Jared Allen to meet with Dallas

Pass-rusher Jared Allen has become a man on the move. [Allen's] first free-agent visit is over, and now the veteran pass rusher has a second one lined up. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Allen has a meeting scheduled with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, according to a source informed of Allen's schedule. Rapoport reported earlier that Allen met with theSeattle Seahawks on Sunday, citing two sources informed of the player's situation. No deal with the Seahawks is imminent. Allen has turned down several offers as he waits for a deal that's commensurate with his abilities. Allen, 31, is coming off an 11.5-sack season with the Minnesota Vikings and has averaged 13 sacks per season over the course of his 10-year career. He is open to the idea of retirement. ( Comment

Can Woodson keep job, after all? title=

Steve Mills isn't so much being pushed out to make way for Phil Jackson. It's more like he's scooting over. [Jim Cleamons] may or may not be part of the mix. He was an assistant under Jackson from 1989-96 in Chicago and for 10 years across two tours in Los Angeles. His name has been mentioned as a potential candidate to replace Mike Woodson as the Knicks head coach should a change be made. But Cleamons was 28-70 during a short tenure as a head coach in Dallas from 1996-98. He could also be brought in as an assistant to teach Jackson's Triangle offense. A source said the Knicks coaching situation was not part of the discussions with Jackson and likely won't be addressed until after the season. That opens the possibility Woodson has a chance to keep his job if the Knicks continue playing well." (New York Post) Comment

Tigers mum on Iglesias reports title=

 Brad Ausmus remembers the moment clearly. When Tigers' shortstop Jose Iglesias ran to first in the team's first exhibition game on Feb. 27, he could tell something was bothering him. "It looked almost like he was running on glass a little bit," Ausmus said. So he told head trainer Kevin Rand. "You need to check on him and make sure he's alright," he said. Iglesias wasn't. ... [The] news went from the back burner to the front burner on Saturday evening when multiple sources reported that Iglesias could miss an extended period of time, perhaps as long as most of the season. But speaking in the dugout at Space Coast Stadium on Sunday, Dombrowski didn't confirm that, saying past being shelved for Opening Day, "Really, at this point, anything beyond that is more speculation."
