(Reuters) - The settlement of a wrongful termination grievance reached in January between the Baltimore Ravens and running back Ray Rice was for $1.59 million, the Baltimore Sun reported on Tuesday, citing sources. Rice filed the grievance after he was cut from the Ravens and had his $35 million contract terminated in September, when a graphic video surfaced of him knocking out his then-finance in a New Jersey casino elevator. Rice, a three-time Pro Bowler, had sought back pay from his $3.5 million base salary for the 2014 season.
By John O'Brien SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Paula Creamer ended a four-year title drought when she drained a monster 75-foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole at the 2014 HSBC Women's Champions event and the American was keen to recreate a little bit of history on her return to Singapore. Back at the scene of one of her finest professional triumphs, Creamer was playing a practice round on the lush Serapong Course and could not resist dropping a few balls down on the 18th green to see if she still possessed the Midas touch. "I played the back nine yesterday and I went and putted it a couple times to see," Creamer told reporters on Tuesday, recalling the moment she claimed her first title since the 2010 U.S. Open when she edged Spain's Azahara Munoz in that playoff.
