A person with knowledge of the situation says Dwight Howard has agreed to join the Atlanta Hawks, who also re-signed Kent Bazemore.Howard received a three-year contract worth $70.5 million, while Bazemore will get $70 million over four years, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because contracts cant be signed until July 7.Howard returns to his hometown after three seasons in Houston, where he battled injuries and wasnt the force he was earlier in his career. He managed just 13.7 points per game last season, lowest since he averaged 12 as a rookie for Orlando after being taken with the No. 1 selection in the 2004 draft out of Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy.Bazemore, who turned 27 on Friday, started 68 games for the Hawks last season, averaging 11.6 points.---AP Sports Writer Charles Odum in Atlanta contributed to this report.

On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Receiver Antonio Brown is well aware of the Pittsburgh Steelers track record of successfully mounting late-season playoff pushes.When December rolls around, the Steelers traditionally heat up.The goal is to continue to get hot, Brown said. We know whats at stake. We know whats expected of us. And we want to finish strong.Following a four-game swoon, the Steelers (7-5) are on a roll in having won three straight to move into a tie with Baltimore atop the AFC North in preparing to travel to play the Buffalo Bills (6-6) on Sunday.This is no time for a letdown, especially after an efficient 24-14 win over the New York Giants .You know how important these games are for us in terms of positioning, coach Mike Tomlin said. Like we talked about openly last week, December football: Getting into that mentality and understanding what December football is like.Since 2000, the Steelers have combined to go 46-18 over their final four games of a season. And theyve only twice had two or fewer wins over the seasons final quarter, going 1/3 in both 2012 and 2007.Thats not been the case in Buffalo, where the Bills inability to produce a finishing kick has been a contributing factor to their 16-season playoff drought, the NFLs longest active streak.Since 2000, the Bills are a combined 25-39 in the seasons final quarter, and have won more than two of their final four games once. That happened in 2004 when Buffalo was on a 6-0 roll before being eliminated from contention with a season-ending home loss to a Steelers team that rested its starters after having already secured its playoff spot.This experience right here could be the start of something new, Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. Thats what were trying to do, is to take seize of it right now, this opportunity that we have.The Bills have left little margin for error in having to win out and get help from other teams to have a shot at the postseason.They must also rebound from a dreadful collapse at Oakland, where Buffalo squandered a 15-point third-quarter lead in a 38-24 loss .TESTY TAYLOR: Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor isnt taking kindly to criticism.Im done talking, the second-year starter tersely said shortly after ending his 10-minute weekly news conference during which he faced numerous questions regarding his inconsistent play. Taylor is overseeing the NFLs worst-ranked passing attack which, in his defense, has been depleted by injuries.Whats concerning is how little impact Taylor has had influencing wins.dddddddddddd His numbers are similar whether the Bills win or lose.In six wins, he has 1,000 yards passing and eight touchdowns (including two rushing). In six losses, he has 1,292 yards passing and nine touchdowns (four rushing).The big difference is the Bills NFL-leading rushing attack has 424 more yards in its six wins than losses.SHADY vs. JUICE: Two of the NFLs most dynamic running backs are squaring off. Buffalos LeSean McCoy leads the NFL in averaging 5.5 yards per carry, while Pittsburghs LeVeon Bell is averaging 145 yards from scrimmage since missing the first three games because of an NFL suspension.Thats a bad man right there, McCoy said of Bell.McCoy is no slouch, having already topped 100 yards rushing five times and 100 yards from scrimmage in seven times.WINTER WONDERLAND: Snows in the forecast this weekend, and thats fine for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.Its fun to play in the snow, said Roethlisberger, who recalled growing up watching Bills Hall of Famer Jim Kelly competing in the frosty elements. I wouldnt want to be anywhere else.SEEKING SACK HELP: The Bills are coming off their first game of the season without a sack. And cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman knows its never easy hauling down Roethlisberger, whos been sacked just 16 times this season.Roethlisbergers 6-foot-5, 240-pound frame is particularly daunting for the 5-foot-8, 165-pound Robey-Coleman.Im going to let you know right now, Im not big enough to bring him down, he said with a laugh. Im going to need the cavalry to come and help me out a little bit. I might be able to probably pull down his shoulder sleeve, but thats about it.TURNING THE CORNER: Pittsburghs rejuvenated secondary held the Giants in check last week thanks in part to cornerback Ross Cockrell . Drafted by Buffalo in 2014, he was cut loose in the 2015 preseason and picked up by Pittsburgh.Bills coach Rex Ryan isnt surprised by Cockrells success.I get the brilliant idea that maybe we should stash him on the practice squad, Ryan said. As soon as we did that, guess what? I thought no one had tape on him. Unfortunately for us, Pittsburgh picked him up.---AP Sports Writer Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL T-shirts Discount Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping China Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
