PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are sticking with what they know. nike free schuhe damen . The Steelers re-signed linebacker Larry Foote, wide receiver Plaxico Burress and tight end David Johnson on Tuesday while also tendering offers to four restricted free agents. Foote, 32, agreed to a three-year deal while the 35-year-old Burress will stick around for 2013. Foote and Burress join offensive lineman Ramon Foster as potential free agents who opted to remain in Pittsburgh rather than test the open market. Foster agreed to a three-year contract on Monday. Financial terms were not disclosed. The signings give the Steelers some stability in key spots. Foote started all 16 games at inside linebacker last season and his return allows the Steelers to bring former third-round pick Sean Spence back slowly from a devastating knee injury suffered at the end of the 2012 preseason. The 11-year veteran was his typically steady self for the NFLs top-ranked defence, finishing with four sacks and 113 tackles. Foote made $3 million in 2012 and expressed a desire to return to Pittsburgh at the end of a disappointing 8-8 season. If he had chosen to play elsewhere, the Steelers would have to find two new starting linebackers after they cut 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison on Saturday. Burress should provide depth after the Steelers lost Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Wallace to Miami. Burress struggled to get onto the field after returning to the Steelers last November. The hope he would quickly regain his rapport with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger never materialized. He caught just three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in three games and was made inactive three times. There should be more opportunities for Burress to get onto the field if he can remain healthy. Wallaces departure opened up at least one spot on the depth chart. The Steelers did tender an offer to Emmanuel Sanders on Tuesday, who will likely move to the teams No. 2 receiver behind Antonio Brown. Sanders had 44 receptions for 626 yards and a touchdown in 2012 while working mostly out of the slot. The Steelers also tendered offers to running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman, who likely will battle for the starting running back spot next season. Veteran running back Rashard Mendenhall, a free agent, almost certainly will not return to the Steelers. Dwyer and Redman combined for 1,033 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 2012 but had trouble staying on the field due to injury problems. Pittsburgh also brought Johnson back as insurance. Johnson was in a battle for the newly created fullback position before injuring his right knee in a preseason game last August. Johnson is fully recovered and could return to his usual spot at tight end while Heath Miller rehabs from a knee injury suffered in the regular-season finale against Cincinnati. Pittsburghs only notable free-agent addition through the first day of the new league year remains cornerback William Gay, who agreed to a three-year contract last week. The Steelers are unlikely to make a major splash during the signing period due to salary-cap concerns. The team has little wiggle room under the $123 million ceiling, though several players reportedly agreed to restructure deals, including Roethlisberger. The cap problems likely will cost Pittsburgh a handful of starters, including Harrison, Wallace, Mendenhall and cornerback Keenan Lewis, who led the AFC with 23 passes defenced in 2012. nike free schuhe . Strahan, who had 22 1/2 sacks in 2001 and 141 1/2 for his 15-year his career with the New York Giants, is joined by offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden of the Ravens and guard-tackle Larry Allen of the Cowboys and 49ers. nike free deutschland damen . The Dodgers are at $214.8 million for 21 signed players next season, according to a study of their contracts by The Associated Press. That follows last weekends additions of free agent pitcher Zack Greinke for a $147 million, six-year contract and South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin for a $36 million, six-year deal. . Bryzgalov will not make the trip for Thursdays game at Toronto. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren says the injury is not serious and Bryzgalov should return to the net this weekend. nik free run billig . -- Trevor Plouffe has struggled since returning from the disabled list and hitting into a triple play only served to highlight his recent problems. nike free run herren . Olazabal still had a putt to play, but when he missed, it clinched the biggest comeback in Ryder Cup history. Eight points down, the Americans won. It took 13 years, but Olazabal got a chance to get that one back. NEW YORK -- Raul Ibanez might not get as many at-bats as the marquee sluggers on the Yankees. Still, he has shown a flair for the dramatic that rivals any of his teammates. Ibanez hit a tiebreaking grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning and New York beat Toronto 6-3 on Monday night after Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista left the game with a wrist injury. Six of Ibanezs homers this season have either tied the score or given New York the lead, according to STATS LLC. Eight of his 12 long balls have come in the sixth inning or later. "I dont really think about it that much. Just try to do whatever I can to help out," Ibanez said of his clutch hitting. "Just try to stay in the moment." The Blue Jays might have lost one of baseballs top sluggers for an extended period. Bautista injured his left wrist on a swing in the eighth and was removed from the game. He hit a long foul ball against David Robertson and immediately grabbed his wrist, dropping into a crouch outside the batters box. Bautista walked off the field, gently supporting the wrist with his right hand after being attended to by several Toronto staff members. After the game, the Blue Jays said Bautista did not break a bone, but he has a tendon injury and will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity. "He didnt say exactly when" he hurt the wrist, Blue Jays manager John Farrell said. "But through the course of completing the swing he felt a little bit of a popping sensation." The Blue Jays will wait to make a move until they have a better idea how long the two-time defending AL home run champ will be out. "There will be a follow-up transaction tomorrow," Farrell said. "Certainly, Joses not going to be ready to go tomorrow." Ibanez connected on a 3-1 pitch from Jason Frasor for a no-doubt drive into the first row of the second deck in right field to snap a 2-all tie. One day after the Yankees left the bases loaded in the ninth inning of a 10-8 loss to the Angels, Ibanez helped New York win for the seventh time in nine games. The Yankees were 16 for 88 (.181) this season with the bases full before he homered. The majors two best power-hitting teams had padded their homer totals earlier -- with Yankee Stadium specials. Both Russell Martin, in the second inning, and Adam Lind, in the fourth, hit line drives into the first row in right field. "That short porch over there, its been nice to me," Martin said. Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano hit one-out singles in the eighth off Aaron Loup (0-1), recalled from the minors on Friday. Frasor came on and hit Mark& Teixeira in the foot with a pitch. nike free deutschland herren. Teixeira tried to fake that he jumped out of the way because the ball bounced into the stands and A-Rod would have scored. Rodriguez had advanced to second on a passed ball before Canos hit and was on third. Ibanez then hit his 10th career slam. He has been playing more because Brett Gardner has been on the disabled list since April 18 with an elbow injury and on Sunday he had his third setback in his rehabilitation. "Im not sure how many extra at-bats hes gotten," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Ibanez, signed in the off-season to primarily be a designated hitter. "But hes gotten a lot more playing time in left field and thats probably helped his numbers, his production." Robertson (1-3) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. Cody Eppley put two runners on with one out in the ninth. The Blue Jays scored an unearned run when left fielder Dewayne Wise, a defensive replacement, misplayed J.P. Arencibias single off Rafael Soriano, who finished for his 23rd save. Fans hoping to see an offensive outburst from homer-happy clubs were foiled by the wild but effective outings of Henderson Alvarez and Phil Hughes. Alvarez walked a career-high four in six innings. Hughes issued three free passes in seven innings, and each starter went over 100 pitches. Hughes was hurt by a one-out walk to Bautista in the sixth. The All-Star slugger scored from first on Edwin Encarnacions double that tied it 2-all. "Certainly wasnt a bad outing," Hughes said. "If this is the low end for the second half, that will be great." Cano extended his hitting streak to a career-high 19 games with an RBI double past a diving Bautista in right field in the third after Rodriguez lined a two-base hit to left-centre to make it 2-0. Rodriguez was moved from third base to designated hitter because he felt stiffness in his neck during batting practice. He went 2 for 4 and scored two runs. Linds homer to right in the fourth made it 2-1 and was the 20th of the season off Hughes, but only the first in four games. Rajai Davis snapped an 0-for-25 slump with a one-out double in the seventh. NOTES: Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (groin strain) makes his first start since June 24 on Tuesday. He faces lefty Brett Cecil. ... The division rivals have 15 meetings remaining this season. Toronto swept a two-game series in May. ... All five teams in the AL East were above .500 entering Monday -- the latest that has happened in one division since 1995, when the AL West was in a similar position on July 3, according to STATS LLC.
