NFL • The Cleveland Browns released veteran quarterback Vince Young on Monday, a few days after drafting Johnny Manziel. However, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam made it clear that Manziel will have to earn everything he gets and won’t jump Brian Hoyer on the depth chart just because he has a Heisman Trophy, celebrity friends or fame.
The team signed Young and quarterback Tyler Thigpen on May 1.
• St. Louis Rams receiver Stedman Bailey has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Kolstad, 24, a former Minnesota State-Mankato linebacker, was in critical condition Monday with a head injury.
Nelson played in 11 games last season, but announced afterward that he would transfer to Rutgers and what he said was a more pass-friendly offense.
