MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms on a deal with free agent receiver Greg Jennings from their rivals in Green Bay. Jennings caught 36 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns in eight games for the Packers last season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says the Denver Broncos were forced to cut defensive lineman Elvis Dumervil after a delay in getting paperwork completed on a new contract that both parties had agreed to. They came to an agreement about a half-hour before the 1:59 p.m. deadline, but because the team hadn't received the paperwork to make the deal official before then, it was forced to release him. Denver could still bring back the defensive end.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets third baseman David Wright has a moderate strain on the left side of his rib cage that will shut him down until next week, leaving his status for opening day uncertain. Wright was a late scratch from the U.S. team's line-up in the World Baseball Classic game against the Dominican Republic Thursday night. He traveled to New York to have the injury checked out.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Kyle Busch won the pole for Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a track record qualifying lap. Busch turned a lap at 129.535 mph in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Kasey Kahne (KAYN) qualified and Busch's teammate Denny Hamlin was third.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) —PGA rookie Shawn Stefani remains the leader through two rounds of the Tampa Bay Championship following a 1-under 70. His 7-under total gives Stefani a one-shot lead over Adam Scott and K.J. Choi.
