NFL • Free-agent defensive end Michael Bennett is returning to Seattle after agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.

Terms of the contract were not immediately available on Monday. Bennett was considered one of the top free agents in the NFL after a breakout season with the Seahawks where he led the team in sacks (8½) and proved a versatile option as a defensive end and defensive tackle.

Bennett took a chance on himself last offseason by signing a one-year deal for $3 million in base salary.



• The New York Jets have parted ways with wide receiver Santonio Holmes, cutting the talented but injury-plagued playmaker after four seasons.

• Martha Ford will take over her late husband's controlling interest in the Detroit Lions, keeping the team within the family after a half-century under the leadership of William Clay Ford, who died Sunday at age 88.

• Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper is retiring after struggling with an ankle injury the last two seasons. Kuper, a fifth-round pick in Denver's 2006 draft, started 79 games at guard over eight seasons.

Cardinals introduce shortstop Diaz

MLB • After spending years trying to find a quality shortstop, the St. Louis Cardinals now appear to have an excess. The Cardinals introduced their newest acquisition, Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz, on Monday in Jupiter, Fla.

The Cardinals signed Diaz to a four-year deal over the weekend only months after signing Jhonny Peralta, a two-time All-Star, to a free-agent contract of the same length. Having Peralta will allow the Cardinals to take their time with the 23-year-old Diaz, who will begin this season in the minor leagues and likely be given a chance to learn multiple infield positions.
