities blame on Ruggs. Prosecutors allege Ruggs was driving drunk at speeds up to 156 mph before the crash. The Raiders have dropped Ruggs from the team. He’s on house arrest with strict conditions.

CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Despite an offseason that figures to be different than any since baseball’s last labor stoppage in 1994-95, the general manger meetings went on as planned in Southern California. A looming lockout at the expiration of baseball’s collective bargaining agreement Dec. 1 didn’t change much for heads of baseball operations who say the week was “business as usual.” League and union officials bargained Tuesday and Wednesday, but there’s no indication that a deal is anywhere close.
