Sanders Commings reaches deal with Chiefs


The Kansas City Chiefs have signed safety Sanders Commings.

Commings, a former Westside standout, was the Chiefs’ fifth-round draft pick out of Georgia. He played primarily cornerback in college, starting 35 games and making 154 tackles. But he’s been playing safety for the Chiefs during their first two weeks of organized team activities.

REDSKINS: Robert Griffin III says he cried after his knee surgery and changed his cellphone passcode to the date of the season opener as he began his rehabilitation process.

Griffin held his first in-depth news conference Thursday since his reconstructive knee surgery in January. He also took part in an off-season practice session in which he wore a large black brace.

Griffin says he’s “hashed things out” with coach Mike Shanahan, who was widely criticized for leaving Griffin in the game after the quarterback was injured during the playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

COWBOYS: Prosecutors say defensive tackle Josh Brent has violated conditions of his bond and want it revoked pending trial on an intoxicated manslaughter charge.

Brent is free on a $100,000 bond after being charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown Jr.

COURTS: DeKalb County (Ga.) police have made an arrest in the murder of ex-NFL player David McMillan III.

Antonio Faust, 19, confessed to shooting McMillan, who played for Cleveland in 2005-07, in an attempted robbery, police say.
