Giants star Strahan files for divorce

In Montclair, N.J., New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan filed for divorce from his wife of almost six years Monday, the same day a judge issued a restraining order against her, a spokesman for Strahan said.

Superior Court Judge Thomas P. Zampino ordered Jean M. Strahan to deposit into escrow more than $3 million she had removed from the couple's joint bank account last week and deposited into her own account, said Ernie Landante, who works for a public relations agency hired by the 12-year veteran.

On Thursday, Strahan was served with a temporary restraining order telling him to keep away from his wife.

  • Defensive end Courtney Brown was released by the Cleve¤land Browns, although the move may be only temporary.
  • Brown, the first overall choice in the 2000 draft, was cut a day before he was due a $2.5 million roster bonus.

    The Browns attempted to redo his contract before releasing him and will continue talks with his agent, Marvin Demoff.

    The Browns also signed defensive tackle Jason Fisk to a three-year contract.

    The 10-year veteran played the past three seasons with San Diego. He recorded 30 tackles and one sack in 15 games in 2004.

  • The Miami Dolphins released fullback Rob Konrad a year after he made just one start and missed six games with various injuries.
