Seahawks-Panthers Trade

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers have acquired wide receiver Kevin Norwood in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for an undisclosed 2017 draft choice.

Carolina has been searching for answers at wide receiver ever since Kelvin Benjamin went down with a season-ending injury.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Norwood was a fourth-round draft choice by the Seahawks in 2014. He played nine games with two starts as a rookie, catching nine passes for 102 yards.

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said in a press release Monday that Norwood "has the size you look for along with toughness and smarts."

Gettleman said the Panthers had studied Norwood leading up to last year's draft.

White Sox 6-5 Win Over Mariners

mariners whiteCHICAGO (AP) - Rookie Tyler Saladino drove in the winning run with a single in the 11th inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied to beat the Seattle Mariners 6-5 on Sunday.

Alexei Ramirez singled and Tyler Flower walked to start the rally before Ramirez advanced to third on Carlos Sanchez's flyout and scored on Saladino's hit off David Rollins (0-1).

David Robertson (6-3) struck out three in two innings for the victory as the teams split the four-game series.

The White Sox tied the game in the ninth on shortstop Brad Miller's throwing error to first on pinch hitter Sanchez's grounder. Trayce Thompson scored after he singled off Carson Smith and stole second.

Kyle Seager homered for the third straight game and drove in the go-ahead run on a single in the eighth for the Mariners. Austin Jackson also had three hits, including a two-run home run and a triple.

Washington Keeps Starting QB Quiet Until Opener At Boise St.

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington coach Chris Petersen is keeping his starting quarterback a secret until taking the field for Friday night's season opener at No. 23 Boise State.

Petersen said Sunday the Huskies decided the best move for their program was withholding the name of their starting quarterback, in part to limit distractions heading into the opener. Junior Jeff Lindquist, redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels and true freshman Jake Browning competed for the job during fall camp.

Lindquist is the only one of the three with experience, starting last year's season opener against Hawaii. Browning has gained the most attention after setting national high school records at Folsom High just outside of Sacramento, California. Browning enrolled at Washington in January and because he got the experience of going through spring practice, Petersen says he doesn't view Browning as a true freshman.
