FILE - In this Thursday, July 24, 2008 file photo, SEC Officials Coordinator Rogers Redding speaks to the media about new rule changes at the SEC football media days in Hoover, Ala. The targeting rule could be changed in college football next season, eliminating the automatic ejection for some hits, if an American Football Coaches Association proposal is approved by the NCAA Football Rules Committee. Rogers Redding, the NCAA's national coordinator of officials, said that because the AFCA proposal concerns player safety, it would go into effect in 2019 if approved. Most other types of rules changes go into effect in even-numbered years under the NCAA two-year rules cycle. (AP Photo/Butch Dill, File)

The NFL and the NFL Players Association has released a joint statement saying an independent administrator found Panthers safety Eric Reid received the “normal” number of drug tests this season and he was not the subject of targeting by the league. Reid said in December he had been tested seven times by the NFL. He said the league was targeting him because of the ongoing collusion case against the NFL alleging that team owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial and social injustice.

Spending on Major League Baseball payrolls dropped last season for the first time since 2010, an $18 million decrease attributable to drug and domestic violence suspensions and a player retiring at midseason. Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano lost about $11.7 million and Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo approximately $3.5 million after positive drug tests. Closer Roberto Osuna’s domestic violence suspension cost him roughly $2.1 million from Toronto and Houston, and Baltimore outfielder Colby Rasmus walked away from about $1.5 million rather than try to come back from a hip injury.
