LEEDS, England (AP) The San Francisco 49ers ownership group has reached an agreement to take over English soccer club Leeds with NBA players Larry Nance Jr. and T.J. McConnell joining as minority investors.

The NFL team's investment arm - 49ers Enterprises - originally bought a 15 percent stake from Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani in 2018 and increased it to 44 percent in late 2021.

Leeds didn't specify the sale price for the remaining 56 percent but British media reported it to be 170 million pounds ($214 million).

Broncos sign OLB Clark with Browning out

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos have agreed to a one-year, $5.5 million deal with former Kansas City Chiefs edge rusher Frank Clark following third-year pro Baron Browning's knee operation, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

Browning underwent a procedure in recent weeks to repair a torn meniscus, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't publicly addressed the outside linebacker's health status and won't discuss Clark's contract until he signs. Browning is expected to be back for training camp next month.

Seahawks unsure of Adams, Brooks status

RENTON, Wash. (AP) After seeing them in person this week during the team’s mandatory minicamp, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said it will continue to be a race for safety Jamal Adams and linebacker Jordyn Brooks to be ready by the start of training camp next month.

But to this point, Carroll isn’t ruling out at least Adams being ready by the time the regular season begins on Sept. 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.
