Canadian AHLer jailed
SAN ANTONIO -- A Canadian hockey player ended up in a San Antonio jail earlier this week after allegedly breaking into a home while "heavily intoxicated" and making himself comfortable.
Hamilton's Scott Timmins, a forward with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage, was arrested early Monday morning and charged with criminal trespassing.
According to San Antonio police, a 43-year-old woman awoke in her home to find Timmins sitting on her couch.
The police report said Timmins, 23, was heavily intoxicated, smelled of alcohol and was unable to maintain his balance.
Police say the woman asked, "Who are you?" and Timmins allegedly replied "Who are you?"
Timmins also allegeldy told police he couldn't remember how he entered the residence but he did recall being out at a local bar with several teammates earlier in the night and had no intentions of harming anyone in the home.
Wallace a Dolphin
MIAMI -- A person with knowledge of the agreement says receiver Mike Wallace has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Miami Dolphins.
The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no deal had been announced Tuesday night.
In four years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wallace caught 32 touchdown passes. He gives the Dolphins the speedy deep threat they lacked last season, when their wideouts totalled three touchdowns.
The Dolphins' top priority at the start of free agency was to upgrade at receiver and provide another target for Ryan Tannehill, a rookie last year.
Miami also reached a deal with inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who helped the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl last season.
Boldin to 49ers
SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers landed another playmaking wide receiver to catch those deep passes from Colin Kaepernick.
San Francisco agreed Tuesday to acquire Anquan Boldin from the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick.
The deal, announced by the team shortly after the start of the free agency period Tuesday, is pending a physical. Boldin expressed surprise at the trade and thanked the Ravens' supporters in a series of posts on Twitter.
