TODAY'S THOUGHT

When Jesus invited his disciples to wear his yoke, he was speaking to men who had seen a lot of animals pulling carts and plows. They knew that a yoke was used to bind two oxen together. Thus, to be yoked to Christ is to walk through all of life in union with Him.

- M. Craig Barnes

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS-CUTS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have released right guard Mike Remmers and declined an option on safety Andrew Sendejo's contract, clearing more than $10 million in space under their salary cap.
 
     The moves were made today, when NFL teams could begin negotiating deals with players eligible for unrestricted free agency on Wednesday. The Vikings also tendered contracts to safety Anthony Harris and offensive tackle Rashod Hill, both restricted free agents.
 
     The 29-year-old Remmers moved from tackle to guard last season, his second with the Vikings, but the offensive line continued to be a source of trouble. The 31-year-old Sendejo had been the primary starter next to fellow safety Harrison Smith since 2013, but a groin injury limited him to just five games in 2018.

    AP TOP 25 POLL

     RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Gonzaga, Virginia and North Carolina remain 1-2-3 atop an otherwise reshuffled top 10 in the latest AP Top 25 men's college basketball poll. The Zags sit on top for a third straight week, earning 41 of 64 first-place votes today. The Cavaliers earned the remaining 23 first-place votes. Kentucky and Duke round out the top five. Auburn is the only addition at No. 22, replacing UCF in the poll. Preseason No. 1 Kansas fell to No. 17 for its lowest ranking since the 2013-14 season, while UCF slid out from its No. 25 ranking in the last poll.

     NASCAR - BUSCH
 
     PHOENIX (AP) - After a sweep of the Xfinity and Cup series races over the weekend, Kyle Busch nears 200 career victories in NASCAR. With Busch one win away from that milestone following his weekend sweep of the Xfinity and Cup series races at ISM Raceway, his 78-year-old owner, Joe Gibbs, is ready to group him with the elites.
 
     Busch will have two opportunities to reach the milestone this weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. He will be back in his Xfinity ride seeking his third straight win in the series, then will hop in his No. 18 Toyota to chase his 53rd win in NASCAR's top series - a far cry from when "Rowdy" made his Trucks Series debut as a 16-year-old in 2001.

     NFL-RAIDERS-BROWN
 
     ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have agreed to sign free agent offensive tackle Trent Brown to a four-year deal worth a record $66 million.
 
     A person familiar with the contract said today that Brown will receive $36.75 million guaranteed in the richest contract ever for an offensive lineman. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be finalized until the new league year starts Wednesday.
 
     Brown went from a seventh-round draft pick by San Francisco in 2015 to a record-setting contract this offseason after starring in the playoffs for New England last season on the way to a Super Bowl title.

     NFL-SAN FRANCISCO-ALEXANDER
 
     SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to sign linebacker Kwon Alexander to a four-year contract worth $54 million.
 
     A person familiar with the contract said the sides came to an agreement today, soon after teams were allowed to contact pending unrestricted free agents. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be finalized until the new league year starts Wednesday.
 
     Alexander entered the league as a fourth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2015 and made the Pro Bowl his third season. But he tore the ACL in his left knee last October and played just six games. That didn't stop San Francisco from rewarding him with the richest deal ever for an inside linebacker.
 
     In other NFL moves:
 
     - The Chicago Bears have re-signed tight end Ben Braunecker to a two-year contract. The 6-foot-4 Braunecker made three starts for the Bears last season, including the playoff loss to Philadelphia, and appeared in 16 games in all.   In three seasons, he has seven catches for 83 yards and has 11 tackles on special teams.
 
     - The New York Giants have re-signed center Spencer Pulley to a three-year, $9.6 million contract. The Giants announced the signing of the restricted free agent on Monday, just days after re-signing fellow center Jon Halapio.  The 25-year-old Pulley played in 13 games last season, starting nine at center. He was the Giants' third center.
 
     - A person with direct knowledge of discussions tells The Associated Press the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign free-agent cornerback Kevin Johnson. Johnson visited with the Bills last week shortly after being cut by the Houston Texans. Johnson was selected by Houston in the first round of the 2015 draft but never met expectations because of injuries.
 
     - The Minnesota Vikings have released right guard Mike Remmers and declined an option on safety Andrew Sendejo's contract, clearing more than $10 million in space under the salary cap.
 
     - The Cleveland Browns have released veteran tight end Darren Fells, increasing the likelihood they address that position in free agency or the NFL draft.  Fells signed as a free agent with Cleveland last season.

    URBAN MEYER-FOX

    UNDATED (AP) - Urban Meyer is headed back to television. Fox announced Monday that it has hired the former Ohio State coach as one of the analysts for its retooled college football pregame show. Meyer, who won national championships at Florida and Ohio State, retired last season after eight years in charge of the Buckeyes. He worked for ESPN as an analyst in 2010 after leaving Florida and before going to Ohio State.
 
     During the Rose Bowl, Meyer said he enjoyed being a television analyst and did not rule out a return to broadcasting. He is also an assistant athletic director at Ohio State and teaches a class in the university's business school.
 
     Fox also announced that it has hired Reggie Bush and will move Brady Quinn from the booth to the studio. Bush will be reunited with former USC teammate Matt Leinart, who has been a part of Fox's studio team since 2015.
